No, in openSuSe 12.2 rpm for xnconvert don't work correctly:

- no item in openSuSe menu after install;

- does not start in terminal with user privileges and reports: "Absolute path to 'xnconvert' is '/usr/sbin/xnconvert', so running it may require superuser privileges (eg. root)."

- starts as root in a terminal. But why should I convert images as root?

In Yast Software Manager I can read the comment to the package: "(Converted from a deb package by alien version 8.79ubuntu0.1.)"

Please, correct the rpm package, so it can be installed and used in OpenSuSe 12.2
