> You have misconfigured GiP somehow. /usr/share/ffmpeg will never be the location of your ffmpeg binary. It is a folder that contains shared data for ffmpeg, such as preset files. No surprise that GiP can't launch a folder. Use /usr/bin/ffmpeg, though that should already in in $PATH and thus no need to configure GiP explicitly.
Quite so.  What I can't work out is how to change that.  I note other 
openSUSE users don't have this problem, but I did try another 
installation of GIP on another openSUSe box here and got the same 
result, go figure.  Same repo same set up both on leap42.2.
