As an openSUSE user I find that third party applications that provide
RPM packages work most of the time, and sometimes need little
depedendency tweaks. For instance ( presumably due to the way Fedora
packages are built ) the Slack RPM package requires libappindicator,
but the openSUSE package only providers libappindicator1.

Why does the package require libappindicator? The automatic dependency
generator of rpm would generate a dependency on, which is provided by the library packages
no matter how they are called.
