    Kaffein?


    I now have Open Suse 12.1 and Kaffein is not installed,
    for legal reasons. The link I am directed to tells me how to
    install it, supposedly with an easy 1-click operation, but
    when I do this, I end up with the message that this is not
    available for 12.1. Will it be some time, or am I doing
    something wrong here? Is there perhaps some other
    software I can install, that allows me to watch DVDs on
    my laptop?

    Kaffeine will not typically have all multimedia codecs installed by default. That much is definite. A fully loaded version is available. Is this the link you followed?
    I'm not running OpenSUSE, so can't check it fully. But when I click the 1-click button, it offers to save a file for me.
    If that fails, then you can always do a manual install.

    No, the message sent me to a site ending with Legal_Matters. I'll try the one
    you suggest, thanks.

    OK, I went there, clicked on "1-click" and downloaded a file called
    Kaffein.ymp. What do I do now?

    Not being a Suse user, I can only help feel through this.
    You should be able to open Yast and install there, by clicking on the file you just downloaded.
