kppp Doesn't Dock Into Panel After Connect
I'm running Redhat 9.0.
I am able to dial in using kppp with no problems. However, after kppp connects, it creates a tiny window containing a little 'modem and lights box' in the upper-left corner of the screen.
What I would *like* to happen after connecting is for the modem icon to appear next to the clock, as in Mandrake and Windows. Does anyone have suggestions for how to accomplish this? I have already checked the 'Dock into panel after connect' box.
BTW: I have done the following, which allowed kppp to connect w/o using the root password. The creation of a mini-window was the same before and after the change:
chmod u+s /usr/sbin/kppp
ln -s /usr/sbin/kppp /usr/bin/kppp

This is in KDE right? Coz in Flux you'll get that unless you ./configure --enable-kde to allow KDE apps to dock in to the slit.
I'm using GNOME. Can't believe I didn't mention that...
Will your fix work for GNOME as well?
....and where is the configure command located??
RedHat uses precompiled packages for it's software, and recompiling Gnome could get ugly, so no, my fix for the latest Fluxbox releases wont work for RH Gnome.
I honestly dont know if Gnome is meant to support the Kde system tray, as from the Fluxbox options I know they each have thier own standards. Maybe I should use Gnome more...
Edit: You might notice from the command that "./configure" is executing something within the current directory (aka ./). It's the standard name of the script which'll generate system specific files for you to then make and make install a package of software sources. See this LinuxAnswer. :)
Hmm, thats too bad. I was told that Redhat was favoring GNOME over KDE - it came up as the default desktop.
Is there a GNOME equivalent to kppp?
EDIT: I'm simply installing RH from disk w/o make-ing it. I *really* don't want to go down that road.
