This applet controls killswitches and enables you to turn off or on radio devices. I designed that application to use the wireless toggle function key on my Lenovo laptop which has a single toggle function key for 3 devices (bluetooth, wifi and ultrawideband).

I am currently not succeeding in building RPM packages for Fedora and Mandriva. I don't use those distributions and it will take me quite a while to figure out how to fix my issue. If anyone could help me on the make install and the file locations for the plasmoid, I would be delighted to update my packages.
