Old laptop back in use, i have tumbleweed on it, needed my browser installed, figured it out and wish to share the steps :)

 

Get chrome rpm https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/

 

We need to run a few simple commands to obtain keys and authenticate an rpm.

 

Open dolphin, open folder containing rpm then hit f4 to open konsole.

 

Use command below, paste it in konsole then hit enter

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

When done installing key, verify it being installed

rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-*

Now lets install google chrome.

rpm -Uvh google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

that should do it

No need for the key..Get Chrome from your link...

just use "Zypper install google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm"

 

It will error and offer abort / retry / ignore key - Press ' i ' to ignore and off it goes.

 

Did you also install Pepperpot from Yast in-case you need Flash?
