    Are you trying to use Apper/PackageKit?

    Try using YaST > Software > Online Update

    You might have to YaST > Software > Online Update Configuration
    ~Thank you for sharing an interesting problem.

    You need to install the package "python-kde4-plasma".
    Type the following into a konsole:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in python-kde4-plasma
    or use YaST->Software Management to install it...

    Hmm "python-kde4-plasma" was not required in a clean 12.3 KDE, and update to KDE-4.10.2 on any of the systems I manage. Anyway I would hope that YaST would fix any dependencies.

    ok, on the 16th of this month you wrote "So new to linux I sqeek - I
    don't have a clue"....so, i'm gonna _forgive_ you for thinking like a
    MS-Windows (only) user as i explain (nicely i hope) that what you
    wrote above is just not the way it is actually is..

    [i know this because i bought the machine i'm typing on a couple of
    years ago after my only machine (a Linux only box) died ...and the
    new machine came with Win7 installed and i _had_ to use it to
    download a Linux image and burn a install disk...

    SO, from that experience i know that that Win7 would routinely GRAB
    my machine at boot and NOT let go until Redmond had had its way with
    it....*every* time i booted it or tried to shut down i was totally
    out of control!]

    that is not what happens in openSUSE or Linux in general (i do not
    know about all of the distros)

    here YOU are in control! YOU _are_ the user *and* the System
    Administrator..

    NO updates flow into your machine until the System Administrator (aka
    'Root') has approved them......

    so, when you have a problem you suspect was caused by an update,
    instead of writing it like "OpenSuse ran an update" (its NOT my fault
    that 'they' broke the system) you could write "My system
    administrator updated the system today without having clear knowledge
    of the potential implications of that action and more egregiously,
    with *no* idea of how to reverse the damage!

    or, you could just write you think the update YOU put in broke the
    system..

    ok?

    Upto KDE 4.10.1 this was contained in python-kde4. Then that package got split up in smaller subpackages.
    From the changelog:
    * Mon Mär 25 2013 speilicke@suse.com
    - Split out sub-packages for seldomly-used modules that also have heavy
    requirements: akonadi, khtml, knewstuff, phonon, plasma, nepomuk, soprano
    Which sub-packages you need depends on which plasmoids you use. A standard KDE installation with default settings doesn't need any of them AFAIK.

    For the next version all of them will be installed by default, but you can individually uninstall them if you want to.
    * Mon Apr 22 2013 hrvoje.senjan@gmail.com
    - Recommend all sub-packages for the main package, so users don't
    have go guess which module is required (bnc#816432, bnc#816562)

    Most of the time this message originates in older (no longer maintained) widgets. Check whether the problem arises on a new clean user account. If it doesn't, remove your non-default widgets and see if the problem persists.

    Or just install the package "python-kde4-plasma" as I wrote earlier...

    It was a reference point - the word 'update' was not to attached to blame rather in my mind it was a point of reference to a sequence.
    Im happy to seek out a resolution to my problem. and am happy to report that WE ( people who helped) fixed MY problem-
    I find the linux community to be a really nice and generous and..patient group of folk.

    i am slowly finding my way ..much lov ..cheers

    thanks
