why KDE does not turn on wireless but Gnome do?
why there are differences in hardware support in openSUSE 12.1 between KDE and Gnome?
i have hp pavilion dv 2690ee notebook (more details in my signature), in KDE i can not turn on (and use) my Bluetooth and Wireless (both of them activate with one key in front of laptop) but in Gnome after activating that key, with clicking Bluetooth icon in taskbar, Bluetooth and Wireless will turn on.

why i cannot turn on (and use) Bluetooth and Wireless in KDE but i can use them in Gnome?

how can i solve this problem in KDE?

I don't know, but
  • If you are using NM, Gnome and KDE have different network manager clients, so, presumably the set up for the two clients will be different, unless you have deliberately made them the same. Have you? (And, do you use NM, WiCD or Ifup.ifdown?)
  • Do you get any error messages? In particular, you might see something in dmesg. I think NM has its own log, so a look there would also be advisable (but, I can't really give you more info on filenames, as I am using WiCD, currently - so, see if locate turns up any useful logs that you ought to be checking).

the problem has been solved
the problem solved using helps in Bugzilla: (Bug 735997 - KDEdependency to Gnome in field of bluetooth)

I added "blacklist hp-wmi" to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

and the problem solved.
