    No, you would have to tell us what's wrong with it. Error messages
    usually help.

    Are you aware of YaST?

    Kind regards,

    apt is not for openSUSE. Please use yast or zypper. Synaptic is already available in the repositories.

    >apt-get install synaptic
    Lese Paketlisten... Fertig
    Erzeuge Abhngigkeitsbaum... Fertig
    E: Konnte Paket synaptic nicht finden

    That is the error message. Do you know the repository which includes synaptic? I am not aware of Yast, but I am missing some debian packages and synaptic is easier and faster.

    Assuming that you are using KDE:

    Under the main menu (accessed by clicking the SUSE lizard on the bottom left corner of the screen), go to:
    Applications -> System -> Configuration -> Administrative Settings.

    This will launch Yast tool - a very comprehensive tool to manage many things. Choose Software Management under Software tab. You can search for packages too there. Also, explore other options of the tool.

    The packages I found by searching were only synaptic touchpad utilies or something like that. Or I am to silly for it. I have OpenSUSE 11.1, mabey that could be the problem.

    Okay, I have found it for 10.3, so I believe it isn't available for 11.1. Am I right?
