Description:


The Wireless Tools utility for Debian is completely different from that for other linux based systems. Therefore, KDE Control Center and other common applications cannot setup/modify your wireless connections.

Features:
- Discover access points
- Manage connections, AP database
- Continuous monitor (for adjusting your antenna, or you check the signal stability)
- Setup default connection (by modifying the system configuration file)

This application uses codes from the following GPL licensed projects:
PyWireless by S.Çaglar Onur

(You can see more screenshots here.)
and
Gestor Guifi by Julian Coccia (http://julian.coccia.com)

KWireless Tools Pro is intended to Debian based systems. It must work on Ubuntu from Feisty.
Although you can convert it to rpm/tgz but some functions like Setup Default Connection Start/Stop Default Connection will not work on other systems. Moreover on SuSE 10.2, the Continuous Monitor also will not work. Essential packages are missing. They were present in the 9.x series. You need the following packages as dependences: python, pyQt3, pyKDE, pyQwt4, perl-GTK2, wireless-tools, dhcp-client, resolvconf, ifupdown and wpa supplicant (if you use WPA encoding).

You have to install the python-qwt4 library.
If it is installed, please open a terminal and type:

python /usr/share/PyWireless/monitorWindow.py + the name of your active interface as an argument (ra0, ath0, wlan0...)

or without the controls:

python /usr/share/PyWireless/monitor.py

What kind of error message appears?

...is not working right for me. When ever I try to open the manage connections dialog it will immediately resize itself so that the window doesn't fit on my laptop's 1024x768 display. Any idea what might be causing it?

Is it the only problem?

There are a gtk-qt setup in the KDE Control Center. Install the gtk-qt package. Try to alter the settings.
Other style, font size ...
These features cannot be adjusted by programming. They are depends on system settings.

Alright, I figured out what the problem was. It was resizing because I have three DNS servers automatically configured whenever I connect to my router, and the script was displaying each one on its own line forcing everything to spread out

It doesn't appear to support WPA. Plans for that?

I would give a solution for WPA, but to tell the thruth, I cannot test it. It would be a touch-typing not python programming. If you could test it...

This is a python/perl application.
The package contains only "source".
See:
/usr/share/PyWireless

Convert it with alien, or extract it vith Ark!

Got Debian, this was a Question for translation.
Will have a look at the package and we will see.
