KNetworkManager4 works fine


Only if you don't need to use wireless broadband cuz that doesn't work at all. The UI could also do with not sucking so much.

I have a blind spot for UI suckiness. Would you care to point out how it could be improved?

1) the "Connect to other network" dialog looks odd with the network names concatenated much prematurely.
2) The "Connect to other network" item gets high-lighted at the same time as the network name for wireless and mobile devices.
3) I would rather have the connection information in the icon tooltip rather than the menu item tooltip
4) What's the point of being able to add/remove "tray icons" in the configuration dialog?

With the exception of nm-applet's usability f*ck-up to have two different context menus (right click and left click) I think it's menus and windows are well designed. IMHO you could just adapt its design for KNM4.
