It's been a while since I worked on the MP4 support actively, and as
far as I know 2.2.6 should be as good as the 2.4 series in that
regard, but please let me know with a bug report if you find a problem.

I am running openSUSE 13.2 64 bit with KDE desktop and have Easytag
version 2.2.6-8.3 from my repo site.  I have downloaded the latest
version but would appreciate some guidance on how to install.  Should I
uninstall package manager version then run installation using configure,
make, install etc?
Real beginner here so would appreciate some guidance please.

It is probably easier to grab a more recent version from openSUSE in
some way, or otherwise produce an updated package for yourself. I do
not know much about how openSUSE works in terms of release and
development branches, but I found:

This suggests that you could grab 2.4.0 or 2.4.1 from Leap or
Tumbleweed, respectively. I do not know if you have the required
versions of GLib, GTK+ and the other dependencies installed.

If you decide to build EasyTAG yourself, be aware that 2.4.0 and above
using GSettings for storing user preferences, so you may need to set
XDG_DATA_DIRS (there is a brief note about it in the README, but
please ask if you need more guidance).

Hi David,
Many thanks.  The machine I have been using is running openSUSE 13.2 for
which repo offers 2.2.6-8.3 at present.   Will use this for now as I am
in process of moving to LEAP 42.1.  Will get back to you if I have
further questions.
