I am using Linux for 20+ years, now the second time Leap 42.2, I remember it was always a problem to get VLC and Kaffeine to run. I had to change my HD and thus renew my system.

Thus far, I have no positive results on neither one of the features.

I'm asking what I need to do to make these work.

Also - I was never able to run "Dragon - Play"

I'm happy enough to use Suse Linux but sometimes useful instructions are not easily available. The instruction with Kaffeine was "missing support"
VLC - MP$ 24h or something like that.

I will be happy to receive recommendation/instruction

Thanks
