getting errors trying to uninstall anything:

Installing packages seems to work; but getting errors trying to uninstall anything:

Are you using the gtk+ ui of yast? If so, perhaps temporarily try using the qt version instead. I have had this issue with yast2 gtk before, though for some reason it has not happened for a while. Here is a bug report on the issue. You might try using the debugging method shown there to acquire a log.

To install yast2-qt: First remove** yast2-control-center-gnome** and yast2-gtk. Then install yast2-control-center-qt, yast2-qt, and yast2-qt-pkg.

I’m running xfce (only), so yes, gtk is the default. I have figured-out the ncurces installer…but it’s not exactly pretty.

I’ll see how much overhead I’d need to run the qt version.


I doubt there would be much if any. Qt4 is more than likely already installed. It does not require KDE to be used, so no horrid dependencies. :slight_smile:

I have been using the gtk frontend lately with no issues though, so I am not sure why I did indeed have this problem before and if it is fixed or not on my system.

Yes this does happen for me too from time to time on GTK. I have found QT version too complex to my tastes :frowning:
Confused me a lot.When i re-open it generally works :slight_smile: I hope they fix this issue by the time 12.3 comes out.
you can try using zypper

zypper rm <packageName>
