    Default Problem with Software Center

    I tried to install Software-center from software.opensuse.org:. I am using OpenSuse12.2 release. I know it's not stable, but it installed successfully. But when I try to execute it, it doesn't launch. It fails with below error:
    "
    ERROR:rootebFileApplication import

    module = __import__(distro_id, globals(), locals(), [], -1)
    ImportError: No module named openSUSE

    "

    Your help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Hello and welcome here.

    You may have noticed that the layout of your copied/pasted computer output does not show to advantage. In short it is a bit messy and hardly readable. To prevent this there is a feature on the forums, that is rather hidden. Thus I have to expiain it to you. These are CODE tags, You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the toolbar of the post editor. Then please copy/paste directly from the terminal in between the two tags. The best is to copy completely with the prompt, the command (both missing here) the output and the last prompt (also missing here). Thus we have a complete view of what yoy did and got.

    TIA

    And the people using ThunderBird, as I do, you need to add them manually.

    As I said, you need to add them manually as there is no magic # button
    that adds

    Code:
    
    
    text automagically.

    I know, I just have a bunch of copy-paste strings in tomboy. I'm just
    pointing to a page where you can obtain the entire list of available codes.

    Are you aware of the fact that openSUSE recommends using YaST for software management purposes .Do feel free to use any package management tool but you might not get ***adequate help*** if you are using those.
    From what repo did you install it. the only active repo for 12.2 is labelled "playground" where people may be **testing** testing stuff out . Also don't install any sruff from *factory* as it has not left the *assembly line* and it is not a finished car oops! package
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit

    You need to look again as there are many others "active" including packman.
