Tip: Add OpenSUSE Community repositories

To use OpenSUSE to a fuller experience its more or less required that you add a few third-party software repositories. These repositories provide loads more packages, as well as some non-free formats which may be of use.

To enable the Community repository starting from the Gnome desktop environment, point to Computer -> YaST -> Software -> Software Management.

Then, in the menu: Repositories -> Repository Manager. Once there hit the Add -> Community Repositories, and select:
  • Main Repository (OSS)
  • Main Repository (Non-OSS)
  • Packman
  • Main Update Repository

And we're set. Lots of goodies just zypper install away. ;)
