Installation - Goggles Music Manager:
OpenSUSE packages are provided by the PackMan project.
After successful installation you can find  Goggles Music Manager
Application → Multimedia → Jukebox Goggles Music Manager
The first time you start Goggles Music Manager, it will come up with a empty song database. In order to enjoy your music collection you first need to fill up the song database.

To add songs to the database, open up the Music menu and select "Import Folders". It will pop a dialog asking you to select from which directory you like to add songs from.

Once you press "Ok", Goggles Music Manager will add all Ogg Vorbis files located in the chosen directories and its subdirectories. Note this may take a while when you a have huge collection of songs. You only need to do this once. If you want to add new songs to the database use the "import" command in the Music menu.

If everything was successful, the database should have been filled up. Select any genre, then artist, and finally select the album and double click on the song you want to listen to.
