ask - running kde network manager on xfce4
 
hai, I'm using slackware 14.1, sometimes use kde4 and xfce4 for my desktop,
is it possible to run kde network manager on xfce4 desktop?
or xfce4 has its own network manager(gui) like kde?
I have trouble with connecting my laptop on network (specially wifi) when running xfce4

The "network-manager-applet" package contains "nm-applet" which is the GTK based GUI front-end to Network Manager. You should use that one in XFCE.

I'm using xfce 4.10, I've read some article that "network-manager-applet" available for xfce 4.8. so, is it compatible with my version of xfce?

okey, I've just compile nm-applet on my slackware. when I installed, I got this warning

Slackware 14.1 has XFCE 4.10 and network-manager-applet. See slackware-14.1/slackware/xap/network-manager-applet-0.9.8.4-i486-1.txz.
They will work together. No idea where you read that they would not work together, probably true for another distro?
