Hi Eduardo,

If you install the Pitivi package offered by OpenSuse, you will have two versions of Pitivi. You can still run your bin/pitivi version, and make changes if you want.

The problem is that Pitivi needs some modules. You can install them separately, or you can install the Pitivi package offered by OpenSuse which should also install the modules it needs.

Hi Eduardo,

You can try to install the Pitivi package offered by OpenSuse (I can't tell you more, as I'm not using it). This should have the effect of installing the packages Pitivi depends on, and hopefully one of them is this xdg python module you are missing.
