Just upgraded to 13.1.
Iphone 4S with iOS 7 , and connection sharing via usb is turned on.
In 12.2, when i connected the iphone via usb to my laptop, i had only one new device notification.
And i just had to go in the network manager applet to configure a new wired connection. And it worked perfectly out of the box !
I just had to confirm on the iphone that i trust this computer with a dedicated notification/check box that appeared automatically on the iphone, when i plugged in the usb iphone cable to the computer.
Without any problem, without any file editing, without any field to fill, without any box to check somewhere in a hidden window of kde…
In 13.1, when i connect the iphone via usb to my laptop, there are many new device notifications. 5 of them to be accurate :
1 for the network interface + 4 for the camera !
Don’t know why, but i think this is the origin of the problem. Because then, it is impossible to do anything. The iphone keeps asking if i can trust this computer on and on : i mean, on the iphone, if i confirm that i trust this computer, it asks me again, and again and again… Endlessly.
Therefore, i cannot do any iphone tethering via usb to connect to the internet with shared connection of the iphone.
The problem comes from opensuse 13.1 since it worked perfectly a few days ago on opensuse 12.2.
I suppose it’s a problem with the device notifier, or with the background program, hidden behind and whose name i don’t know.
I went into the device notifier settings and tried to tweak some things but i don’t understand what it talks about. And there are some settings that can’t be erased.
I need this iphone internet connection via usb to work during my travelling hours.
And yes, i know i can connect via wifi but i don’t want it because it kills the iphone battery dramatically quick.
Moreover, i need to download iphone photos/videos via usb and i can’t do it anymore because of this device notifier stuttering.
This is a regression and i am sure there is a simple way to avoid/repair it.
Thanks for your help.
