    Default opensuse-community.org links not working

    I am trying to install codecs using opensuse-community.org
    But links to KDE Codecs, GNOME Codecs, NVIDIA Graphics Card Driver do not work.

    Where to report a bug?

    Hi
    For what openSUSE Release? There have been some issues with that third party site, AFAIK see here instead: https://en.opensuse.org/Additional_package_repositories

    My problem may be the same as the one e_dimas reports. When I go to https://opensuse-community.org/index.html and click on the "1-click install" button for KDE and let Yast 1-click install open the file, Yast give me a dialog with "Installation not Possible" and "The install link or file you opened does not contain instructions for openSUSE Leap 15.2." as messages. I am running a brand-new Leap 15.2 installation and using Firefox. When I look at the 1-click file with Kate, it contains nothing but "codecs-kde.ymp". For yucks, I tried the button for Gnome, and received the same Yast messages. Thanks in advance for your time.

    Hi Bill
    I understand, but since it's a third party site (and not part of the openSUSE infrastructure), not sure what your expectation is?

    See https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00067.html

    Well, you answered one of my questions: who do I report a bug on the site to? Not here, I guess. I just clicked the "Forums" link at the bottom of the page ended up here.

    For those who find themselves here, I got it to work by manually going to https://opensuse-community.org/codecs-kde.ymp. The links behind the 1-Click buttons are broken.

    Hi
    I've sent an email to the content owner to see if it can be fixed (and also asked for a email contact link on the page for issues).

    Should be fixed now so it works in Firefox at least. Thanks for reporting.

    Still need to figure out why it won't work in Chromium.
    See http://opensuse-guide.org
