!!! KWireless renamed to KWlanInfo !!!
A renaming of kwireless was necessary to avoid an name conflict with kdenetwork3-kwireless.

KWlanInfo provides some information about wlan interfaces.

It's a kicker applet and so you must start it with a right click on a empty space in the kicker panel and then add it. At time it only works proper, if the wlan interface is set to "managed" mode (Access point).

Meanwhile it's tested with many wlan cards and distributions, but some wlan drivers do not set wlan statistics proper and so you get wrong data displayed.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
KWireless renamed because there's a conflict with a standard kwireless-applet in KDE. The new name is now KWlanInfo

- Opening info window does not appear in taskbar
- Min/Max indicators on bars in info window to see best and worst values of a connection
- Tooltip window for each bar shows full bar name and level (usefull if bar text to small or truncated)

Errors removed:
- Header files missing on some systems
- Nickname and ESSID on some systems not correctly displayed or kwlaninfo crashed

Error removed:
- Nickname and ESSID sometimes not updated

Errors removed:
- Header file error (wireless.h not found on some systems)
- Bars in info window have now the same colors like bars in applet

Behavior improved:
- info window on mouse over event now always on top
- if text to big for bar view, it will be truncated and not removed like in older versions

Reimplementation of some code:
There are no longer depencies to any extern files or programs (e.g. /proc/net/wireless, ifconfig ...).

Some compilation errors, program crashes on newer systems (KDE 3.2 + gcc 3.3) removed. Sorry, inadvertance of the programmer ;-)).

All regular expressions in QString changed to standard string functions, so you should be able to compile kwlaninfo with Qt >= 3.x
Following bug in KDE-3.2 fixed: info window shown in klwaninfo applet widget

Size of kwlaninfo now configurable. You can choose following modes (preferences dialog):
normal: ratio height:width = 1:2
condensed: ratio height:width = 1:1
ultra condensed: ratio height:width = 2:1

You can now choose when info bar shall be visible. Following modes are availible (preferences dialog):
Mouseover: info bar will be visible if you move mouse pointer over kwlaninfo
Double Click: info bar is visible on a double click on kwlaninfo
(in both modes info bar is hidden if mouse pointer leaves kwlaninfo)

infobar shows graphical signal strength too

bar text will be removed if it's to big for the view

type selection in preferences dialog removed

KWlanInfo applet still runs even of missing or removing wlan card.
In this case it displays an error and in a tooltip (mouse over kwlaninfo applet) it shows an error message.
If card will be inserted it shows the normal bar view again.

Redesign of the source code
IP address in info window added
Danish translation added (thanks to the translator "Frederik Dannemare")

Compiling error using qt version < 3.2 removed
Compiling of kwireless requires now only qt version >= 3.1

Info window shows now wlan settings like ESSID, Access Point ...
German translation included.
Following bug removed:
The info window was possibly not displayed correct (out of screen), if kicker panel or kwireless changed their position. Now the position of info window is correctly calculated.

An error occurs while opening preferences in Version 0.6. Now opening preferences works correct.
Further you need Qt Version 3.2.3 or higher.

"Type" in preferences dialog is reserved for future use.
Customizing of kwireless improved (see preferences dialog).
Following features added:
- setting of font and font color
- setting own bar colors for different levels.
- setting level values for changing the bar colors

Calculation of bar text size improved. On mouseEnter event a info window is shown.

While setting up preferences first time the "Procfile" value was empty. Now it's initial value is set to "/proc/net/wireless"

Please include the two bold lines into kwlaninfo.cpp and try again.

#include "kwlaninfo.h"
#include "about.h"
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <math.h>

KWlanInfo::KWlanInfo(const QString& configFile, Type type, int actions, QWidget *parent, const char *name)
: KPanelApplet(configFile, type, actions, parent, name)

trying to configure on Mandrake 10.1, KDE3.2.3 (generic Mandrake 10.1 OE) and get the following make error with and without specifying --prefix

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

What is the Mandrake prefix anyway? I tried /usr/local/kde, but it still failed.

You must install X sources from your distribution.

 Wrong info

Info is displayed correctly only the first time I move the mouse pointer over the applet. The second time, the nickname and the essid are not correctly displayed.

kwlaninfo-0.9.4 (compiled from source)

More precisely: essid is truncated to the first character, and the nickname is empty.

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.
