Summary: The Network Manager does not show up in the toolbar at
the bottom of the screen
Product: openSUSE 12.1
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Workspace
Found By: ---
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/535.7 (KHTML,
like Gecko) Chrome/16.0.912.63 Safari/535.7
I am unable to get the network manager to display in the toolbar at the bottom
of the screen in a fresh install of OpenSuSE 12.1.
I installed using mostly the defaults into a VM on my desktop machine and used
YaST to configure the networking to use the network manager.
When I select the widget the icon shows a piece of paper with a question mark,
indicating that the icon is missing.
The only way I can get the network manager to run is to type "plasmoidviewer
I have made sure that all of the network manager components are installed since
I need this for PPTP VPN functionality.
Note that the VM is running on OpenSUSE 11.3 and I am using KVM.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OpenSUSE 12.1 into a VM then install all of the updates using
defaults (though I set no separate partition for /home). Use KDE 4 as the
2. In YaST configure the network adapter to use Network Manager instead of YAST
3. No network manager icon in KDE 4.
Unable to configure the network after switching.
I expect to be able to see the network manager icon or at least be able to
install the widget.
I am able to reproduce this every time. The only way I have discovered that I
can bring up the Network Manager is to type
plasmoidviewer org.kde.networkmanagement at the command prompt.
