    Is the texlive-humanities package missing from 12.2 ?

    Where do I find it?

    A quick search revealed that maybe you meant 'texlive-collection-humanities'

    Hmmm, Yes, that's the package, thank you; but it's not available in 12.2, only in the unreleased beta, factory version. I just tried installing the 12.3 version and got this error:

    An error occurred while initializing the software repository.
    openSUSE:Factory: [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    - [|] Repository type can't be determined.

    Try again?

    I have no idea what that means--any suggestions?

    It is part of TeXlive 2012 - the default install is 2011. You can get it from the Publishing/TeXlive repository. If you add this

    Index of /repositories/Publishing:/TeXLive/openSUSE_12.2

    to your repositories, it will appear in YaST Software Management.

    which says:

    it was designed for citations in German Humanities, especially
    film studies, and offers some features that are not provided by the
    standard biblatex styles. The style is highly optimized for documents
    written in German, and the main documentation is only available in
    "RPM found in directory:
