Dog gone it! I hit enter key before I was ready. I hope this is a valid issue…
OK, so far I have not found a way to get wifi to start automatically in LXQt. I can also start it from cli:
$ nmcli --ask device connect wlp2s0
I can’t believe this after what, a year and half, and user still has to install ‘networkmanager-applet’ (which is for GNOME not Qt, get it, LXQt desktop?)?
So anyway to have wifi start automatically in LXQt desktop you have to install ‘networkmanager-applet’. But for me it will not save wifi password, that is a serious flaw… (And yes I have saved the wifi password in the configuration editor, multiple times.)
Can we get this fixed for Cooker hence OMLx 4?
Can we make this a dependency for task-lxqt for OMLx 3?
Do we have to have the GNOME networkmanager-applet package? No way to get the regular NetworkManager to work in LXQt desktop? This one amuses and baffles me.
I’ll post another thread about the not saving password for wifi if issue persists or I don’t find something with Internet search. Would be good to know if this issue affects/effects other users as well.
