where is wpa_supplicant.conf?


Where does Kubuntu 6+ store its wpa config info?

Out of the box it appeared to me that kubuntu was not set up to deal with WPA so following directions I found online I installed knetwork manager which in turn installed wpa_supplicant.

I am used to wpa_supplicant putting its config file in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf but that file does not exist on my system (yet I know wpa is working somehow as I now have my home network working via the knetworkmanager GUI). Trying "locate wpa" turned up nothing that looked anything at all like the wpa config file I am used to.

So can anyone tell me how/where wpa config is being handled here?

Thank you,

Robert

The knetworkmanager GUI runs in user space. It can't store it's settings anywhere outside your home directory. Try looking in the .kde directory in your user's home directory for a knetworkmanager rc file.

The /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file is used when you have a single system-wide configuration which applies to every user on the box.
