Using nm-applet instead of kde-plasma-networkmanagement

Do you prefer to use the old NetworkManager gui instead of kde-plasma-networkmanagement? If so just follow these simple instructions to enable it by default.

Enable nm-applet autostart

$ yum install NetworkManager-gnome

$ mkdir ~/.config/autostart

$ grep -v NotShowIn /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop > ~/.config/autostart/nm-applet.desktop

then use systemsettings->(system administration)->Startup and Shutdown to:

  • enable nm-applet

Disable kde-plasma-networkmanagement

On Fedora 14, kde-plasma-networkmanagement is used by default in kde. The simplest way to disable it, is to uninstall it. Even if the plasma applet isn't present or active on your desktop, it's kded module autoloads, which will prevent other managers, like nm-applet, to function.

Alternatively, you can, edit

/usr/share/kde4/services/kded/networkmanagement.desktop

to contain

X-KDE-Kded-autoload=false

(be warned, this modification will get lost if kde-plasma-networkmanagement package is ever updated)

Restart your session

Logout, Login, and you should now see nm-applet active in your system tray.
