It's available to gnome users and does use gtk libs. However, I don't know if wicd works with usb wifi adpters on pcs running gnome desktop.It may however work fine with built in wifi chips such as those on laptops. It used to work on my acer extensa 4630z laptop, but since network manager was fixed on ubuntu lucid I haven't needed to use wicd on my laptop.

Great app!
I have it working on Debian sid with kde4.5, (wicd-client-kde ver 0.1.1) compiled with

mkdir build ; cd build ; cmake ../ ; make ; su -c make install

Just with some issues:
*Doesn't remember window size & position.
*When try to use scripts button, it says "KAuth returned an error code: 7".
*Can't turn on notifications option in preferences.

Just waiting for new version and hope issues are fixed!

Thanks for your great work ;)

Hi,
1- Probably my fault since the changelog seems misleading, but if you talk about not remembering the size when you quit the application, this is normal. Please see my answer to Musikolo at the bottom of page 2.
2- Hmm what I got from the doc is: "An error from D-Bus occurred." I'm not sure of where this might come from. Could you please try to recompile using
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
instead of cmake ../ ? (don't forget to reinstall after that)
3- That's because the notifications are not implemented yet.

Thanks for quick reply...

1.- Sorry about size & position, haven't read it... btw, solved with window properties ;)
2.- I'll try it...
3.- I've thinked that. I'll wait for it.

Btw, it's new app, I think those issues aren't annoying for me... cause I configured scripts searching in config files of wicd-client-gtk, and for notifications, used knemo.

Thanks again for your great work!

Hi again...
Tried to compile with
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
just slightly changed... now, error of KAuth is '4' instead of '7' with 0.1.1 version & git version...

Hi,
error 4 is AuthorizationDenied. Does the error appears before or after KAuth prompts you for the root password?
Also, have you uninstalled everything before reinstalling?

Report

Panko

It never ask for a pass, that error appears on click at "scripts" button without asking password...
Yes, I've uninstalled everything and try with a fresh build and install with:

$cd [wicdclientkde-folder] && mkdir build && cd build
$cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
$make
$su -c make install

Used, as said, ver 0.1.1 and version from git (yesterday).
Btw, program runs good for las night and today without problems...

Trying a search by google makes me think it's a possible issue with policykit/polkit and kde4, like first versions in systemsettings with debian & kubuntu ¿? (I'm not a programmer, so I can't be more explicit... sorry).

If there's a way I can gather some debuf info and give it to you, tell me and I'll try.

Hi!

At this moment, don't know how or why (maybe a "remembered password" when do not ask for it?) it works as it should do, using last version of git, without recompile it or reinstalled it... Possibly it was that I restarted computer and, of course, be in a new session...

Compilation went fine, with any errors, in three versions I used: 0.1.1, git from 2 days ago, and git from today... btw here is process:
cmake: http://pastebin.ca/1942226
make: http://pastebin.ca/1942227

Sorry about any inconvenience as it's working now with no changes... and thanks for your patience...

& thanks for your good work and sharing!

Could you please look at this page and see if it helps?
http://community.kde.org/KAuth_Troubleshooting
If not, please paste here the output of the "make install" command. Just the end, so that I can see what is installed and where.

Yes, it ask me for root password, as the way it should be...

sorry for reply here, but page doesn't let me reply to your message... (maybe a limit for indent replies?)...

Ok, let's try this:
You probably have the digital-clock plasmoid somewhere on your desktop. (If not, run "plasmoidviewer digital-clock")
- Right click > Adjust Date and Time
- Change something so that you can click the Apply button
- Click the button
Does it ask you for the password?

Hi again,

I've just tried out your brand new release and have a few more things to make it even better:

1.- The .desktop file doesn't include the new name:

Name=Wicd Client "for" KDE

2.- Next you have .desktop entries for Spanish:
- GenericName[es]=Cliente Wicd
- Name[es]=Cliente Wicd para KDE

3.- I have tested it out the new feature that remembers the position and size of the window. At least in my PC, it does not work. I have moved and resized the window. Then right click on the tray icon and selected Quit. When I started it up again, it did not remember anything about this.

4.- I miss an "About..." option. You could add it when right-clicking on the tray icon. There is no other simple way to know what version you running otherwise, or am I wrong?

5.- In a few minutes I'll send you by email the Spanish translation.

Thanks a million for you time and effort.

Hi,
1- Isn't the "Name" field supposed to be for the app name? I mean like KMix or Konqueror? And then the "GenericName" would be more descriptive, like "Wicd client for KDE". I know I translated the "Name" string in the desktop file, but maybe there was no point of doing it...
2 and 5- Thanks!
3- Ok they are two things here:
The first is the bug you pointed out in your first comment, I didn't expected the window not to remember its size when you close it. Not quit, just close. This is now fixed.
The second thing is what you are pointing out now, that is the window does not remember its size between "sessions". This is on the TODO list, but I haven't really looked into that yet.
4- That's true. Will do ;)

Great app. I've been waiting for this since I've never been able to get NetworkManger to work. I only have a small problem, which might be attributed to my sessions not being closed down properly but I get two instances each login (ie two icons in my taskbar). One is usually called wicd-client-kde whilst the other is a kdeinit/kdesession instance.

Well, a minor bug for something great. Keep it up.

Normally I find a README.TXT or something with instructions. Here is output of command "cmake ./"



CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
No cmake_minimum_required command is present. A line of code such as

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8)

should be added at the top of the file. The version specified may be lower
if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project. For more
information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers. Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

isn't it obvious? you need cmake version 2.8 or higher

Wow, very nice seen! But actually, that error appears 'cause a line for cmake isn't present in CMakeLists.txt
Next time READ before you comment.

As how to fix the error: open CMakeLists.txt in the source folder of this program. Then add at the top of the file (above everything else) the following line:

CMAKE_MINIMUM_REQUIRED(VERSION 2.8)

Save it, then cd to the folder again. Run:

rm CMakeCache.txt

Then run cmake again and now it should build :)

I have cmake 2.8.1.. what the message indicates is that something is wrong with cmake.txt

If you know how YOU managed why not tell me in plain english instead of nibbling about this or that

untar the file, then cd into it.
Then compile it with "cmake ." that is cmake then a space and a period
Once that is done, type "make" it should get to 100%, if not then you have a problem.
After make is done, install it with "make install"

I tried on my Mytbuntu box running KDE 4.5.1, and it installed with no problem, but it does not show up anywhere in Kmenu, but runs from the command line fine.

My other box is Debian Sid running KDE 4.4.5 and that works perfectly and shows up in the menu.
