 kubuntu problems

 
 by Knome on: Jun 30 2005
 
Score 50%

Hi, first off, thanks for this great app.

I compiled it and installed it on kubuntu without an issue.
However, I'm having one problem.

I normally am connected via a router and so setup my eth0 to use the default route 192.168.0.1

Now, if I use knet, I can connect without a problem, however, the default route stays the same, so that I can't really use my dsl-connection until I run "route add default dev ppp0" as root.

This of course somehow defeats the purpose of knet, as I want to use it in the first place to get away from having to use the command line when connecting to dsl.

Any ideas how this issue could be resolved?

Currently, router support is in its early stages in KNet because I do not have a router to test it with. However, if you're able to work with me a little to add the support you need, I will certainly do so. Please let me know.. I am working hard to get another release out soon, and it would be good to include this in the next release.

same problem, but I do not use a router. See my rote before connecting:

192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default . 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

(192.168.2.1 is a dsl-router which is not in use=acts as a switch only)

route after I am connected with Knet:

217.0.116.49 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

Default route is 192.168.2.1 but should be 217.0.116.49 (my ISP)

Any idea?

 user can't connect

I can't connect with my DSL (pppoe) link as a normal user. But when I login as root, I can connect. What configurations do I have to make in order to make normal user connect?

I downloaded a debian package and installed it. Anything wrong with the package itself?


the following is the error messages:

it looks like that the debian package does not give the correct permissions to the knet files to make it work. Make sure the Knet binary is SETUID. You can do this from the command line in the directory where knet is installed: chmod +4755 knet

I hope this helps.

I have compiled knet from the sources and use kubuntu. I did the chmod
-rwsrws--x 1 root root 597693 2005-09-25 23:41 knet

I can launch Knet but when connecting, there is this error:

 KNet crashes

I am a Slackware user.
After upgrading to Slack 10.2 (kde 3.4.2 - ppp-2.4.4b1 - rp-pppoe-3.6 - tcpip-0.17) Kdsl stops working.
Looking for a newer version I discovered KNet.

I compiled and installed it but when i click on DLS button (after entering Setup form) the application crashes. Any other button seems to work correctly.

This in the backtrace:

Sorry!

KNet (and Kdsl too) doesn't work with ppp-2.4.4b1.

Rolling back to ppp-2.4.3 everything works fine!

News:

if you want to use ppp-2.4.4b1 just make a symlink in /usr/lib/pppd called 2.4.4 pointing the directory 2.4.4b1

Works great on CentOS 4.2.

Thank you very much. I live in India where BSNL is one of the leading DSL service provider. KNet just works.

Why not have it in KDE main itself...

Hello, and thankyou.
Glad to hear it is working well for you. The reason I have not tried get this program included in KDE is because I simply don't have the time anymore to put a lot of effort into the program. I will port the program to KDE4 when an Alpha Release is made available, but because of my constant travelling commitments for work, I just can't be relied upon to meet KDE's release cycles.
Also, there's a lot that still needs to be done to make it work on all systems (i.e It doesnt work for everyone smoothly), so really it's not ready to be included into the KDE tree.

This looks very promising indeed, I hope it matures and becomes a "single-window" for doing any ISP/internet connection setup on KDE/Linux!

I have a couple of questions:
1) Can I have a system level knetrc for ALL the users on a particular machine?

2) How do we use the script inteface, if you could post a sample config script that has been used before, I can have a look and build more based on it.

Cheers,

hi there,
sorry for the slow reply. Firstly, at the moment, you cannot set up a general knetrc file system wide.
Secondly, the script editor is used to pass pppd scripts to pppd to establish a connection. The best way to learn how to connect using pppd from the commandline is to read its manpage. Perhaps down the line I will show some examples for it. Just haven't had much time to work on it the last 12 months.
Thankyou for the feedback

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
