Description Niko Mirthes 2007-06-04 18:32:24 UTC
Description of problem:
knetworkmanager does not place a .desktop file in $KDEDIRS/share/autostart 
causing it to not always appear in the systray applet on login. 
knetworkmanager's .desktop is in $KDEDIRS/share/autostart while running the F7 
livecd and it has the required entries for KDE to autostart it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
knetworkmanager-0.1-0.9.svn20070409.fc7 (I chose kdenetwork as the component 
because knetworkmanager is not yet in the list.)

How reproducible:
With a fresh user created, knetworkmanager does appear to start. Upon 
restoring my existing /home partition and user, knetworkmanager fails to 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login, knetworkmanager icon is not present in the systray.
2. Find it on the menu and start it. Icon appears in the systray, 
configuration set to start at login.
3.Re-login and note the absence of knetworkmanager's icon in the systray.
Actual results:
knetworkmanager refuses to start with KDE even after checking the associated 
checkbox in the app's configuration tool.

Expected results:
knetworkmanager should start at login if configured to do so.

Additional info:
I've noticed kpowersave (also start-able at login) does place a .desktop file 
in $KDEDIRS/share/autostart.

Simply copying




works for me.

I've also been told Novell/SuSE 
include /usr/share/autostart/knetworkmanager-autostart.desktop in their

Kerry Beagle does not start too.

may be related to bug #243611

Doncho, probably worth filing a separate bug against kerry.

I'd like to confirm that this bug (knetworkmanager not starting with your
session) is affecting me as well.  Fedora 7,

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-08-28 20:26:05 UTC
Tried out the knetworkmanger-0.2 koji build, and it actually started with my kde
session!  Looks like we have a winner.

Comment 6 Roland Wolters 2007-08-29 19:16:03 UTC
You might want to add "OnlyShowIn=KDE;" to the desktop file 
in /usr/share/autostart since Gnome has its own panel.
