If KDED (the program that loads all startup services) crashes then it is normal that none of the services is running. The question is which service is crashing KDED. Uninstall KNemo and see if KDED still crashes or not.

BTW: You can start KDED in a console and do not have to log out and in again to get it started. - Aug 20 2006

Does it make sense or does it cause more trouble by people complaining that they cannot start KNemo any longer? - Aug 14 2006

Just interessted:

This data.h that is in your KDEDIR$/include, can you tell, maybe from its content, to which application/package it belongs?

Maybe I can find a way to tell the buildprocess to first search the local directories for a file and if not found look in other places. - Aug 11 2006

0.4.3 is out and the new sys backend reduces CPU load remarkably.

As a drawback the number of collected information is lower with this backend as with the previous Nettools. - Aug 06 2006

Hi,

1.) This can already now be done by hand. Just take a look at the icons in ~/.kde/share/icons/crystalsvg/22x22/actions that start with 'network_'. Create 4 own icons and replace one set in this folder with your own set.

2.) I added your suggestion to the TODO-/wishlist. It sounds interesting and I will see if I have the time to implement it. - Jun 18 2006

Thanks! In the meantime I also received the updated translations for Hungary. As the translations for KNemo are now also in SVN and somehow handled by the respective translation team I am not sure what exactly to do with them?

Does anyone know that is the correct way to update the translations of applications in SVN? Mail the translation teams? Simply commit it to SVN (which seems to be rather difficult as every language seems to have its own SVN branch)? - Apr 11 2006

If you don't want to upgrade your KDE simply open the file interfacetray.cpp and comment out line 125 like this

// about.setProgramLogo( DesktopIcon( "knemo" ) );

Hmm, maybe you should use something like 'ifplugd' or similiar to start and stop your interface on demand? KNemo only monitors the output of 'ifconfig', nothing else. - Dec 08 2005

Sure it would be possible. At the moment I am working on statistics for KNemo (collecting and storing transfered data) but work goes on rather slowly as I have very limited time. Next on my TODO would be to use /sys as an alternative to ifconfig.

The KNemo version in SVN (http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/extragear/network/knemo)already has this feature (traffic threshold). But there is still no date for the next release with statistics support. - Dec 06 2005

Have you tried 'usbethern' as name in KNemo? KNemo doesn't run ifconfig for every single interface it has to monitor but instead uses ifconfig without parameter and parses the output. So 'usbethern' should work... I guess. - Nov 28 2005

Go to the KDE control center, there to 'Network' and you should find the configuration for KNemo (the entry should read 'KDE Network Monitor'). Make sure there is at least one interface in the list on the left side. Also make sure that the option 'Hide icon when not connected' on the right is NOT active. Applying these settings should make at least one icon available in your system tray.

If not, please make sure KNemo is running by checking again in the Service Manager of KDE. - Oct 26 2005

Changing KNemo to use a plugin architecture for different backends that provide the needed information is one of the bigger changes that are on my TODO list. But not in the near future... Then there could be backends for /sys or /proc and maybe backends to other tools that provide these information. - Oct 13 2005

Oh well, it is simple, really simple and maybe too simple to be of any use (I mean the value, not my explanation):

KNemo runs 'ifconfig' every second and looks at the value of 'RX bytes' (and TX Bytes) and calculates the difference between 2 runs. E.g. now it says 5000 bytes, 1 second later it's 6000 bytes which gives 1000 bytes/s. I have seen other programs are using a history so that the calculated speed doesn't alter too much from second to second. - Oct 04 2005

Well, this is a pretty static information. I think there is no need to monitor this via KNemo. Once you installed your DSL and took a look under /proc (I must admit, I don't know where to find this information there by now) you have it and it won't change for the future.

So I think this is no good candidate to monitor with KNemo. - Sep 28 2005

Hi,

no it doesn't take the speed from /proc but instead calculates it regularly like you can see it in many download/transfer dialogs.

You can set up a notification when the connection gets lost using the standard KDE notification mechanism i.e. KNemo can show a popup, play a sound or even run a certain program. - Sep 28 2005

Hi,

Hi,

tools like ifplugd can do this job already very well. I am also using it on my laptop in combination with KNemo. It checks whether a cable is plugged in and if yes it automatically starts the interface. And KNemo will detect this and popup in the systray. - Jun 14 2005

Statistics are on my TODO for a long time... but you know, sometimes you can not force yourself to code on something when you don't have the feeling to do so. That's the reason why there was no update to KNemo since last autumn.

The other thing that keeps me from doing work on KNemo is that Gentoo still doesn't have KDE 3.4 as stable packets. But maybe that is just a lame excuse... - May 28 2005

So a switch to /proc should be the solution to both problems it seems. Oh well, when I have again time for KNemo development I should consider this for one of the next major versions.

Thank you for spending your time on KNemo and giving me another reason to switch to /proc. I avoided the switch in the past... because I was too lazy and nearly nobody complained about the 2% load. - Feb 24 2005

Hi,

I also recognized the ralatively high load that KNemo causes. The reason seems to be that KNemo runs the 3 programs ifconfig, iwconfig and route every second. Maybe I should make the poll rate configurable (what I prefer) or I should change KNemo to use /proc instead of the output of these 3 programs.

The 49k written to disk every 5 seconds I cannot explain. How did you find out and do you know where they get written? - Feb 23 2005

Hmmm... not sure about this. But KNemo does nothing special about the cursor (e.g. settings a different cursor or the like) and instead is a standard KDE application that uses the standard KDE classes.

Meaning I don't have a clue why this could happen and would rather check if other programs in the system tray don't show the same behaviour. Or do you use KDE CVS or 3.4 Beta and the problem comes from that direction...? - Jan 30 2005

> What is netapplet doing that KNemo isn't?

I don't know what netapplet is doing but KNemo just monitors your connections. In other words, it is, more or less, a graphical frontend to 'ifconfig'. Whatever output you get from 'ifconfig' KNemo will display it via the icons in the systray.

That said it is clear, that KNemo does not check (because it can't) if the connections 'ifconfig' displays are working properly or not.

It seems you are having a problem with your web connection through the routers. There may be a working connection to the routers but that's not always enough.

Maybe you should recheck with netapplet, if this is still working.... - Dec 17 2004

Hi Martin,

great you like KNemo!

To answer your questions:
- there is no homepage and there are no plans from my side to build one. There is only a limited amount of time I want to spend on KNemo...
- this is also the reason there have been no updates to KNemo in the last time. Other things were more important but maybe I'll use the Christmas Holidays to continue working on KNemo
- the main reason I didn't change to /sys or /proc is that 'ifconfig' seems to work good enough for most people, only on slower machines it seems to put a bit too much load on the CPU

So don't expect an update this year but I have good news, a guy from Canada is working on the statistics/logging for KNemo and will send me a patch when he finished coding. - Dec 03 2004
KNemo

Network by jstamp 805 comments

Ah, ok, I already guessed something like that.

KNemo depends on 'ifconfig', so when there is no change in the output of 'ifconfig' KNemo won't detect any changes.

You need a program that monitors the insertion/removal of the cable and starts or stop the interface appropriately. I use 'ifplugd' on Gentoo and I remember a package 'laptop-net' for Debian.

Try one of these programs and you have the desired effect in KNemo. - Dec 03 2004

Hi,

what exactly do you mean with 'disconnecting'? Unplugging the network cable or disconnect from PPP?

Could you please post the output of 'ifconfig' while online and after you disconnected, so I can maybe see where the problem is. - Dec 02 2004

Network by jstamp 805 comments

There is sort of autodetection, maybe it's a bit hidden. But when you open the config dialog for the first time a popup will tell you about it.

When you press 'Defaults' in the config dialog, KNemo will look under '/proc/net/dev' and automatically add all interfaces found there. - Nov 22 2004

Hmmm,

either I don't understand your suggestion or you are using an older version of KNemo. Or you didn't yet find the feature.

But the thing you are asking for is already implemented. Just open the config dialog for KNemo and on the 'Interfaces' tab activate the option 'Display custom entries in context menu'.

And certainly make sure you are using the latest version of KNemo! :-) - Nov 18 2004
