With OpenSuse it wasn't quite that simple. The plugin manager exists 
there, sure. However OMEMO couldn't be activated because there was 
always something missing.

I installed more like 6 oder 7 dependencies, most of which were not in 
the standard OpenSuse package sources - or were the wrong version (i.e. 
Python 3.4 and not 2.7). The Installation under Windows was relatively 
painless (if you don't count the Python installation itself). But I 
currently do not know if OMEMO is actually working or now.

The fact that the documentation isn't really all that helpful is a 
little annoying but it's something you learn to live with.
