    Default Picture of the day will not load

    Some how I broke something in KDE4 fixing Amarok. There is a setting for the desktop wallpaper called picture of the day. I enjoy the Astronomy Picture of the Day source. I had this problem once before and had to do a clean reinstall to fix it. I am hoping someone can help me solve this so I don't have to reinstall Suse again.

    Can not imagine what you did fixing Amarok that would break Picture of the day.

    Did you change repos? Maybe you have mixed packages now?

    show zypper lr -d

    Thanks for your help. I had to reload zypper because the console did not recognise it.
    One thing I would like to know, is there any way I can save my repository list and write it into my re-installation? This would greatly speed up the re-installation process.

    IT IS FIXED, THANK YOU. Looks like zypper was corrupted. No idea how that happened, but it makes sense. KDE4 Plasm Desktop Shell Wallpaper "picture of the day" probably uses zypper to download it.

    I don't know what you mean with "zypper was corrupted", but the "picture of the day" wallpaper definitely does not use zypper at all.

    Might have been some intermittent connection problem, or something like that.
    But then, your problem description was not very detailed either...

    Anyway, your repo list is bound to cause problems, especially with multimedia.
    Packman and the VLC repo are incompatible, you should not have both.
    So remove repo #3 and #21, everything that's in VideoLAN is in Packman too.

    The multimedia libs repo can cause problems too, as it may contain newer versions of multimedia stuff than Packman, but it only contains crippled ones. So you should at least know what you are doing when using it, which apparently you don't.

    And #1 is not really supported for 13.2, it contains the latest KF5 based (i.e. "KDE5") application versions where available. And at least some of them would also need the additional KDE:Frameworks5 and KDE:Qt5 repos.
    Again, you should probably only use that if you know what you are doing.
    This could likely cause KDE related problems...
