    You can go through this guide at 1. Introduction - Beginner's Guide to openSUSE 12.1 / SUSE Linux
    particularly this page-
    11. Software Repositories - Adding and Managing Package Repositories

    1. For getting the latest security packages and important bug-fixes, you can run Yast > Online update.

    2. For getting packages related to KDE desktop, you can open up Yast > Software Management > View drop down menu, get Package Groups. This will get you a tab called Package Groups, in which you can find KDE desktop. Then you can install kde related packages, etc.

    And adding to DenverD's plea not to doublepost, I can add that thh title of this thread is a bad one. It does not describe your technical need at all. The title of your other threead is much better.

    Because this is a DOUBLE POST, I will CLOSE it. Please go to the other mentioned above.

    Strange, I don't seem to get anything that would help in any way either.

    I put your subject "need help here" in Google's search field.

    Strange indeed...
