    I have a feeling that I don't need ALL of these. How to ONLY install FrostWire without dependencies using "zypper" command line?

    Try using the --no-recommends flag first. Perhaps that will limit the additional packages.

    zypper is correct, the package needs everything requested.

    FrostWire package manually depends of the most part of packages. If you think any dep is unnecessary ask Packman.

    The Thunderbird (libxpcom_core.so) and xulrunner181 dependencies come from the jdic package from Packman. Perhaps the jdic package can be created without such deps (not sure about this xpcom vs xpcom_core thing, and perhaps xulrunner190 works)... once again, ask Packman.

    So is there currently NO WAY to FORCE zypper to install FrostWire and IGNORE all other deps???

    The dependencies are exactly that - they are apparently required. If you're determined to install and ignore them, you can use rpm command. Something like:

    rpm ivh --nodeps <URL>

    but its not sensible.
