I'm using the latest version of Kubuntu and need to use nm-applet instead of knetworkmanager due to access issues with my work VPN and also seem to have issues with knetworkmanager forgetting how to connect to wifi (but that's another question altogether). I have installed all the needed packages to run nm-applet (the default Gnome network manager applet that comes in the network-manager-gnome package). Each time I reboot my machine I have to follow these steps:
- open terminal and execute: killall knetworkmanager
- launch Krunner and run nm-applet
- all runs as expected
I'd like to be able to just setup my environment to not launch knetworkmanager and instead launch nm-applet at startup.
How is this accomplished?
