Lightbulb KPPP location in mandrake 9.1


Dear Group,
After installing Mandrake 9.1, everything seems fine except i can't seem to locate KPPP dialer. In 9.0 i have no problem locating it in the regular menus under networking. Mandrake 9.1 seems to have moved it somewhere. Any ideas? Forgive the dumb question as i'm trying to kill off windows and migrate to Linux forever. Thanks !!!!

Install it off the cds via the Install Software option. Then maybe use MenuDrake to add it to the menus.

I think you're right about it being on the third cd. I seem to remember other people having the same problem in the mandrake forum. If you don't have the third CD you can always go to the easy urpmi site - http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon/ - find a mirror near you under the "main" section and grab the kde-network, and kppp rpms and install those and you've got kppp.

my own experience is that kppp does not appear in the menu on the first reboot but,if you configured the network during setup then kppp does appear if you type kppp at the command prompt

thereafter it appears in the menu

don't understand for a minute why this is so

however
if you dont configure the network during setup then kppp has to be added after

type:

locate kppp

See if there is a location as something like /usr/local/kde/bin/kppp or /usr/kde/bin or /opt/kde/bin (i'm not sure where mandrake puts it), if not, you should get the kde network package for the kde and mandrake version that you have, and just install it.

Hi All,

I have the similar problem:
I type kppp at command prompt, it said "No such file or directory"
then I typed rpm -q kppp as suggested in some forum (searched thru Google), it returned a message that kppp package is not installed. I searched all 3 of my Mandrake 9.1 CDs for kppp, but its not to be found. How could it be missed in a distro? Is it in some other RPM? If so, pls let me know which one?

Thanks in advance,
abirla

After a fresh install of 9.1, kppp did not show up in the menus. The fix for me was to go into the Mandrake Control Center > System > Menudrake. Then configure the System and User menus by clicking the icon "Menu Style" and selecting "All Applications" (I also select the "what to do?" menu for my husband and guest accounts. Save and exit.
After that, kppp shows up in the Networking > Remote Access section of the menu.

HTH,
