Go to YaST, software install.
Make a search by checking "RPM provides".
Look for the files you need one by one, and check the package yast finds for you, then after having selected all new packages you need, install them.

Only a question because I'm interested!:
are these dependencies not resolved "automatically" when installing "skype" (...or whatever software for that matter)?

I have the impression that the OP wants these libraries because they are needed for running "skype" - and yet they are not installed even though he/she has "skype" installed.
I could be wrong here...

If you have a 32-bit machine, AFAIK all dependencies should be resolved by YaST, if you just download the RPM from skype website and installed it with YaST.

If you have a 64-bit machine (which your question suggests), you would eed to install these packages before installing skype: libqt4-32bit and libqt4-X11-32bit (because skype is 32-bit software). You can install them easily from YaST software manager.

hope this leads to a solution..

Am also struggling a bit with the pre-compiled RPM. It is a pity it doesn't get resolved automatically for the 32bit software on the 64bit OS automatically.


dependencies, skype
