The range of functions encompasses the features implemented by NetworkManager daemon. Up until now NetworkManager supports:

* Wired Ethernet Devices (IEEE 802.3)
* Wireless Ethernet Devices (IEEE 802.11): Unencrypted, WEP, WPA Personal, WPA Enterprise
* Virtual Private Network (VPN): OpenVPN, VPNC
* Dial-Up (PPP), depending on availability of distribution specific backend.


- KDE 3.5.x
- NetworkManager 0.6.x
- D-Bus
- D-Bus Qt bindings


* initial release

 connect with KWallet

Any ideas why v0.1 wouldn't want to interact with kwallet? I have a WEP network at home that works perfectly, but the WPA-ENT network at work doesn't try to work with kwallet at all.

I guess it's a bug and should be fixed.
Please file it into Bugzilla. Thanks

Im a big linux noob who need internet for his Kubuntu to learn anything!

I miss knetwork program for WPA connection from a basic cd install wtih kubuntu 6.10

I have this guide i go by https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WPAHowTo/Kubuntu#EasySteps
but as soon as i start i get the first problem.. I got no internet so no packede..

I downloaded knetworkmanager-0.1.tar.bz2 but what can i do with that when i dont know about install and where to put it for hte work!

its always the same thing. The learning curve is to high and there is almost no wins in the start. To depressing!

knetworkmanager is a very cool and useful app, Thank you!

Per this thread: http://www.mail-archive.com/networkmanager-list@gnome.org/msg05597.html

It looks like the guys (and girls?) working on NetworkManager are getting support for EAP-TTLS with inner PAP.

This support is in the unrelased 0.6.5 version, but knetworkmanager 0.1 does not currently have the options for phase2 PAP in the interface yet.

I would be HAPPY to help test.

P.S. I am able to get connected properly with this configuration using wpa_supplicant via the command line, after which I need to run dhclient to get an IP, but knetworkmanager seems to attempt inner MD5 auth which the RADIUS server rejects.

I'm exactly in the same situation you are. I need EAP-TTLS with the phase2 PAP authentication and there is no way to set these things in KNetworkManager.

Is there any plan for an updated release?

Thanks for your collaboration.

 No Interfaces found

 by daphreak on: Mar 22 2007

Hi !

I'm using a HD installation of Kanotix (basically a Debian Sid). I installed knetworkmanager with apt-get (apt-get install network-manager-kde). The version ist "0.1-4".

There were some errors, but as the README.Debian explained, adding the user to the group "netdev" solved the problem. Now I don't have any errors and knetworkmanager runs, but all it says that it doesn't find any interfaces.

My wireless card is wlan0. The README.Debian explains that it must not be listed in /etc/network/interfaces. Well, it's not.

I don't know exactly how knetworkmanager internally works. Where does it get its list of interfaces from ? And why doesn' t it show the device wlan0 ?

the command for configuring network interfaces is:
ifconfig -a
The "-a" is for listing all of them, not just the ones that are up.
As for adding interfaces for KNetworkManager to "find", you need to add the config to /etc/network/interfaces .
its in the form of:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

assuming you are not having driver issues with your wireless.

feel free to ask for clarification.

Thanks for your help, but this doesn't help.

I don't want to configure wlan0 to auto and dhcp. It's a laptop and I use it and different environments, sometimes LAN, sometimes WLAN. If I use WLAN, the network parameters (ESSID, Key, Encryption) are different. So it would just sit there when booting trying to get an address via DHCP, which it can't get before configuring those parameters. That's why I'd like to use knetworkmanager.

Anyway, even if I configure wlan0 to auto and dhcp, it still doesn't show up in the list ("No network device found").

As the README.Debian states, it should also work if wlan0 is not in the "interfaces"-file at all.

The interface works without problems. I still use ndiswrapper, but I'm planning to upgrade the kernel sooner or later, where the driver for the bcm4318 is included. Configuring the interface using the Command line works (No Encryption/WEP/WPA).

 is this real?

 by xyzzy on: Apr 20 2007

I sure hope the 0.1 version number means this is still under development. IT HAS A LONG WAYS TO GO! Sigh... Not even close to being ready to support laptops in a mobile environment. (where EVERYTHING including computer names, domain names, user names, usage of DHCP or static IP addresses, WEP keys, routing/gateways, etc etc are subject to change) Nor does it have any way to support network connections automatically which are needed by ROOT during boot up phase. Nor does it remember wireless state info such as what type of WEP is being used (it always reverts back to passphrase when a different mode of specifying a WEP key was used to set it up.) Nor does it work with KWallet apparently to get WEP keys and other passwords for login info.. I could go on an on... this is a mess and needs some serious architecture /design work! Sorry but I guess I will have to go back to using ifup and ifdown within scripts. That is a real pain also but at least it works and I can get my laptop set up as needed in all the different network environments that I find myself using daily....

Are you sure you'v installed KNM correctly and you are not getting any of D-Bus errors?

As for me, KNM does every bit you've mentioned :)

  Wired & Wireless

 by ronfog on: Aug 10 2007

I have a dualboot Averatec 2370 notebook. Using distro SL 3.4 (SabayonLinux)
I am able to connect wireless (WEP security) without having had any problem. KNetWorkManager sees the wireless network with a good signal.

I decided to do the following:
- Connect my notebook first by wire. The wireless switch is off.
- Disconnect the notebook from the cable, turn on the wireless switch and use KNetWorkManager to get back on line.
- KNetworkmanager does not see any wireless signal.
- Go to: Connect to Other Wireless Network - I typed in the necessary info to get online (this is the same info which allows me to be wireless).
- Results: Unable to connect. The KNetworkManager window pops up - I did set the correct parameters but no connection...

What I expect is that if I switch from wired to wireless I should be able without rebooting the system to get back online.
Note: After rebooting KNetworkManager still defaults to the wired checkbox. I have to manually click on the signal bar to switch to the wireless network.

I am not completely new to Linux but I do not have extensive knowledge in Linux wireless networking. I read from several web sites but no one addresses the above issue.
Your feedback is very welcome!

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.
