    Only as root can I connect to WLAN


    Hello,

    I looked around a little but couldn't find anything on this.
    I deleted my wireless network under my normal login for some reason I cannot now remember and it doesn't see it if i try to conect to a new connection.
    I can still connect when I login as root. I shouldn't do this I know but how do I see the network as a normal user? i created a new normal account but it didn't see it either. I only see it as root. This is using suse 11.2 kde and with KNetworkManager.
    Do I have to add some permissions to other users? how?
    Thanks
    Julian

    How are you managing your network - with ifup or network manager?
    If network manager, edit the connections and passwords and then make sure you have clicked the 'available for all users'.
    If you use ifup, there shouldn't be a problem.

    thanks

    Hello,

    Thanks for the answer.

    Was using KNetworkManager but flipped to ifup and works without a problem.
    Will be staying away from KNetworkManager and will watch K... ie any K..apps
    Thanks
