    In order to see the network setup as shown there you need to install the package called plasmoid-networkmanagment which requires that you remove NetworkManager-kde4. To do this go to:

    YaST / Software / Software Managerement and search on plasmoid. When you check the package plasmoid-networkmanagment you will get an option to uninstall NetworkManager-kde4 or to not install plasmoid-networkmanagment so elect to delete the package NetworkManager-kde4. If all goes well you need to restart openSUSE to start using the new one.

    Be aware that I am using all NetworkManager files from the original openSUSE repositories. If you mix up NetworkManager versions, such as those that can be found in the GNOME or KDE specific repositories, NetworkManager can stop working properly. In general you should ONLY add in Packman to the default repositories that have been added for you when you installed openSUSE. Be for warned about this problem of mixed version of the NetworkManager.

    Thank You,

    Switching to the plasmoid for NetworkManager does not change the Network Manager configuration settings or its abilities. You would go into Manage Connections and then the Mobile Broadband settings tab. I don't use this configuration and so I am not the expert on your options within that section of NetworkManager. I would however, go here if you have not before and create a new connection and see what can be entered.

    There is no backup like that used in Windows and really, such a thing is not required. However, system backup is always a good idea. I might suggest you look at Duplicity and its GUI front end called Deja Dup. You must configure Deja Dup for where you are backing up to. I use an external hard drive myself. To install this go to:

    YaST / Software / Software Repository and search on duplicity and then install deja-dup and duplicity. You can find some more info on deja-dup here: Deja-Dup

    Sorry Stamos, but this is completely wrong. To get hardware working and available for use in applications/programs/widgets/plasmoids, the hardware needs:
    1. The correct driver/firmware to be installed. This can be a kernel that has the driver in it, or a separate package.
    As long as this has not been provided, every other effort to get the hardware working is useless.
