Oh, sorry, I was a bit too brief?

First, open a Terminal window. Then, type in the following commands (assuming Kobo Touch, for Kobo WiFi the file name is kobo-desktop-older.deb):

wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2183775/kobo-desktop.deb
ar -x kobo-desktop.deb
ls

You should have these files in front of you now:

control.tar.gz
data.tar.gz
debian-binary
kobo-desktop.deb

Ignore all but the data.tar.gz. Become super-user:
su
(enter your root password here)
cat data.tar.gz | (cd /; tar -zxvpPf - )

Test if you are missing any libraries:

ldd /usr/local/Kobo/Kobo | grep found

If you get the following three lines:
libQtSolutions_SingleApplication-2.6.so.1 => not found
libQtSolutions_IOCompressor-2.3.so.1 => not found
libnickel.so.1 => not found
you are done, if you have OTHER lines with a "not found" message, you may need to use YaST to bring those libraries in.

exit

Now you are back to being a regular user, so try running the program

/usr/bin/Kobo

If it all works as it should, add a shortcut to your desktop which uses the above command.

Cheers.
