Thread: Knetwork manager no longer workign in KDE 4.1.2

    Default Knetwork manager no longer workign in KDE 4.1.2

    After a fairly tortuous upgrade to KDE 4.1.2 I found the network manager would no longer connect to my wireless router. Whilst I could see my ssid in the knetworkmanager dialogue I found that when i clicked on it to connect, nothing happened.

    I found that removing the network manager plasmoid seems to do resolve the problem. Not sure why though! Maybe there is some sort of lock occurring?

    Anyway hope that helps anyone with similar problems.

    thanks
    Michael

    Define "remove", please. I have the same problem and I didn't find a solution (using the gnome applet now).

    Hi Uwe,

    1) go into yast
    2) go to software management
    3)use the search filer
    4) type NetworkManager-kde4 and hit enter
    5) should bring up the networkmanager-kde4 packages
    6) right click select -> all in this list -> remove
    7) hit accept


    fingers crossed it will work mate.

    cheers

    Thanks, but it didn't :-(
    nm-applet works great. I use more and more Gnome stuff on KDE4, how ugly is that?! <G>

    Hi Uwe,

    :-(

    did you make sure you had all the relevant updates to your qt libraries?
    Also you might want to move your .kde4 folder somewhere else to see if that improves things e.g. move .kde4 folder to a temp directory and then restarting kde4...although I lost a lot of my settings it actually helped to remove some of the 'funnies' I was experiencing :-)

    cheers

    Yep.

    Good idea. I'll do that once I install 11.1 Beta 3 here.

    Thanks

    I also have had problems of kde3 knetworkmanager stop working, when I've played with the kde4 networkmanager plasmoid.

    But it's important to understand that kde4 networkmanager is very young and under heavy development. And it's intended to replace kde3 knm, not supplement it.

    Same problem here. Wireless is broken using knetworkmanager. The applet sees the network as before, but when I click on the SSID the little wheel doesn't come on so it never connects.

    I did install the kde4 version with recent updates but it still didn't work. Tried uninstalling anything related to knetworkmanagerkde4 but that didn't help.

    Using Gnome for now, but I miss KDE4.1.2. Maybe this will be fixed later.

    * Psquared,

    I had the same problems you had. FYI, it seems to work flawlessly on 11.1Beta 3.
    Beta 3 is really cool, give it a try. Else you could just use the Gnome applet (nm-applet) in 11.0, which works fine even on KDE4.

    Well, I got most of 11.1 except for the main 11.1 files due to a dependency issue. Did you install from scratch or upgrade using the factory repos?

    I think there may be another repo somewhere that has the 11.1 stuff in it. There are 2 missing dependencies for me:

    I can't install Kdebase11.1-64.1i586 because of a missing file called kdetranslations.

    I can't install kdelibs 4.1.2 because I am missing shared-mime-info >=0.51

    I have all the factory repos enabled (extras, community and desktop) I also have buildservice for audio, photo, mozilla and X11/Xorg. I also have Packman.

    If anyone knows of the missing repo please post it here.

    thanks
