    First of all, please don't get irritated. I took a step without asking you.

    I changed the priority of the Gnome repo to 98 via yast using Terminal.
    Then did
    Code:
    zypper dup
    but in Desktop mode.

    I just logged out from Gnome , presssed ctrl+alt+F1 >>>>logged in as myself >>>then su to gain root>>>then did

    Code:
    zypper mr -p 98 GNOME_STABLE_3.0
    zypper dup
    It says nothing to do.

    Sorry again.

    Hi
    Ok check your repo priority has changed, then force the install of alacarte (so it re-installs)
    Code:
    zypper in -f alacarte

    Hi
    So add a new entry under Preferences->System;
    Code:
    Type: Application
    Name: YaST
    Command: /usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2
    Then click on the icon and browse to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps and select yast.png and you should be good to go.

    Gem of information,

    The reason YaST goes missing is it is flagged as 'settings' which, by default, is not shown under Gnome 3 applications -> A design decision by the Gnome 3 developers.

    I personally, have not tried alacarte, but looked into how Gnome 3 chooses its application list. It turns out that it uses information in the /usr/share/applications/ folder, specifically the .desktop files.

    The initial code in the YaST.desktop file is:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    Type=Application
    Categories=Settings;System;X-SuSE-Core-System;X-SuSE-ControlCenter-System;
    Name=YaST
    Icon=yast
    GenericName=Administrator Settings
    Exec=/usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Removing the 'Settings' flag in Categories gives
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    Type=Application
    Categories=System;X-SuSE-Core-System;X-SuSE-ControlCenter-System;
    Name=YaST
    Icon=yast
    GenericName=Administrator Settings
    Exec=/usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Restarting Gnome (or the system) puts YaST back into the applications menu under System tools. Voila

    You must be able to force it down? Alternatively, doing as in my post will bring applications back. It works alongside alacarte causing no issues
