Currently we use the monolithic knetworkmanager.  Upstream tells me
that the plasmoid is now in a better shape than knetworkmanager and
advises us to switch to it.  If we are to switch we should do so
before Beta 1 next week and with lots of testing.  So testers needed
using the following procedure.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/experimental
apt-get update 
apt-get install plasma-widget-networkmanagement
apt-get remove network-manager-kde
killall knetworkmanager
sleep 3
qdbus org.kde.kded /kded org.kde.kded.loadModule networkmanagement
right click on the system tray -> System tray settings -> plasma
widgets -> tick network management

You should now be able to use the plasmoid to connect to the network
and reply to this e-mail telling us how you got on.

Thanks in advance
