Thanks a lot. I need Skype stay in touch with my relatives. Please help.
to find out which dependencies you’re missing on your system and install them.
I don’t have access to a openSuSE desktop system atm. I’ll post packages name at later time when i’m behind an openSuSE machine.
As for reply on your pm: The bar & desktop widgets you see are E17 svn , builded with easy e17 installer. But i don’t recommend beginner openSuSE users, such as yourself, to endeavor into building svn software from source. Yes, the ‘easy’ means “easier”. Not necessary really easy from a beginner users point of view.

i installed twice, the first time as you suggested, and it seemed to work fine, but then i reinstalled using sudo for the alien command (to avoid a denied access to .gfvs) and then installed libasound2-32bit, just to avoid some annoying errors verbosed in the terminal. as i said, the first time worked, and these two additional steps might not make any difference, although it works flawlessly now.
