    Default No wireless networking and no NetworkManager app

    Just installed 11.2 Milestone 8 on a Thinkpad T61p.
    Wireless networking does not work. (Wired networking worked out of the box.)
    When I use KMenu to open NetworkManager, nothing happens - no application opens up.
    What should I try next?
    (Yast tells me to use NetworkManager.)

    Network Manager should be residing in your systray. Click it and go to 'New Connection'.
    Fill in the details as necessary in each section, choose 'Connect Automatically' Save and Connect.

    When you open New Connection you should see available stations within range:

    Depending on what version of the Manager you have it may look different:

    Where do I find "new connection"? (Sorry, noob here.)

    And shouldn't the NetworkManager app come up?

    NetworkManager is installed. It shows the latest version from vendor (openSUSE). I can't paste results because OpenSUSE is running on another computer (with no working network connection).

    Re: caf4926 image above:

    Do you see the right-pointing arrow to the left of the speaker icon in caf4926's image? If you have this arrow and it's pointing to the left, click on it to expand the other applet icons.

    Is the Knetworkmanager icon visible now?

    It may in fact be this you need to do in the terminal I think:
    Code:
    rpm -qi NetworkManager-kde4
    Surely you looked under the Hide toggle?
