    Huh? In the same place as all the programs in openSUSE. You start YaST
    package manager, and seek for it there.

    But it should already be installed. Did you try? It is a command line
    program, off course.

    Help please. What program do I use to find the md5 hash of a file and where is it located.

    I found YaST but there is no program in there for calculating a file's hash. I'm not familiar with the command line.
    May I please ask for a program (graphical user interface) that will calculate and display the hash of a file? Please offer a simple solution as I'm not familiar with Linux or command lines. Thank you.

    I told you.

    Code:
    
    > cer@AmonLanc:~/Downloads2/isos> md5sum openSUSE-13.1-Rescue-CD-x86_64.iso
    > a0f1bd775ffdbf31f6c36b44a677f8fe  openSUSE-13.1-Rescue-CD-x86_64.iso
    > cer@AmonLanc:~/Downloads2/isos>
    It is a CLI, so forget the menus and the mouse. This is Linux.

    I don't know of any.

    Well, I'm sorry, but this is Linux, so you'd better get familiarized
    with the command line.

    If you do a search for "md5" on the search page, you will not find GUIs.

    Please Carlos, easy on the new people.

    ****************************************

    Click on the gecko on the lower left and find the program konsole. Once
    it starts you will be the the CLI. From there you can run the command to
    check the md5sum (hash) of what ever file you have access to.

    As Carlos pointed out learn how to use the CLI to do things as it is
    your best friend in any OS.
