I was going to report a new bug, but I think this covers my complaint: after upgrading F12 to F13 I no longer have nm-applet in my system tray when using KDE.

The F13 release notes don't give any clue about this. KNetworkManager is not an option as it doesn't have the VPN info that used to be present on the nm-applet menu and it doesn't seem to like running for more than one session at a time.

Please advise how to restore the previous nm-applet to KDE.

Vytas mailed me privately with the answer, I've commented out NotShowIn=KDE in  /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2010-07-26 17:40:26 UTC
NetworkManager-gnome was deliberately disabled in KDE to make room for the KDE one.

Comment 4 Vytas 2010-07-26 18:59:16 UTC
But there is no KDE 4.x one too? At least in auto-start after upgrade to 13.

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2010-07-26 19:35:27 UTC
There is a KDE one, it's pulled in automatically on fresh installs, but not on updates. "yum install knetworkmanager" will get it for you. (And yes, it's KDE 4, the KDE 3 knetworkmanager is long gone.)

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2010-07-26 20:02:06 UTC
Another way of making sure there are no missing default pieces, is to issue:

yum groupinstall kde-desktop

Comment 8 Jonathan Wakely 2010-08-05 16:50:37 UTC
as I said earlier, knetworkmanager doesn't show the VPN I had configured, but no matter, I've re-enabled nm-applet which works fine
