Very annoying problem!

Whenever I try to install a new rpm (VirtualBox updates in the majority)
I click on install using software installer...

The software installer starts, verify dependencies then always resolves
into error and package went not installed.

The only way is to download the rpm then install it by hand.

Ubuntu is flawless on this process!

Which installer (YaST, zypper, rpm)? People on this list need to know
all of the details as we cannot "see" what you typed or clicked on.

What error? Again, we cannot "see" what you are doing.

at a guess i'd say its "apper" as on opensuse it seems to be installed by
default and i've yet to find a way to disable it in one hit. i've never got it
to get passed the dependency failure. i tend to use "zypper" which always
seems to work.

Yes by hand both "rpm -Uvh" amd "zypper in" are working.
I'm using Gnome desktop, I know apper is KDE app then I ddon't know if
your thought is right for me.

I don't know for sure, it happens with Gnome, I suppose being the
default Gnome software installer!

For you does it works? In Gnome it works?

Most of us use the default openSUSE installer, not the Gnome installer.
That is, YaST.
And of course it works.
