    How to solve this? whenever I'm trying to open codeblocks an error....


    This error comes up whenever I'm trying to run codeblocks on opensuse..

    Another program instance is already running.
    Code::Blocks is currently configured to only allow one running instance.

    I'll be grateful with some help here because this error makes me annoyed.

    I'm assuming you don't have another instance of the program running. There is likely a lock file that the program checks on startup. If the program crashed or otherwise terminated abnormally, it may have left a stray lock file. Look in /tmp for any files with codeblocks in the filename and remove it.
