Alright. KDE4-NetworkManager does not work for my wireless card yet, so best bet at the moment is removing it and installing Wicd. After installing and configuring it to my needs I thought it’d be a good idea rebooting the system. Then it comes: I am asked for root permission in order to launch Wicd (maybe just the icon?) Anyway, one cool solution I found out at openSUSE’s Forums was:

  • Start a terminal and login as root.
  • Then type chkconfig wicd on.

There you go, no more root permission to start Wicd.
