yast2-gtk is shipped by opensuse and can thus be installed by issuing:
sudo zypper install yast2-gtk
If you'd like to try the development version:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:libyui/libyui-gtk.git cd libyui-gtk make && sudo make install
You might be required to install the dependencies as specified by the README file. Don't be afraid of installing it; as a mere plugin, the install procedure involves only the copy of a file to your system.
