It seems that my
knetworkmanager is not starting anymore. Read: In KDE4's sys tray I don't have a icon to manage my networks.
Also when starting it from terminal or kick off menu literally "nothing" happens. I don't know what's wrong with it.
I tried to start it via
Alt + F2 - also nothing.
Maybe also worth to note that in the terminal no error occurs, the command return ready for the next input, not the slightest error message. ó_O?
Sadly after reading this answer on superuser.com it seems I can not connect to wifi via iwconfig 'cause my network is WPA2 encrypted. (Basically I can not set they passphrase ->
So it seems I've to get
knetworkmanger running again as I also can't download other tools.
I've tried stuff like
sudo service network-manager restart
but it didn't seem to help.

(It was a 2 liner and continued stating to switch back do some q-foo... default mode hence I reckon the manager has started up no visual reference (systray icon) ).

*If you run into the same situation: Need to install something without having network access: google the package name and download it from ubuntu make sure to select the right version though! In my case I got a .deb file which I simply copied on my usb stick and installed it on the system via double click in the file manager (doplhin in my case). So don't panic if you run into these troubles! :)
