Big nOOb needs help.......

I was able to install gnome onto my suse 9.1 personal.....I used the following thread:,and,yast

However, when I download rpms in gnome it tells me these is no associated application. In KDE, i click on an rpm and yast launches. How can I have the happen in gnome?

Hey man, I was having the same problem, this is the only place I found that had this post.
I also discovered a fix when playing around with associations.

When you get the message asking you to choose an application to associate it with,
you want to choose the konqueror browser that KDE uses (yes, it'll work in gnome)
if you're like me and don't want to use konqueror more than needed, just set it in the file association for rpm and then when you open them konqueror will open up automatically and give you the same window you would see to install with yast in kde

I'm at work right now and can't remember the location of the konqueror executable.-I'll post again when I get home to find it.
