I installed the KDE plasma desktop through Ubuntu software center. I am on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
After the install, I'm unable to connect to my WiFi connection in the KDE session. But I can connect to my WiFi perfectly through GNOME session. I've tried a lot without much success. Also KDE doesn't store my password correctly and keeps prompting for authorization again and again.
Some of the things that I noticed:
- Network is detected, Network name and strength is also displayed. Other characteristics also appear properly.
- When the credentials are supplied, it accepts them and continually displays the message "Setting network address". However this process never succeeds.
- At this stage the password is repeatedly asked many times but the connection is never established.
Some of the other things that I did:
- I have also tried other things like restarting my modem and the computer. That didn't work.
- I tried to restart
KNetworkManager. That didn't work either.
ifconfigdisplay all my interfaces and Mac addresses correctly.
Since it's working fine GNOME the drivers are fine. This is sure a KDE specific issue. Other threads related to this on the interwebs don't offer much information either.
Please share a solution for this.
