KDE 4.4.0 - Always Allow - Keyring - Wireless

Postby enigma on Fri Feb 19, 2010 11:28 am

Hello

First I must give my congratulations to the KDE team because Linux Mint KDE CE 8 is the first KDE distro that worked wirelessly out of the box. In the past I had to load Gnome first and then KDE to get wireless conductivity but not this time.

Now the problem and it is wireless related.

This is a new install with KDE4.3 upgraded via download manager to KDE4.4.0.

When I set up LMKDECE8 I clicked Always Allow for the keyring question but now each and every time the machine starts up the same question appears. Does the user allow the action on the Gnome wireless applet.

I tried to setup an identical connection from scratch. I click Always Allow then deleted the original but the same question comes up. I have deleted all connections and started from scratch with the same result. I have checked the permissions as much as my knowledge allows and nothing seems to amiss.

I would start purging (config files and all) the appropriate files and reloading but I do not know KDE 4.4.0 well enough.

Can anyone help me along? or point me in a different direction?

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try this.

Open the connection editor by right clicking on the network icin in the upper right corner of the screen.
Select your wireless network and click "Edit"
In the lower left corner of the edit box, click on "Available to all users" then click "Apply"
Close the editor.

By making the wireless network available to all users, you remove the requirement to prove, by entering your password, that you can legally use the network.

Hope this helps.

Actually since you are in KDE, you want to open it from the bottom right corner. :)

Sorry about that. I forgot not everyone moves their panel to the top of the screen. For most users, the wireless icon will be at the lower right.

Re: KDE 4.4.0 - Always Allow-Keyring-Wireless [SOLVED Sortof]

Postby enigma on Fri Feb 19, 2010 11:29 pm

Thank You for the replies.

Aging Technogeek - I could not get the results that you listed. When I right-clicked on the network icon (at the bottom of my screen :) ) I got a popup that listed wired network, wireless network, vpn ..., configuration (1), and About which stated NetworkManager applet. I clicked on the wireless network line and it took me to the standard editing window with no mention of "Available to all users".

But I do have a solution sortof. My original reason for coming here was my searches brought up nothing. The reason that they brought up nothing was because I used "KDE" in the search. I changed that to "gnome" and a whole new list appeared. In LM8 the KDE network manager was replaced by the gnome network manager. On page three of the search results I looked at

http://davestechsupport.com/blog/2009/01/16/how-to-remove-ubuntus-password-keyring/.

About two screens down I came across

1. Open up your Home Folder by clicking Places>Home Folder
2. Press CTRL-H (or click View>Show Hidden Files)
3. Find a folder called .gnome2 (it has a period at the beginning of the name) and open it by double clicking on it
4. In side of the .gnome2 folder, there is another folder called keyrings. Open it up.
5. Delete any files you find within the keyrings folder
6. Restart the computer
.

I followed these instructions in my own directory. Later when I entered the keyring password window I left them blank and clicked Always Allow and now I have wireless access at boot.

I don't know if this is good OS management but it worked!

Thank You all again.

(1) Sorry for the generalness of the popup but the 4.4.0 machine is downstairs and my memory is not as good as it used to be.

Thank you very much!
Very useful here, where I selected "Available for all users" but had a bad issue: no access to the configuration editor anymore and the nm-applet lost the connection's password.
The freedom technologies are available!
I recommend everyone Linux Mint KDE as the simplest GNU/Linux distribution for the common user
and the italian Santech notebook, 100% linux compatible!
