    You have to give exact details of the procedure you followed and the
    exact error messages you got. We are not on your seat, we can't see what
    you do, so you have to be our eyes and tell us.

    ;-)

    If you are unable to describe it, then take a video with a camera. Or
    photos.

    At a loss on how you "tried" to install an app?????? Exactly what error do you see?

    Are you using Yast-Software management GUI, zypper command line, apper KDE installer, something else????

    quit with the comic sans
    #1 start yast go to repository management and remove the install medium (DVD or USB), next add a few of community repo's packman for multimedia and nvidia or ati for video drivers (depending on your card)
    #2 in yast go to software management and play with the options, the default is search which does not show anything unless you do a search for and a package is found, try the rpm groups ... just play with yast's options they're pretty self explenatory.
    #3 if you need some exotic app try a search here
    https://software.opensuse.org
    it indexes a lot of repositories.

    Careful. Better not till he learn the ropes: adding repositories wildly
    is one of the best ways to destroy the system.

    That looks a lot like a Gnome app that you probably started as a regular user, you need root privileges to install packages, not sure how you do that under gnome, try right-clicking on the menu and see if there is a run as root option (the kde menu has that)
    anyhow why not try yast for software management, it might not have pretty pictures but it's extremely useful


    or if you just want to install rhythmbox why not use zypper from a console
    #sudo zypper in rhythmbox

    Mmm?

    Sorry, I don't recognize this. Editor's picks? I'm very confused.

    I use YaST to select and install things. Occasionally zypper.
