to NetworkManager.

So.... any thoughts on solving this one?  It's a minor inconvenience
since I don't restart or logout often, but.... it's something I'd like
to resolve if I can.

Not sure it if related, but do you have plasmoid-networkmanagement installed
instead of KNetworkManager?

According to


plasmoid-networkmanagement should be used from KDE45 onwards, but
I've done several installs of 11.4 and I always get KNetworkManager instead.

Not sure if it will help, but it might.

I double checked, and it's using the plasmoid instead of KNetwork
manager - possibly because it was a clean install vs upgrade?  I like
the plasmoid (offers a LOT more information about your conenction)
over the old KNetworkManager.  I wonder... I'll have ot go poke the
bug reports to see ifthere is a known issue with the plasmoid... oddly
though, I'm using the same install on my laptop, and there the
plasmoid is working fine to manage VPNs, wired NIC and WiFi.

No progress on this yet.  I'm still having an issue with the Network
Manager plasmoid - haven't tried switching back to the old
KNetworkManager (I'd rather use the plasmoid).  A second machine
running the same basic 11.4/KDE4 install is not showing the same
issue.... so I'm still stumped on this

Hmmmm.... I've reinstalled everything on a second computer - clean
install from the 11.4 KDE LiveCD, and the NetworkManager plasmoid
definitely does not work after boot (but will work if you manually
cycle the network after startup) if you set to use NetworkManager
instead of Traditional ifup. If I switch back to the old
KNetworkManager, everything works as expected.

I can open a bug report... any suggestions for what log files to include?

Is no one else seeing this?
