The default way of picking an app from the menu shows too many apps, and that's confusing to new users. Still evaluating this system, but I put it on hold when I became minty fresh.
What you need there is the "smart" package manager. Search the web for "suse smart channel" or "smart channels" and add those to your "smart" config. If you know your ways around that it will give multimedia and everything within 15 minutes after the installation. And having a lot of choice is always a good thing
