In an unhappy manoeuvre I lost Networkmanager, so I can't install a Wifi connection anymore.
How can I get back a working Networkmanager?


What do you mean when you say "lost", is it closed, or disabled, or un-installed?

1.) If you press alt+f2 and type networkmanager, does that bring it back?

2.) Do you have the package NetworkManager installed? (You probably do. To make sure, try 'sudo zypper in NetworkManager' from the command line, or check through Software Management in YaST).

3.) In openSUSE you can choose to have networks managed at user level by NetworkManager, or at administrator level with ifup. If you go to YaST, open Network Settings, and click Global Options, make sure the option "User controlled with NetworkManager" is selected.

Hope this helps!

I found networkmanager back, but when I try in System>Network>Networkconnection>wireless to configure one I get from 'scan' a map without any available connections.
Did I something wrong?
