Hi all,

I've a problem with NetworkManager. I think I configured everything well, as described in the Howto

My version of NM is 0.8.1-r6. :
Code:
[I] net-misc/networkmanager
     Available versions:  0.6.6 0.7.1-r6 0.7.2 0.8-r1 (~)0.8.1-r6 {avahi bluetooth connection-sharing crypt debug dhclient dhcpcd doc gnome gnutls kernel_linux nss resolvconf}                                                                                                                                           
     Installed versions:  0.8.1-r6(11:22:19 05/09/2010)(avahi dhclient dhcpcd kernel_linux resolvconf -bluetooth -connection-sharing -doc -gnutls -nss)
     Homepage:            http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
     Description:         Network configuration and management in an easy way. Desktop environment independent.



I'm using the KDE plasmoid to manage it :
Code:
[I] kde-misc/knetworkmanager
     Available versions:  (4) {M}(~)4.4.0_p20100331 [M](~)4.4.0_p20100820 **9999[1]
        {aqua consolekit debug kdeenablefinal +networkmanager wicd}
     Installed versions:  4.4.0_p20100331(4)(10:47:50 05/09/2010)(consolekit networkmanager -aqua -debug -kdeenablefinal -wicd)
     Homepage:            http://kde.org/
     Description:         KDE frontend for NetworkManager


NetworkManager starts well. But nothing appears to work in the plasmoid.

knetworkmanager gives no log when I try to launch it...

Any idea why it doesn't work ?

earendilion,

only for the case that you are using kde-4.5.1, you have to unmask and install knetworkmanager version [M](~)4.4.0_p20100820 **9999[1]
If your kde version is below, the error has to be a different one.

Regards, andy.

Some ideas from my side, to help to solve your problems using knetworkmanager in KDE.

The wiki you refer to named lots of possible use flags as options, not as a must use.
So i guess it's not a good idea to use dhclient and dhcpcd simultaneously, i think they are designed to do the same job :wink:
Otherwise it seems to that wicd is a must for wlan functionality via knetworkmanager (for me it works really great, and not buggy as the most say).
Possibly the wiki is missing some more useful hints, that was needed to get it working, at least for me.

So here's how i did it, to get it running:

I installed the following packages with these flags:
Code:

kde-misc/knetworkmanager
     Available versions:  (4) 4.4.0_p20100820!t (~)4.4.0_p20101012!t (**)9999[1]
        {aqua consolekit debug kdeenablefinal +networkmanager wicd}
     Installed versions:  9999(4)[1](17:07:09 15.09.2010)(consolekit networkmanager wicd -aqua -debug -kdeenablefinal)                                                                                                                 
     Homepage:            http://kde.org/
     Description:         KDE frontend for NetworkManager

[I] net-misc/networkmanager
     Available versions:  [M]0.6.6 [M]0.7.1-r6 [M]0.7.2 0.8-r1 (~)0.8.1-r6 {avahi bluetooth connection-sharing crypt debug dhclient dhcpcd doc gnome gnutls kernel_linux nss resolvconf}                                               
     Installed versions:  0.8.1-r6(23:08:43 24.08.2010)(bluetooth dhcpcd gnutls kernel_linux -avahi -connection-sharing -dhclient -doc -nss -resolvconf)                                                                               
     Homepage:            http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/
     Description:         Network configuration and management in an easy way. Desktop environment independent.


Code:
rc-update del net=eth0 default


for lan only follow the wiki regarding editing the /etc/conf.d/rc
if you need additional wlan functionality via knetworkmanager edit it like this:
Code:
RC_PLUG_SERVICES="!net.eth0 !net.wlan0"


What's not mentioned in the wiki, but it seems to be necessary in my case was to do:
Code:
rc-update del dhcpcd default


edit /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf (delete ifplug entries and so on)
Code:
[main]
 plugins=keyfile


Disadvantage, connection is established only after login to desktop.

Pre-condition to get wlan working is a working wlan :lol: (i guess you know what i mean)

So until now, i installed it on two pc's one with, and one without wlan, works great until today.

Hopefully it helps you to get it working too.

Much success, Andy.

I am finding the same problem. Adding the wicd USE flag gets me the wicd Network Manager, which works but is ugly and not very intuitive (to configure wireless networks, for example). But no knetworkmanager still.

Would welcome any help.

Many thanks in advance.
