    Default If you have problems with knetworkmanager in 11.4

    An unknown problem with NetworkManager-KDE, aka knetworkmanager, will sometimes
    disable wireless even when 'rfkill list' shows no block. My "fix" for this is to
    create a small script to stop and re-start knetworkmanager. To date, this has
    worked every time.

    The script has the following content:

    # Restart knetworkmanager to re-enable wireless
    killproc knetworkmanager
    knetworkmanager > /dev/null 2>&1 &
    Put the above information in a file named ~/restart_knetworkmanager, then issue
    the command

    chmod a+x ~/restart_knetmanager
    That makes it executable, When you get "Enable wireless" grayed out and it is
    not caused by any rfkill switch, then enter the command '~/restart_knetworkmanager'.

    Very nice lwfinger, thanks for the script. By the way, if you place the script into ~/bin, then you can run it as just restart_knetworkmanager. Anyway thanks very much.

    Thank You,
