Installing KOReader on openSUSE Tumbleweed without using Flatpak

I’m trying to install the KOReader e-book reader application on my openSUSE Tumbleweed system, but I don’t want to use the Flatpak version. Is there a way to install KOReader from native packages or by building it from source on openSUSE Tumbleweed?

I’ve tried searching the official openSUSE repositories, but I couldn’t find KOReader listed. I’m open to either using a third-party repository or building KOReader from source if there are instructions available.

My main requirement is to avoid using Flatpak, as I prefer to use native packages when possible. Can someone please guide me on how to get KOReader installed on openSUSE Tumbleweed without using Flatpak?

Please let me know if you need any other details regarding my system or the specific version of KOReader I’m trying to install.
