This is the script required by WiFi plasma applet. You must install it first, otherwise the wireless applet won't work
Installation instructions - README
This script is required by WiFi applet (http://bit.ly/wifi-plasmoid)
To install, issue the following command
plasmapkg -t dataengine -i wifi-engine-1.0.plasmoid

Known Bugs
-On some systems (Arch, SuSE, possibily others) you have to manually change the path to the iwconfig executable at line 40 in ~.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/pywifi-engine/contents/code/main.py
-If you note high CPU usage, edit line 19 in the above main.py, setting setMinimumPollingInterval to 333 or higher
Both these bugs will be fixed soon. Thanks for reporting them

 iwconfig and Debian

In Debian normal users have to run /sbin/iwconfig in order to use it, not only iwconfig.

Anyway thanks for the script.

 openSuSE11.3 workaround

hi, i installed your plasmoid and dataengine, but it didn't work right from the start. for opensuse (11.3) systems people have to fix the path to iwconfig. here, the correct is /usr/sbin/iwconfig. so i edited the following file:

the code now looks like this:
blob = commands.getoutput("/usr/sbin/iwconfig " + interface)

 high cpu load

have you got an idea, why the plasmoid needs so much cpu power ?

unfortunately too much, the fan of my laptop seems always busy when i run the plasmoid, that's why i can't use it.
maybe it belongs to python or qt librarys..

 Path to iwconfig and CPU usage

There's an issue with this dataengine, cause the iwconfig executable has different paths on different systems. I have been suggested to implement a "degradation strategy" looping among known locations. Unfortunately I am unable to run my plasmoid because of python scriptengine failure on my ubuntu

The CPU issue can only be related to the update frequency. Edit line 19 of ~.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids/pywifi-engine/contents/code/main.py
Change from
This should go, but I have not tested it myself

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
