Yup,

that's indeed how I use KNemo with my PPP connection.

Thanks for pointing out again, guess this will also be useful for other users. - Jun 14 2004

That's why it is a monitor and not a dialup tool. ;-)

I think there are already enough tools that provide dial on demand or take care of removing/inserting network cables. - Jun 13 2004

Hi,

not a top priority on my TODO list (as it is nothing I really miss) but I will keep it in mind for further enhancements.

Thanks for the suggestion and the positive feedback! :-) - Jun 13 2004

Hi,

this is a known bug in KNemo 0.1.5 and is fixed in the current release 0.1.6.

About the daemon monitoring the uptime from system start rather than from KDE start: I'm not really in need for such a high precision so there is little chance I will do such a feature myself. Maybe someone else wants to contribute this... - Jun 06 2004

Hi rex,

thanks for your information. There were already some Mandrake users complaining about the missing configuration dialog but I wasn't sure what the problem was.

Hope the solution I provide above works on Mandrake. - Jun 06 2004

Hi,

may I suggest the usage of tools like 'ifplugd' or 'laptop-net' to shutdown the interface when no cable is plugged in and to start the interface on reconnecting the cable?

I use 'ifplugd' myself on my laptop and it does a good job in starting and stopping the interface. Then I have the desired effect of the icon popping up on plugging the cable and removing the icon on disconnect. - Jun 05 2004

Hi!

I am not really sure if I understood this right. Is there an IP-address assigned to eth1? If yes, then KNemo identifies the interface as being up and displays an icon. If no IP is assigned then KNemo only displays an icon if the option 'Hide icon when not available' is deselected.

Please make sure this option is activated to hide the icon when there is no IP assigned to the interface. - Jun 05 2004

About the uptime: Where do I get this information? I don't know any way how to get the uptime of an interface from the system.

About the icons: You have to restart KDE to get the new version of KNemo loaded into memory.

Have you checked if the icon is displayed after a KDE restart? If the icon theme you are using doesn't have the needed icons KNemo will automatically load the ones that come with it. I checked this on my own system and it worked.

Please make sure that the icons are installed under $KDEDIR/share/icons/crystalsvg/22x22/actions. Their names are like the names mentioned in the ChangeLog. - Jun 05 2004

Hi again!

Normally a 'make install' will do the trick. So there's nothing you can do wrong.

But I said something wrong, the command to start the control center module is

kcmshell kcm_knemo

So please try this one! :-) - Jun 03 2004

Indeed there is something like QDate.

And on my harddisk is already v0.1.6 of KNemo using QDateTime, a combination of QDate and QTime so now the uptime even can display days! :-) - Jun 02 2004

Just some thoughts, no real solution:

Do you have any other folders containing desktop files? For example on my Gentoo box I have something like

/usr/kde/3.2/share/applnk/Settings/Network/

Try 'kde-config --prefix' on the command line. If there is another directory, copy the desktop file to this folder.

You could also try a 'kcmshell knemod' to bring up the configuration dialog. - Jun 02 2004

This is only one half of the solution. My point is also valid. I tested with:

QTime t1(23,55);
QTime t2(00,05);

kdDebug() << "secsTo: " << t1.secsTo( t2 ) << endl;

and the result is:

secsTo: -85800

So starting KNemo 5 minutes before midnight will give you an uptime of -85800 after 10 minutes. - Jun 02 2004

Thanks for the icons!

I stored them locally for the time when I added support for different icons. Then I would package them with KNemo. - Jun 02 2004

Looking at the code this seems clear. QTime is no good choice when measuring longer periods of time. After midnight the current QTime will be smaller than the one stored when starting KNemo so you get negative times.

Will change this to QDateTime displaying days, hours, minutes and seconds.

Thanks for the report! - Jun 02 2004

Oh, nice feature! :-)

How long was the interface up until you noticed this bug?

So I know how long to wait until I can reproduce it. - Jun 02 2004

Yup, I noticed KNetworkLED. It was released just some hours after I released KNemo. Now, Open Source is all about choice...

About the icons, they are stored in $KDEDIR/share/apps/knemo/pics and you could simply replace them with the ones from KNetworkLED. But I guess you have to change the names of them.

On the other side, these icons are the work of 15 minutes, copying and pasting existing icons with KIconEdit. Maybe you would like to edit them yourself or even create new ones.

Hmm... there would be room for another settings dialog where one can change icons. Themeable KNemo... oh well. Maybe I'll do this some day. :-) - Jun 02 2004

Hi,

it seems that your control center module wasn't installed correctly.

I think I read somewhere that Mandrake 10 changed the directories for control center modules, but lets see...

In order to work correctly you should find the desktop file for the kc-module in $KDEDIR/share/applnk/Settings/Network/kcm_knemo.desktop.
If the file isn't there, take a look at the output of 'make install' where it gets installed and tell me the location.

If KDE finds the desktop-file you should have an entry 'Network Monitor' in your KDE Control Center/Internet & Network. Configure KNemo with this dialog. Unless KNemo isn't configured there won't be an icon in the system tray.

Hope this helps. - Jun 02 2004

Hi Michael,

I will wait and see if there are more problems with localized 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig'. I already had to work around some localisation problems and now it should work with german versions of both programs. I try to parse the output in such a generic way that it shouldn't depend on the language.

I will wait and see if more problems with localisation come up and then I'll try to overcome my laziness and port it to /proc/net/dev and /proc/net/arp.

Thanks for your suggestions! - May 31 2004

Hi Lenz!

I just want it to be a network monitor. Or more correct, the UI part of a monitor. Sure it would be nice to have this feature in it, but there are already a number of tools that provide this. On Gentoo I use 'ifplugd' and I remember using 'laptop-net' or something similar on Debian.

They can detect insertion and removal of network cables and start or stop the interface. And it's really nice to see the little monitor in your systray pop up when you insert the network cable!

Thanks anyway for you comment! - May 31 2004

I already had the same ideas. The additional meu entries for starting and stopping an interface will come in a later version. For ppp connections one could even use these entries to start and stop KPPP with no need for root permissions. And as you mentioned, KDESU should do the trick for ethernet connections.

The "second click removes the status dialog" is also something I already missed.

So there is a good chance that these 2 features will make it in a future version.

Thank you for the feedback! :-) - May 31 2004

KDE 3.5 Themes by thomas12777 1262 comments

It seems that taskbar notification doesn't work as expected with Baghira. For example when using kopete I set the notifications to highlight the entry in the taskbar when a new message arrives. But only the text of the taskbar entry changes to white, not so the background (should switch to selection color I guess) which makes the notification feature almost useless.

Any easy workaround, any setting (e.g. in the color settings) that fixes this? - Apr 14 2004

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by jscott 1 comment

I had to change the line

[KSplash Theme: It's Not Blue - Slate]

in Theme.rc to match with the directory of the Theme, i.e.

[KSplash Theme: Not Blue Slate]

to get it work, otherwise I got the KDE default splash screen. But beside that I really like the design!

Thanks! - Mar 11 2004

It seems that the splash screen does not work for KDE 3.2 Final. All I get when using the splash is the background image. No text indicating the progress.

Is there a way to get the wallpaper without the logo, text and animal? Only the landscape.

Or does anybody know of wallpapers similar to this one? Only a landscape, with grass and sky and the bright colors and scanlines? All I can find on the net are mixed with some logos or other pictures... - Jan 13 2004
