I'm noticing quite a concerning issue with the update I just made to 5.18.1, I've lost the permission to connect or disconnect from wireless networks, a pop-up just says org.freedesktop.NetworkManager-control request failed : not authorized

And I've got no bloody idea of how to fix that pesky error...

Anyone ?

I've noticed that Dolphin is still a little slow when working with NFS mounts. It will still freeze up for a while but seems to eventually come back where before it would sometimes freeze and never recover.

I'm still missing a lot of the KDE3 features I used to use, wish they could put some back.

Did you run slackpkg install-new ....as there is a new package NetworkManager requires: libnma-1.8.28-x86_64-1.txz

This is the NetworkManager GUI client library, which was previously
provided by network-manager-applet. It's now a standalone project, and
is required by network-manager-applet and other NetworkManager frontends.

I have a problem with Kamoso application (using latest ktown). seems it requieres wrappercamerabinsrc gstreamer component, but the slackware provided gstreamer does not have it.

The error message I get from kamoso is:

The webcam controller was unable to find or load wrappercamerabinsrc plugin; please make sure all required gstreamer plugins are installed.

The webcam works in firefox.

The commands:

gst-launch-1.0 -v -m camerabin
gst-launch-1.0 -v -m wrappercamerabinsrc

Return an error like:

ERROR: pipeline could not be constructed: no element "..."

Does it work for you?

This is part of gstreamer-plugins-bad which will never be part of Slackware. You can install it yourself and recompile kamoso.

Their documentation might be out of date, reading from https://github.com/KDE/kamoso, they say they depend on good and base only, but the component in gstreamer (https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/do...?gi-language=c) state it is from bad plugin package.

You bring up a good point. It's highly likely that the README is out of date since it hasn't been updated in 9 years and it looks like wrappercamerabinsrc started getting used in Nov 2014 (5 1/2 years ago).

Actually I did, turns out another package was missing, I installed it and it fixed the issue, although it was a week a go and I don't remember which one it was again, oh well...

I think there may be an issue in some of the latest. I updated AlienBoB's and then did a slackpkg upgrade-all (having AB's blacklisted) and got a hard lock trying to startx. I reformatted and reinstalled -current and AlienBob's latest and still locked.
