i installed smeegol out of curiosity. and i am planning on keeping it installed as a alternative desktop. so “get rid of smeegol” is not an acceptable answer to my question.
my question is also not so much about how can i turn this behaviour off but i wanna understand whats going on.
here it is:
when i log out of kde and start smeegol i am in offline mode per default. now thats unconfortable but i can live with it. what is however very weired and this is what the question is all about: when i leave smeegol with
and i start kde again my network manager doesnt start properly. i tried switching to traditional and switching back. still not working
i tried killing the processes and restarting them
still not working.
i tried restarting my hole pc (i know stupid but it was a desperate move)
still not working
i tried a dozen other things that are even more desperate
the only thing that got my network working again was starting smeegol again and switching to online mode
then ctrl + alt + backspace
and back into kde
suddenly i am online again
this is confusing
how can smeegol **** my network manager up that hard that even a restart wont get it connected.
i apprechiate your help
but please keep to the particular question
