Usually the package manager takes care of installing the depending packages automatically but since Suse doesn't use the DEB packaging you have to handle this manually. If the libraries are not available in the Suse's package repository your options are either to find the binary package from some other location or compile the missing library yourself from the sources. I don't have any experience in OpenSuse so I don't know how easy it is to install packages outside Yast.

Thanks again and I do understand.

FYI: openSUSE is not a Debian distribution, it is GRUB distribution. So DEB packages will not work, YaST cannot install them.

Did some research with the help of openSUSE Forums.

The files Rainlendar (non-Debian package) has trouble with are NOT actual libraries, they are Linux Shortcuts (have the shortcut-arrow icon) to libraries.

The files do exist, but Rainlendar dose not handle them properly. The shortcuts point to the actual library file, with all the version info.

SUGGESTION: Rainlendar developers need to make an RPM for Rainlendar. Properly configured of course, since non-Debian Linux (that I know of) can install from an RPM. They run just like a DEB package.
