More Multi-Media Considerations
Flash Player should be installed by default if you used the DVD. The CD however does not have it. Though following install from either medium you should have the default repositories in your list. In which case install is as simple as opening a terminal – go su (and enter password) – then do:
zypper in flash-player
or Use Yast Software Management and search as shown here:
k3b is the KDE burning/ripping application for optical media (cd/dvd). Install from the Packman repository as seen in this screen from Software Management, notice the filter is set to Repositories and Packman is selected. Scroll down to k3b and check as shown. A KDE install would normally see k3b installed but not the k3b-codecs. Where k3b is already installed but is showing in blue or red text in the Packman filter, check the versions tab in Yast and make sure you have Packman radio button.
[EDIT] In 11.2 it is now easier to make sure all your multi-media is from Packman with this feature: http://www.imagebam.com/image/6b67e954459645
Is the default kde media player and it has to be said: Is by far the best there is. At the time of writing this (Using openSUSE 11.1 and KDE 4.2.1) I am using amarok2 from kde4 and it works just fine. Here is a screen of it in Yast, notice too the list contains 'amarok-packman and ‘amarok-xine’ which together are the alternative option, both come from Packman repo.
The older 1.4 ver of amarok is perfectly OK, but you must use the Packman versions quoted above.
