I have just installed Opensuse 12.3 actually i have done it twice just to see if it was user related error or not.
The following problem occurs:
The Update manager tells me there’s 71 updates (or something like it) i click on that little popup, review the updates, click install… and there it comes… auth failure , it manages to do this even without asking for a password or anything, and then repeats this for about 2 - 3 times, this process will repeat from here on.
Network Management → I clicked to start it, try to view devices or anything, nothing is there nothing to click and aparently no connection.
I checked in yast, yast also says network management has control.
This all happens under the user created by the Opensuse setup,
Once i switch user and login as root, Network Management shows my wireless networks, shows my LAN connection and ofcourse updates out of the box.
I am aware that there’s aways around it not to use these guis but here’s the thing:
- I need VPN Connections to easily enable/disable
- I prefer not to get auth failure every few minutes for the rest of my life
- I prefer not to login and use root OR assign similar priveledges to my normal account thats just not logical at all.
So the question is:
How do i set the permissions so the network manager is happy?
and same goes for update manager all running by default in KDE.
Please note this is a 100% fresh system and i can simulate this on each fresh install.
