    Default VirtualBox installation

    Hi!
    I just installed VirtualBox by mean Yast on openSuse Leap 15. But I can find the VirtualBox icon to launch the application.
    How I can run the application?
    Thank you in advance.

    Are you able to find Virtualbox by menu item or a Desktop search?

    Most convenient way depends on the installed Desktop, which one are you running?

    Since I don't have Virtualbox installed on a KDE personally,
    I can't know for sure whether there is a bug or not, but it should be a menu item somewhere...

    1. Reboot
    Sometimes menu items aren't properly installed without a reboot.

    2. Try starting the Virtualbox Manager from the command line
    Code:
    vboxmanager
    3. Check whether virtualbox was properly installed. If you installed from openSUSE, post the results of the following so we can see it's installed
    Code:
    zypper se -i virtualbox
    4. Try "force re-installing" virtualbox. Don't forget to reboot afterwards.
    Code:
    zypper in -f virtualbox
