I have installed OpenSUSE on my laptop. I am trying to connect to my wifi. I entered my wifi password (correctly) and then it is asking for my KDE wallet password. I set the KDE password but forgot it.

Is there any way to reset it or do I have to reimage my laptop?

You can just remove the wallet instead. Next time a new password will be asked.

cd $(kde4-config --localprefix)share/apps/kwallet
mv kdewallet.kwl kdewallet.kwl.bak

(if your wallet is called kdewallet.kwl)
