    it would also help potential answer givers if you tell your desktop
    environment...but without that i will guess you are using KDE and say:

    go to the openSUSE main menu (on mine its a green circle with a gecko
    head in it) and in the search block type in "file manager", a list will
    appear, click on File Manager - Superuser Mode

    you will then be asked for the root password, type it in and then that
    instance of the file manager has all necessary permissions to do
    everything you want to do, and LOTS of things you don't want to do
    (because, deleting the wrong file could damage your system)

    when the file manager comes alive, nav to /var/tmp/ then look for
    TmpDir.VXQojc and delete it..

    my advice would be to then close that File Manager - Super User Mode
    because if you leave it open and then forget how powerful it is, it
    would be real easy to mess up your system..

    oh, if you can't follow those instructions: please tell us the desktop
    environment and version you are using...(i have no idea if what i gave
    is useful in Gnome3)

    Download the skype rpm to your ~/Downloads folder
    Then open a terminal window, and do
    cd ~/Downloads
    su -c 'zypper in skype-'
    This will install skype and pull in the necessary additional packages.
