    If this is still on 42.3 ...... It's out of maintenance. If meanwhile it's s about 15.0 or 15.1 use zypper to add the repo, then 'zypper ref' to refresh the repo and trust the key always. But ...... AFAICS a package xfce-desktop doesn't even exist. But .....
    Code:
    sudo zypper in patterns-xfce-xfce
    should pull in the xfce4 desktop environment, incl. recquirements and recommended packages.

    This is an old thread and outdated because 42.3 is no longer supported (and thus it is very probably you will not find some, or maybe all, repos that belonged to it.

    Also I dis not read the above posts, but for installing the Xfce desktop you do not need any special repo. It is on the OSS repo. YaST > Software > Software Management, from the View menu the Patterns and then scroll down to the XFCE pattern. Check and install. IMHO it will give you a rather complete Xfce desktop.

    And next time when you say something like "I still can't find the xfce-desktop package with zypper", the please show what you did and got: complete from the prompt-command line, up to and including the next prompt line, copied/pasted in the forum post between CODE tags (the # button in the tool bar of the post editor). Only when people see things, they can make useful comments on it.

    I was searching for Android-Tools and apparently they're not in the basic repositories but in some "Harware" repository, which is not listed in the OpenSuse documentation about repositories https://en.opensuse.org/Package_repositories

    The XFCE repository is listed on this page as a "semi-official repository" and I added it but I still can't find the xfce-desktop package with zypper?


    Is there some page with something like the repository tree with advices on which ones are guaranteed safe?
    Hi
    There are three, the actual release repositories (eg Leap 15.0, Leap 15.1, Tumbleweed, oss and non-oss), experimental (aka development) and community (aka home) and the search tool here (which can be out of sync at times);

    https://software.opensuse.org/package/newmoon

    Then there is the openSUSE Build Service where all the packages are built;

    https://build.opensuse.org/

    If you click the link to 'All Projects' it displays all the ones that fall under the category 'experimental' if you turn on 'Include home (community) projects', the number will increase from ~2,600+

    If the package is not in the distribution, but in your example Hardware, this is considered the development project for the package, should be fine to use, but since it's not in the release it may or may not break something, I would suggest just downloading and install in the first instance to see if it will work without any further dependencies from the hardware repository.

    For home directories, use with caution unless a forum user suggests trying it out or ask here in the forum.

    Oh, and by the way, when someone mentions a "user's" bin, they aren't talking about anything else but the "user's" bin, bud! I never mentioned anything about /usr!

    Unfortunately it's an inexplicable acquired talent. I start with https://software.opensuse.org/search, but must work hard there because the search string there might be found in as many as hundreds of non-sorted packages as sub-strings, but more often only because the actual URLs desired are hiding within the ymp glop that as often as not causes unwanted and damaging TW repos to be added to Leap installations when the sole and obvious way to proceed, "Direct Install" aka YaST 1-Click, is selected.

    The XFCE repository is listed on this page as a "semi-official repository" and I added it but I still can't find the xfce-desktop package with zypper?
    This I find to be probably the biggest weakness of openSUSE, locating, by URL, what repo, if any exists at all, contains desired software that is not in standard repos. This is largely offset by the vast assortment of software that is in the repos that zypper and yast can find, or already installed (by default).

    If enough is known in advance about what is wanted, the desired end can often, if not fairly routinely, be found perusing http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/ in a web browser. So what I usually do is see what I can find via software search above, then take that finding to /repositories.

    Is there some page with something like the repository tree with advices on which ones are guaranteed safe?
    I'm pretty sure there is at least one, which will list only four: OSS, Non-OSS, Update and Update-NonOSS, plus their source and debug relatives. It comes down to how to interpret "safe". It's these four that are subject to the full openSUSE QA process required to proffer a "guarantee".
