There are a number of issues with ThinLinc 4.10 on SUSE 15 which will
be addressed in ThinLinc 4.10.1 which is due for release very soon. The
Platform Specific Notes are written with ThinLinc 4.10.1 in
consideration. While we haven't tested openSUSE Leap I suspect that
ThinLinc 4.10.1 will work well since it should be quite close to SUSE.

Getting started on workarounds for ThinLinc 4.10 does not seem
worthwhile now that we're close to releasing official fixes. Stay tuned
in the upcoming days.

The note you see on our website is not meant to be directed at
openSUSE. The text only mentions SUSE Linux Enterprise 15. Or are you
referring to the title? I think the idea is that we can write notes for
both SUSE and openSUSE on that page, however currently there are no
notes for openSUSE. Apologies for the confusion.
