#248 closed System Defect (fixed)

Missing Network Settings in KDE Start Menu (KDE 4.3.5) on PCBSD 8.0 RC2

Reported by: yuvaraj.name Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 8.0
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.0-RC
Keywords: documentation Cc: trac-bugs@…

Description

I found the below instructions in the PC-BSD Users Handbook for configuring network interfaces for internet connectivity.

To start configuring your network interface, click the Start Menu in the lower-left corner (red ball) and click "Settings → Internet & Network → Network Settings".

After installing PC-BSD 8.0 RC2 amd64 on to my Thinkpad T61 laptop, under the "Settings" in the Start Menu, I can see only 3 menu items namely, "GTK Styles and Fonts", "Menu Updating Tool" and "IBus Preferences".

I could not see the menu items "Internet & Network" or "Network Settings" under the "Settings" in the Start Menu. I also tried searching for them, but could not find them anywhere.

Please resolve this issue and/or update the Users Handbook documentation if necessary so that Wireless/Wired? Network Configuration can be done easily.

I finally found the GUI for configuring my Network Interfaces under "System Settings" --> "System Network Configuration" and was able to successfully configure my Wireless Network Interface and connect to Internet.

It would be great if you can update the PC-BSD Users Handbook with correct instructions and then close this issue.
