ymp association lost during upgrade

I’m new so I am sure there is an easy answer to this.

Just allowed a whole bunch of automatic upgrades and once done needed to reinstall my NVIDIA driver. I went to click on the “one click install” as I had done previously and the OS no longer recognises ymp extension so it just treats the file as something to download.

Of course this bring up another issue, that being why didn’t my driver remain as I wanted it, but I’ll deal with that later. Right now I just want to get the ymp association back.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

If you like to install the Nvidia driver just add to you’re Software Repositories download.Nvidia.com/opensuse11.0 and yast will take care of the rest .
Anyhow it works for me

Why did the driver get lost? Was it removed at all? Seems pretty funny to me.

I assumed it got lost because my display behaving badly but my custom settings for the monitor had not changed. That is, it didn’t seem to be a config issue. However, when I looked at my monitor settings and then “finished” it resaved the settings and after a restart the driver was working properly again. So, I guess there was some setting that got changed during the updates even though I couldn’t see them.

However, that is not the issue I asked about. Can someone please tell me how to get the association working so that that “1 click” works again - ymp association. I don’t need it right now but it’s broken and I would like it not so.

Is the package ‘yast2-metapackage-handler’ still installed? In what context do you click the .ymps? You can set associations to applications with each browser / Desktop Environment (depending on which one you use).

Yep, it is still installed and I am using gnome.

Can you tell me how would I set this association?
