Bug ID: 1190453 Summary: Bug in KDE Software Updater App? - "Network disabled" when using wifi Classification: openSUSE Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed Version: Current Hardware: x86-64 OS: Other Status: NEW Severity: Major Priority: P5 - None Component: KDE Applications Assignee: email@example.com Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org QA Contact: email@example.com Found By: --- Blocker: ---
Hello, I think I may have found a bug that only appears under certain conditions. In KDE, you are supposed to get update notifications by default in the bottom right corner. You can change how often there are checks for updates, default is daily, but I never got any notification until I launched Discover manually.
Now, if Im not going into Discover manually, but when I just click on the little arrow and then system updates, I get the message "Network is disabled".
I wondered why that is, since my network is in fact not disabled. I noticed, that my wifi only connects about 2 seconds after I login, and I suspect that the applet expects an already running connection when the UI loads - I think this is how it'd work if I had a wired connection.
So IMO, there should be a failsafe built in: "If connection not active on login, try again 1 hour after", or something like this, otherwise I'll never be able to get notified about updates unless I manually trigger them. I think this is not how that piece of software is supposed to work, so it should be changed.
To be sure, I checked this with an active LAN connection while forgetting my WIFI ones. After a restart, the updater checks for updates at startup and tells me the system is up to date. So it is a bug.
