Actually i'm currently using the default KnetworkManager in OpenSuse 11.2 and i've had no problems for connecting with WIFI. Whereas in kubuntu i frequently had wifi disconnections. So there is something to do with distro as well as KDE4.enigma wrote:Hello
I'll give you my recent experiences with KDE WI-FI.
My wife's machine developed a problem so I thought it was time to update her LTS so I downloaded and installed a FEW new distros and absolutely none with one exception worked on her WI-FI.
Her WI-FI has been working for years. It is a basic D-Link unit. It works.
I tried Kubuntu 9.10 and Ubuntu 9.10. Neither worked. I tried some current LiveCD KDE 3.5 and 4 versions but no luck.
The only distro that works is OpenSUSE 11.2. The reason is that during the install the installer asked whether the user wants to use KNetworkManager. I answered No and now she has a fully functional WI-FI.
It maybe a good idea to offer the user the same option in Mint KDE. I don't know what OpenSUSE uses in place of KNetworkManager maybe WICD but it works.
Hope this helps.
Actually OpenSuse 11.2 is the best KDE 4 distro i've used so far.
It seems like a lot of work has gone into polishing the vanilla KDE4. Because i always had a lot of "Plasma" crashes in all the other KDE4 distros i've used.
