Hi,

thanks for your hints! I added them to the top of the page as many people seem to miss KNemo under KDE4. - Feb 17 2009

To be honest, since one year I am using Gnome, so the chances for a KDE4 port - at least from me - are very small. ;-)

It's good to see that even after that long time there are still people that like using KNemo - on the other side this project was done by myself because I had the need for a small and flexible network monitor. But that was back in 2004. Even if I would still use KDE the network monitors coming with most distributions would be enough for my needs. I can connect and disconnect several connections, I have a visual feedback and status for every connection, that's all I want.

So sorry to disappoint you... but hey, there is hope: http://vizzzion.org/?blogentry=839

Seems very promising to me. - Feb 04 2009

Its in interfacestatistics.cpp in function updateCurrentMonth(). This function creates a new month whenever it can't find the current month in the statistics.

Maybe you could use a condition like 'only if we have a new month and the current day is equal or greater 15 create a new month'. But this could cause some unexpected behavior elsewhere. - May 25 2008

Unfortunately its no hard coded value. It simply compares the current month against the month reported by QDate::currentDate(). And if Qt thinks there is a new month KNemo also starts a new month.

Hi,

there is no further development of KNemo so there won't be any bug fix releases.

What you could try to change in the configuration is the used backend. This could solve your problem. - May 19 2008

sounds like you are using an older version of KNemo. Current version is 0.4.8 and contains some fixes for 'high cpu load'-bugs.

Could you please check and update if necessary. - Sep 09 2007

These are common errors you are getting when compiling on a system for the first time. There are several so-called header-files missing. They are normally contained in packages with the ending '-devel' or '-dev' and must be installed once. For this new error you are getting you should check for a package called kdelibs-dev or similar.

Sorry, I cannot be more specific as I am using another distribution. - Jun 22 2007

Hi,

surely I will consider this. Not sure if an export to HTML makes sense as I am already using an XML format so that people interessted in other formats can write their own scripts to convert the XML file into something different.

BTW: right now you could copy the file from the mentioned directory somewhere else and copy it back after you've deleted your ~/.kde folder. Not that elegant but it works. :-) - May 14 2007

Hi,

it would help a lot if you could submit a wish for this at bugs.kde.org. This helps reminding me...

Let me know which values you exactly need/want to see and where to get them. I have no experience so far with IPv6 so I am not sure if 'ifconfig' for example will provide the needed information and where I can get them using the sys-filesystem.

Any hints and help in making me 'IPv6-aware' is appreciated... :-) - May 09 2007

Sorry that I cannot help you any further with this but I have no experience with VPN connections e.g. I have no idea how to set up a test-VPN connection for debugging purposes.

Only workaround is to use the nettools-backend - but I guess you are already aware of this. - Apr 12 2007

Hi,

what do you mean by 'link in the control center'? Do you mean KNemos entry?

Please make sure that - if it is possible for you to open the control center entry of KNemo - the option to use KNemo for monitoring the interfaces is active. What I needed to do to get KNemo start automtically after a new install was to disable and immediately enable this option again.

Or do I understand you completely wrong and you have a different problem? - Apr 12 2007

Hi,

the bug with the wrong encryption status I could verify on my own yesterday evening. Will check what is the reason for this.

About the missing channel number: Do you use the nettools backend? - See the MISC tab in the configuration dialog of KNemo. The nettools don't seem to provide this information. Using the sys backend I get both information, the frequency and the channel number. - Apr 12 2007

Hi,

could you please post the output of 'iwconfig' for your wlan interface when it is connected in ad-hoc mode?

About the graphical traffic analyzer: when you middle-click on the interface icon KNemo opens a traffic plotter, is that what you meant?

BTW: KNemo is not actively developed at the moment, as I am just in the process of having a house built which is rather time consuming! ;-) On the other hand I have no internet connection at home until we move into the new house which should be around the end of March.
Just in case anybody wondered if KNemo is dead or if there will be a version for KDE 4.0... - Feb 20 2007

BTW: you could ask the port maintainer for FreeBSD if he adapted the backend to work on BSD. If so he is maybe interessted in adding his work as a new backend to KNemo. Then KNemo could support (Free)BSD out of the box which is something I also had in mind when I created the new backend architecture. - Dec 25 2006

Well, KNemo is only supposed to be a network monitor, hence the name. The only way to configure your network via KNemo is to use the custom commands you can setup for every interface in the configuration dialog. This means that only if you are able to configure your interface by running a single command on the command line you will be able to use KNemo for configuration by adding this entry to the context menu of KNemo.

If you need more options to configure your network KNemo might not be the right program for you... - Dec 25 2006

I wasn't aware that there is a BSD version of KNemo. Long time ago a BSD users asked me if I could port KNemo to BSD because the format of the output of 'ifconfig' (used to gather the network information) seemed to be different between BSD and Linux. So I thought that KNemo is not working on BSD...

But anyway, if there is a port of KNemo for BSD it wasn't done by me. Please contact the original creator of the port for an updated version... or use the source from here. ;-) - Dec 24 2006

Hmm, I thought heavy disc activity only occurs with the nettools backend, so have you tried the sys backend? The bugreport you posted showed 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig' in the output of dmesg, so I guess you are running nettools backend. - Dec 24 2006

Hi, me again. :-)

You asked me to add a "bytes/second label" and first I thought I knew what you meant. But now I am not sure.

As you certainly know there is already a label for up- and download speed on the traffic tab of the status dialog and there is also one that can be switched on for the tooltip.

What kind of label have you meant and which information should it contain? - Dec 08 2006

Please try 'kcmshell kcm_knemo' on the commandline to see if this brings up the control center module.

If not, where did you install KNemo? I had and have many problems when installing it in ~/.kde (thats were I install compiled KDE sources as user for some reasons I don't really remember). Did you run configure with the --prefix argument? - Nov 21 2006

Ok, so yesterday I created and payed my Mandriva-Club-Account as I wanted to support one distribution with some money and I liked the 'overall-expierence' of Mandriva most.

If you know the commands you need to use on the command line (this is different for every distribution, that's why I didn't add them directly to KNemo) you can add these commands in the configuration dialog of KNemo. The option can be found on the interface-tab of the config-dialog and is named 'Context Menu'.

Take a look at this screenshot to see what I mean: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/pre2/12956-2.png - Nov 14 2006

Thanks for the compliment! :-)

Surely I can implement this... as soon as I started work on KNemo again. The last weeks I was 'evaluating' many Linux distributions to see where they stand and which of them fits best with my needs.

I found that Mandriva has the nicest control center and is really fast, Freespire looks amazingly good but openSuSE still has the most configuration options in Yast. I would prefer a mix of those 3...

Another thing is that I am not sure if a further development of KNemo makes any sense as there are now many KNemo-like programs out there. And there is even (K)NetworkManager which not only monitors your connections but also let you configure them. Is there still a need for a tool like KNemo?

Let me see what comes out of all my pondering... :-) - Nov 08 2006

Go to the KDE Control Center -> Internet and Networking and open the KNemo configuration dialog (Network Monitor). There is now an option at the top of the dialog saying something like "Use KNemo to monitor your interfaces".

Activate it and KNemo should start with KDE. - Nov 08 2006

Hi,

depending on your X installation there should be a package called something like xorg-devel or XFree86-devel that you need to install in order to compile any of the applications here on kde-look.

So look for packages that have to do with X and where the name contains the term 'devel'. - Oct 18 2006

See above the posting 'random crashes'. I think it is the same problem that you have. Still I have no idea what could be the reason for this crash but it seems that my latest changes in the sysbackend have something to do with it.

Can you confirm, that it didn't happen with 0.4.5 or if you use the nettools backend with 0.4.6? - Oct 18 2006

Do you have a rather huge traffic amount that you transfer (some hundred MB or even some GB a day) or only a 'normal' amount.

I had some crashes on the weekend of KDED and Kicker but I am not sure if they came from KNemo. But on the weekend I transfered more MB than usual, so maybe there is a connection. - Oct 13 2006

Well, I am always happy if someone has a reasonable feature request. Yours definitely is one of them. Other requests are rather exotic and I don't feel the desire to implement them.

KNemo already had this feature using some special KDE labels but I didn't like the spacing between the different lines so I removed it. I though nobody would miss it anyway... seems I was wrong.

What do you think about a button saying something like 'Copy text to clipboard'? Would that be helpful for you or do you only need single lines from the text? - Oct 10 2006
