    Alright so everything works I just have 2 more questions,

    1. How do I get the network to work if its got a password?
    2. Somehow I have managed to lose my taskbar, I don't know how to get it back lol.

    I installed a style called SlicknesS-Black and it was working the first few times, now it still works ujst theres no taskbar anywhere in sight lol.

    You also put that in the config file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

    Note that if you use an ASCII string as password (as opposed to hex) you have to prefix it with s:

    Code:
    WLAN_KEY[4]="s:password"
    A much better and complete explanation you can read on Alien's wiki. Scroll down to about halfway of the page for the chapter Wireless configuration in rc.inet1.conf

    That's in KDE4 right? I'm not using it, so I don't really know. Try right-clicking at different places until you see something in the menu called [add panel]. Then you add to the panel these things: K-menu, system tray, pager and something I believe is called task manager.




    Another way is to login in textual modus, run
    Code:
    mv ~/.kde ~/kde.bak
    And login again. KDE will build a new profile. Your old profile is now in ~/kde.bak. Restore your old profile can be done by running that command in reverse (also in textual mode):
    Code:
    mv ~/kde.bak ~/.kde
    Or you can just delete it.
