    Default Apper Error - Installation Aborted by User

    I get this error when I am trying to install packages from the internet. Like for example I tried to install teamviewer yesterday on my Opensuse 13.2 KDE version. However Apper gives this error, Tried with different version of team viewer nothing worked. And after that tried to install one more rpm from internet again same problem. So I think the problem lies with Apper. Request anyone's help as to how to solve this issue. I require team viewer to be installed ASAP due to my professional requirement so any help is highly appreciated.

    The apper goes through the following stages when I click on an RPM.

    Dialogue box requesting confirmation to additional changes to be made to system --> Root Password --> Install package --> Starting to download package --> about 20% download this error message Here is the Error Message



    Thank you

    Then use any of the other tools to install packages: yast, zypper, rpm...

    There is no repo available for team viewer in Opensuse as far as I know therefore I will not be able to use Yast or Zypper since I am forced to download the RPM from teamviewer website and do manual installation

    You can do manual installations with any of the package managers.

    For instance, you can tell YaST to treat a local directory of your
    choice as a repository. You do that in YaST, "Software Repositories"
    module, Add, Local directory. Then follow your nose.

    Just place that teamviewer rpm in that directory before you run yast to
    create the local repo.

    Then use YaST or zypper to install teamviewer or anything else in that
    directory in the same way as you would any other package.

    And updates, too...


    This is not the only way, but it is the one I prefer.

    zypper can install local and remote rpm files that are not part of a repository, just execute
    sudo zypper in <path_to_downloaded_file.rpm>

    zypper will handle all needed dependencies, zypper will also give a better error log if the install fails.

    Or, if you prefer a GUI, run:
    Code:
    xdg-su -c "/sbin/yast2 sw_single <path_to_downloaded_file.rpm>"
    (or use kdesu or gnomesu if you prefer )

    You can create a .desktop file to have that available in the application menu or the "Open with" dialog too.
    See https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...13#post2677713 for how.
