    Default Classic Library Finder

    Hello everyone, i was wondering on how to use the classic "search for packages".

    When i looked for example say "chromium", a list would show the different versions, users repositories, and the link to those repos.


    Can i get the classic one back or is it any way of making the new one better?
    Actually the main thing is, getting the repository address so i can add it thought YaST



    Thanks

    It has seem to have lost some functionality. Not a direct answer but the one-click install will add all of the needed repos to your system by default. Maybe they decided it would be redundant to have that and a link to the repository as well.

    I still see them. Did you see the "Show other versions" link below the button?

    Its strange, for example, try looking for "wine".
    It wont show any "user-made" versions of the package.
