wireless not working in KDE, but works in Gnome


ok, so here's the problem, as seen in my clever subject: the drivers for my laptop wireless, which are proprietary, work just fine in gnome, but for some reason the drivers dont seem to be being picked up in KDE. admittedly, i cant get a launcher, or wireless icon/indicator in kde, either. KDE 4 is a new demon to me, and i havent figured it all out yet.

any help is help, so suggest anything, in plain english because im no expert, and i admit that.

Do you have kdenetwork installed? As root (or using sudo) run "yum install kdenetwork".

I don't think you will get too much installed on Kubuntu using "yum". That is a Red Hat/Fedora package manager,

Hit Alt-F2 and type:

Code:
nm-applet
You will get applet in your tray to start your network. You could install KDENetwork with:

Code:
sudo apt-get install kdenetwork

According to http://packages.debian.org/search?su...ords=nm-applet, nm-applet is part of the package network-manager-gnome, are you sure it works in KDE, esp. KDE 4, as well?

No offence, Ledfeather, I wasn't asking you, but rather BobNutfield who recommended it.

KDE networkmanager

As was written, install KDE networkmanager. Next you may need to sudo nm-applet, then sudo nm-applet-conf. Next boot it should be in taskbar without any command line steps.
Do not expect KDE desktop to run you cellular modem like it did before KDE was improved.
Gnome still does WIFI & 3G modems well, not KDE.
