OpenSUSE 13.1, NetworkManager

I'm trying to create a WPA2 network and WPA2 isn't showing up in the list when I
click on the NetworkManager icon in the lower right and select "Create New Wi-Fi
Network". I have the wpa2_supplicant packages installed. Here is a picture
showing the dialog box:

No pulldown for WPA2.

Make sure you have the link for wpa_supplicant.service in /etc/systemd/system/, and check if it is running. If not, you can start in from the command line with:

# <yournetiface> -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log

where <yournetiface> is something like 'wlp23s0'.

There are some access points that refuse to connect with NetworkManager running. See:

And see my post on the issue on 8/1:
[opensuse] 13.1 - Cannot Connect to Wireless AP w/o Killing Network Manager, resolve.conf not updating on return???
