Re: Problem launching VIPM on openSUSE 15.1
Please remember, I started with a fresh install of openSUSE 15.0, then installed VIPM. Once VIPM was installed and successfully running, only then did I upgrade to openSUSE 15.1. Whenever I installed VIPM on 15.1, I always received the error you attached.
When installing VIPM, I opened Konsole, and then switched to root using su root. From there, I installed and ran VIPM.
If you can, I would suggest reinstalling openSUSE 15.0, installing VIPM, and then upgrading to 15.1. Another option might be to downgrade to 15.0 and reinstall VIPM. However, I have not tried this, so I cannot speak to its success.
