when I am trying to install a RPM package I get the following error:
failed to install file: [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.w29lVZ] Repository already exists
It tried to install DBVisualizer and Adobe Reader 9 and get the same error. Just the directory is different. How do I solve this? I tried to delete the mentioned directories but I can’t find them on the file system.
Thanks for your time =)

Post the output of “zypper lr --details” between code tags (very
important!). Advanced editor, #.
My guess is you installed something by the “one click” method, and that is
a remnant. You have to remove the extra repo.

Thank you. Removing the repository solved the problem.
a “Thank You” goes a long way.
You are Very Welcome.
