The main issue with installing Rstudio using the provided installer is that opensuse no longer ships with gstreamer 0.1. Since the version of Rstudio provided for opensuse relies on this outdated version, the install will always fail.
However, there is a solution to this problem which involves downloading an rstudio deb file for a version of debian/ubuntu that uses gstreamer 1.0.
wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/utilities/openSUSE_Factory/x86_64/alien-8.88-3.29.x86_64.rpm sudo zypper install alien-8.88-3.29.x86_64.rpm sudo zypper install rpm-build
Or, to be more secure, visit the one click install page for the alien package at [https://software.opensuse.org/package/alien](https://software.opensuse.org/package/alien), click “Show Experimental Packages”, and click the 1 Click Install button under the utilities package.
You may get a question regarding what to do about the lack of GPG keys if you do not do the 1 Click Install method. Type
i in the terminal when prompted to ignore the missing gpg key.
sudo alien -r rstudio-xenial-1.1.463-amd.deb sudo zypper in rstudio-1.1.463-2.x86_64.rpm
