    Finally, also wanted to install Google Earth and failed...The same window appeared... Install Package Files... It is necessary a license agreement... Waiting to start the service... (Es necesario un acuerdo de licencia... Esperano a que se inicie el servicio, had 12.1 in Spanish, my language)... So, the point is this.. Have this trouble with this concrete issue...This will not let me install anything at all... Any tip to solve this?, please!!!

    Looks to me like a bug in apper (I cannot check it since I do not use
    apper).
    One solution for you is to download the rpm files to your hard disk and
    install them with zypper from a terminal.
    If you do not know how report back.

    Ok download the rpm for skype (by selecting not to open it when you
    click on it in the browser but save it) for example to your Downloads
    directory.
    Do the same with google earth.
    Now open a terminal
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    sudo zypper install skype-2.2.0.35-suse.i586.rpm
    do the same for google earth (of course with the filename of the google
    earth rpm.

    Installed both of them. Thanks a lot!!.
    Got one first simple new solicitude: How would I be able to reinstall the Apper?
    Second solicitude: Used to be able to work as root when using 11.2. Do not what really happenned but realized that was lost during the installation of v12.1 and missed being able to choose whether working as root or as user. Rather work as root in order to have the superuser powers to update, for instance, with zypper dup... Not able to make it work -from a terminal as a (single) user.
    Would you please help me with both tips.

    first: aphc, do NOT use Apper, it is broken! instead, always use YaST or
    zypper. does anyone know if it can be uninstalled with YaST or
    zypper--it IS broken! [i've uninstalled packagekit from 11.4, which was
    also broken])

    second, please ahpc! you should never log into KDE/Gnome/XFCE or any
    other *nix-like system's graphical user interface desktop environment as
    root..

    doing so 1) opens you up to several different security problems if you
    (for example) browse the net, 2) too many, far too easy ways to damage
    your system no matter how careful your actions (for
    example: well documented cases of unintended change of ownership of
    ~/.ICEauthority and ~/.Xauthority from user to root sometimes occurs),
    3) anyway logging into KDE/etc as root is *never* required to
    do any and all administrative duties, 4) and, not even logging in as
    root just to see if it works as root is useful, because the "yes" or
    "no" learned is almost always totally useless in finding the
    problem giving the symptoms...while, logging into the GUI as root to
    learn the yes/no could _cause_ the next adverse symptom encountered.

    so, always log in as yourself, and "become root" by using a root powered
    application (like YaST, File Manager Superuser Mode) or using "su -",
    sudo, kdesu, or gnomesu in a terminal to launch whatever tool is needed
    (like Kwrite to edit a config file)...read more on all that here:

    http://tinyurl.com/6ry6yd

    additionally: after logging into KDE/Gnome/etc as root, if you
    experience problems (for example, with uncommanded file ownership and
    permissions changes) and if you can provide us with details of what you
    were doing while you were logged in as root, that would help us identify
    if there's a bug that needs to be fixed...thanks for your help..

    sure you can! while logged into KDE, etc as yourself, just open a
    terminal and type in
    Code:
    su -
    and give the root password when asked....the command prompt will turn
    red and include the root symbol (#) to remind you that in this terminal
    everything you do is as root--so, be CAREFUL..

    and, by the way: "zypper dup" (Perform a distribution upgrade.) is NOT a
    command you should ever do unless you are moving from one version to
    another (like 11.4 to 12.1) it is _not_ a command to use to simply add
    security patches to previously installed code (zypper patch) or to
    replace older application versions with newer (zypper up)

    Indeed, Apper - is a complete disaster! I wonder who's idea was to set it default application for RPM in 12.1?
    For me it always hangs at this stage:



    And there is no pop-up/pop-under, it does not respond to button "Continue"

    Used zypper to install skype
