    Default Knetworkmanager in KDE4's panel


    Hello

    How do I arrange for the Knetworkmanager icon to appear by default
    (each time I boot) in the panel in KDE4 openSUSE 11.1?

    Thanks
    Swerdna

    Have you tried adding it to autostart via

    system settings (advanced) > autostart (add program)

    Maybe that will do it.

    It appears by default for me with the default install. I had to change
    the system tray settings to hide it for me.

    I hadn't tried that -- and it works
    Thank you

    I feel like a dolt. I've got the exact same system, and the exact same
    question, and I can't find Systems Settings or Autostart.

    I have a brand-new, freshly installed OpenSuse 11.1 system. My laptop
    uses the notorious Broadcom-based TrueMobile 1300 wifi card, and so the
    wireless didn't work immediately after I'd installed OpenSuse.

    While figuring out how to get the wireless working properly, I removed
    KNetwork Manager in favor of ifup/ifdown. Ultimately I switched back to
    KNetworkManager, and everything works perfectly now, except that
    KNetworkManager doesn't start automatically. Rather, after I log in I
    must find it in the menu and launch it.

    I'd like KNetworkManager to launch automatically when I log in.

    The system runs OS11.1, and KDE 4. I cannot find System Settings or
    Autostart. I've entered each of those in the search field on the menu
    and come up empty. I've run Yast, and the closest thing I find there is
    system services and sysconfig editors, neither of which is appropriate
    for this.

    What obvious thing am I missing?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Wow! I'd never even noticed the Advanced tab, and I live for those sorts
    of things.

    Thanks, that was exactly it.

    Sorry. I'm a bit of a newbie. What is the path for Knetworkmanager? I
    keep coming up with something that isn't executable.

    I'm trying to get knetworkmanager to automatically start on boot. I
    followed the sequence:
    start menu-->Configure Desktop-->Advanced (tab)-->Autostart
    knetworkmanager isn't one of the programs in the pop up window. So, I'm
    attempting to give it a path name. I tried finding the path with a file
    search, but after 15 minutes of searching, I gave up. Any help would
    appreciated.
