``> sudo apt-get install network-manager-kde
There (currently) appears to be no network-manager-kde package (any more?).
Feels like the contents are already / now included within the network-manager package itself, which is ‘pre’-installed.
``- so wiki network manager start / install section can be removed / modified. (So people don’t chase their tail looking for a package that doesn’t exist. Right repository? [‘broken’] aptitude not working? Wha …)
At vm install, a network icon already appears next to the time.
Sadly, it has a goofy / alarming big yellow question mark in it.
Some, like myself, will click on it, wonder why there is no network, why isn’t there a network!, ifconfig, poke, prod, and otherwise chase their tail for a while … giving up … to realize, eventually … the network is working fine, the icon’s buggy. (Which anyone familiar with NetworkManager will be completely unsurprised at. But not to ‘blame’ for, here. [As wiki article explains. Should such affected users ever even see it.])
``> make it visible in Network Manger, by editing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf …
I suggest that managed=true should be the default / initial whonix setting. (If the icon is going to be present by default - certainly my preference.) At least the yellow question mark goes away, people clicking on it see a ‘viable’ network, stats, think network and life good, and move on.
The wiki notes:
``> That would be quite useful, if changing settings where possible.
(Assuming correct / network changes via that interface are impossible) I would guess that fewer will encounter or be bothered by an inexplicable reason for changes to not take / be enterable, than get puzzled by a mysterious yellow question mark and/or would appreciate seeing stats at first blush / receiving immediate / positive feedback that the network is functioning.
