    Add the packman repositories.

    Additional package repositories - openSUSE

    I tried that but packagekit is still causing trouble
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.1/ packman
    PackageKit is blocking zypper. This happens if you have an updater applet or other software management application using PackageKit running.
    Tell PackageKit to quit? [yes/no] (no): y
    PackageKit is still running (probably busy).
    Try again? [yes/no] (no): y
    PackageKit is still running (probably busy).
    Try again? [yes/no] (no): y
    PackageKit is still running (probably busy).
    Try again? [yes/no] (no):
    and the only software I have open is firefox and terminal.

    You need to quit it. If you can't figure it out. Just reboot and start
    with the guide without any delay (before packagekit kicks in)

    Are you using gnome or kde

    Or kill it.

    Or, rename the frontends, then reboot.
