On the page


it saies

  md5 checksum is still the most commonly used checksum. Many ISO burners display  it right before burning

Clicking on the link md5 one gets the page


which displays the checksum. I personally download to a file which is shown in the file manager krusader. krusader is able to verify the checksum provided there is a .md5 file somewhere. So I copied the content of the md5 file to a new txt file, saved that, and finally startet the verification process.
Things would be easier if clicking on md5 would lead directly to the md5 _file_ which could then be used for the verification. So I suggest having the download page changed accordinly for 13.2.

In closing I would like to thank you for the work done for us users.

No idea why this feature request regarding software.opensuse.org was assigned to KDE-Maintainers

I fear that this was also not the correct component/assignee.
