Updated Cmake commands 5 Feb 09.
So very stoked. This has been a long time coming. Network Manager in KDE4
I been wait a while for KDE4 to get this. I mean really almost everyone needs to connect to a network at some point, right? Not having a frontend to make it, easy it stupid.
Quick and Dirty run down how to get it and build it.
You need to have the KDE 4 sources/headers and make sure you have Solid.
I have 4.2 installed from the Kubuntu PPA. You will need to verify the DBUS Policy System Directory for your system.
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/networkmanager/ NM-plasmoid
cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde-config –prefix` -DDBUS_SYSTEM_POLICY_DIR=/etc/dbus-1/system.d
sudo make install
There are a some bugs and graphical glitches but it seems to be working ok.
The biggest thing I wonder is why the control module is under System Settings->Advanced->Network Settings and not under the System Settings->General->Network Settings as a the first sub module to make it easier to find for users.
Anyways don’t forget to file your bug reports.
