Depending on your distro, KDE's own tools may not work for you. I always got a warning in KDE the second I opened the tool. The "wicd" is the graphical tools that works.
As for command line, that is very simple for ethernet, and should be for wireless also as long as your wireless drivers are installed.
- run netconfig
- add a default gateway (via command line) and test to see if I can ping the router
- (if #2 worked) edit the configuration file for my distro to make the change permanent
Though if you're going to run wicd
it's easier to remove all specific settings and let wicd auto-detect which network you're connected to. I don't think I had to change anything
, though, because eth0 was already configured to use DHCP, which is all it actually needs.
Even if I reboot and don't go to the desktop, I find my ethernet gets its settings automatically. I'm not good at remembering details and can't remember the path to the config file...I'm not at home right now...the path is different on Slackware than other distros.
You really shouldn't have to do anything except bring eth0 up.
F.Y.I., I downloaded the latest wicd
, I did not install from the Slack DVD because the older wicd
has a bug (read that on SourceForge http://wicd.sourceforge.net/
