    Default kde 4.13 network icon

    I am using opensuse 13.1 and have updated to kde 4.13 (using http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/).

    All is working fine with the exception of the taskbar network icon (bottom right of the screen). This shows a picture of a screen with a red cross in the right hand corner. The actual netork connection is wired and working fine. I am assuming that this is a hangover from the previous network connector but how do I correct it?

    Did you restart after upgrading?
    Code:
    systemctl restart network.service

    Further to the above, what does the following report about your wired connection (even thought the GUI icon is not as expected)
    Code:
    nm-tool

    Check that network manager is active
    Code:
    systemctl status NetworkManager
    If necessary, start it
    Code:
    systemctl restart NetworkManager

    Have you enabled "User controlled using NetworkManager" in YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Global?

    Thanks very much - that was it. That setting was set as 'traditional method with ifup'.

    I'm only surprised that you didn't realise it was set that way. (You mentioned that you had upgraded to KDE 4.13, and that would not have changed the setting by itself , so you must have been using 'ifup' previously.)

    That's why it is important to supply the complete output when given commands to execute. It would have been obvious from the first part of the output that the service was disabled.

    The desktop network icon worked fine (with ifup) with kde 4.12.4 hence my confusion. Due to the well-documented past problems with kde network manager - ifup was the recommended option.
