Hi anika.ella, Welcome to LQ. Have a read here. You'll want the User Guide in your language, Chapter 7. That should get you going.
Good luck. ;-)

Thank you - solved ! It was something with the network - I should activate in system-administration-services the net console and nrtfs services.
Now it is working (I had the same problem also on the wired net, and I solve it in the same way.
Thank you again !

well, why the network "issue" was disabled in services ? In F10 everuthing has worked instant after installation. In f12 I had to work a little in services. Why those issues was not enabled from the first beginning ?

I'm not sure what steps you took to get things working, but I believe the intent was to have NetworkManager handle all network interfaces in lieu of the older network services.
Good luck. ;-)
