    Hello new poster,

    Welcome here.

    Please allways tell which version of openSUSE you use.

    As you do not tell/show us how you tried to search for python, we have to make many assumptions. I can find it on my system with:
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> which python
    /usr/bin/python
    henk@boven:~>
    And mine is of course installed by defaultt during system installation (openSUSE 12.2, but I assume others are similar or same).

    So, please explain what you are doing and why you installed it from a foreign source.

    HiThanks, i use Opensuse 13.1. When i code it in Terminal i get Python 2.7.5 I have also try to install it from Yast, but with the same result. I try to search from Yast and mainmeny, but i did not find it any place.

    Please do not tell stories like: "when I code it in terminal". Show what you do in the terminal and what you get like I did. Copy/paste from the terminal in between CODE tags in the post. You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.

    And here:
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> python
    Python 2.7.3 (default, Apr 14 2012, 08:58:41) [GCC] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> 
    henk@boven:~>
    So I get 2.7.3, but it being on 12.2, that is quite possible.

    But when you say you get python 2.7.5, then what is it you can not find? It is there and you can call it. What is the problem?

    What is it really what you cannot find, as you say you removed "it"
    (whatever "it" really is) it does not sound as if you removed python,
    but that you remove something with a graphical user interface which is
    related to python.
    Is it possibly python-idle which you refer to? The command to run it is
    idle.

    The main problem is that i dont find the Python icon at the program menu. So where is it, i dont get it.

    There is no python icon in the program menu.
    You have to run it in a terminal window.

    You can of course create a shortcut in the menu (right-click on the Program menu's icon and select menu editor) or on the desktop. You should enable "Run in a terminal" then I guess.

    But you could also install an IDE for python like "eric" (included in the standard repo), this has an icon in the program menu...

    Thanks, yes i find "eric". So run this instead, looks better and more like Netbeans.

    Please next time tell more exactly what your problem is. You should not assume that all other people are doing what you do in the same way.
    You never talked about an icon that was lost. You did not even tell you use a desktop environment, let alone which one.
