Thread: Use nm-applet instead of knetworkmanager in KDE3?

    Default Use nm-applet instead of knetworkmanager in KDE3?


    I have installed networkmanager-gnome in Opensuse 11/KDE3 because I like
    the list of connections it shows with just one click. How do I get
    nm-applet to start at boot, and disable knetworkmanager from starting?
    Normally I would just drag a shortcut to ~/.kde/Autostart, but nm-applet
    doesn't have a menu entry to copy.

    * 67GTA,

    uninstall knetworkmanager and log out and back in. Then launch nm-applet, log out log in. By default it should save your session including the applet.
    BTW, I found that the KDE3 knetworkmanager works for me if I use a fixed IP for the WLAN connection.

    Duh. I never thought of that. I forgot KDE3 done that. Thanks for
    jolting my brain Knetworkmanager works fine as far as connecting goes.
    I just hate having to create a new connection every time when I'm on the
    move and find a new connection. The Gnome version will show all
    available connections with one click on the networkmanager icon.
