    Well, the package management is trying to install the medium you installed from as package source.
    Either insert it again, or remove/disable that with "zypper rr"/"zypper mr -d" or YaST->Software Repositories.

    This is not specific to the fetchmsttfonts package though, you should get the same error when tring to install anything else as well.

    If removing/disabling the installation medium doesn't help, please post your repo list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Maybe you miss the standard online repos?

    Yes, remove/disable number #21.
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr 21
    Those plaindir repos for the fglrx driver can/should be removed as well, you might want to add the standard fglrx repo though: (the driver is available there fro 13.2 since yesterday)
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr 15 16 17 18 19
    sudo zypper ar -f http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/openSUSE_13.2/ fglrx
    And your update repos have auto-refresh _disabled_! This is not advisable.
    Turn it on again:
    Code:
    sudo zypper md -r 2 14
    To be sure run "sudo zypper ref" manually to refresh your repos and it should work.

    Thank you very much, you've been utmost helpfull. Like you mentioned , i had problem also with other installations and updates. After doing what you suggested repositories refresh without error messages and i succesfully installed the fonts. I'm still in a process of learning openSUSE basics (changed previous linux distros to 13.2 openSUSE xfce) and enjoy it a lot! So i thank you one more time for your time and effort.
