How do i perform this workaround?


As i once stated, i had problems with openSUSE. Namely, when i installed it, and tried to connect to the eduroam network via network manager, it just flitched with something red written on it, and wouldn’t work. The whole system then wouldn’t work after reboot sometimes.

Now, i found this workaround, which seems similar to my problems, but i don’t know how to apply it. Can anyone write baby steps?

I suggest (for laptops at least) auth_admin:auth_admin:yes org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.own auth_admin:auth_admin:yes org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wifi.share.protected auth_admin:auth_admin:yes auth_admin:auth_admin:yes org.freedesktop.ModemManager.Device.Control auth_admin:auth_admin:yes The last one allows the user to unlock the modem with a PIN I think Juergen’s suggestion goes too far, since that allows all logged in users to modify all users’ connections.

I don’t know how to do this exactly, but would like to try.

Thank you.

I need you to help, so i can write it down, because after the install i won’t have a working connection…


Take a look at my blog page: Trying to make NetworkManager sane in 12.2

Although that says it is for 12.2, I have also tested it on 12.1.

I plan to do more testing and come up with better recommendations (if I can) after 12.2 is released.
