Description Stephen Warren 2005-12-18 02:24:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051211 Fedora/1.5-1.1 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
nm-applet isn't that useful under KDE, where it can't remember WEP keys for networks etc.

When a WEP key is provided to nm-applet, it attempts to save it, which yields the following error message:

** (nm-applet:3000): WARNING **: Error saving passphrase in keyring.  Ret=2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to KDE
2. Run nm-applet
3. Enter a WEP key
4. Note errors in /tmp/xses-*
5. reboot & login
6. Note nm-applet didn't remember WEP key

Additional info:
Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2005-12-18 19:26:35 EST
nm-applet is designed for GNOME only.  If you are able to run it at all under
KDE, that's somewhat lucky, but its unsupported.  If someone were to write a KDE
version of the applet, we would gladly accept it.
Comment 2 Stephen Warren 2005-12-19 03:29:57 EST
That's odd. It works fine under KDE, except for the fact it can't save the WEP keys.

Perhaps KDE should be removed from FC if it isn't supported!
