    This functionality is in K3b (under the Tools menu) as long as you have the appropriate media codecs installed.

    Install k3b and k3b-codecs

    But there are other rippers for gnome if you insist : asunder or goobox

    You are most likely missing the required audio codecs which can't be shipped with openSUSE due to potential legal issues. My guess would be to install them from the packman repository where they are maintained:

    For openSUSE 11.4
    Code:
     zypper -ar http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_11.4/Essentials/packman-essentials.repo
    Then install the missing codecs...

    The application k3b would not normally be added to the desktop, but rather to the menu of applications.

    Open a terminal and type: k3b
    hit enter

    What happens? Post any errors that come in the terminal
