    Default Installing Zotero and Megasync

    I need help to install zotero and megasync on Tumbleweed. Can someone give me guidance? I'm a new user of Opensuse. For megasync I've tried using oneclick install, but it failed.

    Hi, welcome

    Could you tell us a bit more? Your desktop environment? Did the install of megasync fail, or can't you get the program to work? How far did you get in your attempts to install Zotero ?
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    as you currently don't have the mega sign key that error is to be expected you could chose ignore 'i' or you could first add the mega repo (which will import the key prior to install)
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ MEGA
    sudo zypper in megasync
    the thing is I'm pretty sure megasync will add the reposetory and if they're not the same name you'll end up with 2 mega repo's with different names both pointing to the same URL (which is not a big deal)
    the other error you got is for a nonexistent TW repo http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...ctory/snapshot looks strange to me you should remove that repo
    tell us your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    Thanks I_A. I chose ignore, it works well so far.
