first off install libzvt and scrollkeeper from your disks(we will need them later for synaptic)
then install apt, apt-libs, and lua available here

the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list contains a limited default list. open it with filemanager(superuser) clear it out and paste in the first line found here
the second line (starts with rpm-src) is not normally needed. you may want to remove "suse-people" and "kernel-of-the-day" from the list, the packages in those directories are very experimental. save and close that file. open /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/gpg-checker.conf . change the first line under the comment lines to read
RPM::GPG-Check no; close that file. (the developers are getting pretty lax in signing their daily builds, this will keep synaptic from bombing out, or having to enter <filename> --no-checksig when installing some packages.

open a root term and type 'apt update' once done type 'apt install synaptic' to give you a gui package manager. apt will launch SuSEconfig and ldconfig automatically after each install, so no need to do it manually.

the the packages available for 9.1 is kind of bare compared to 9.0 but that will change over time

slight change to rshaws post
in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/gpg-checker.conf as root of course.
the default reads:
GPG::Check true;
comment it out with a leading //
add:
GPG::Check false;

RPM::GPG-Check no; didnt seem to work for me so i tried changing the true to false and it works great. I woulnt change it unless you need to.
