[edit] Overview

Network Management describes the interaction between the KDE desktop and the system's network information and configuration layers. This means:

  • Informative functions: "Am I online"?
  • Control functions: "Connect to to the internet using my WWAN card"
  • Integration: Tell Konqueror when the computer is not connected to the Internet so it can automatically work in offline mode.

[edit] Status

[edit] KDE Platform 4

Support in Solid for the informational parts of the NetworkManager interface is complete, in [1]. Backends for NetworkManager 0.6 and 0.7 exist, in kdebase/workspace/solid/networkmanager-0.*. A backend for wicd is being worked on by Dario Freddi. Backends for other platforms would be welcome, contact the team for help on getting involved.

The user interface consists of a Plasma applet, a System Settings KCModule, and a kded module. It is a work in progress at playground/base/plasma/applets/networkmanager.

[edit] KDE 3

A rewrite of KNetworkManager for KDE 3 (by openSUSE) is nearly complete. This supports NetworkManager 0.7, which has a different interface to NetworkManager 0.6. More information can be found at the openSUSE KNetworkManager project page.
