Hi there

I wanted to send this email this morning but I had a lot of work.

Yesterday I found the problem. There is a problem (and I think there is 
a bug opened in Ubuntu system) with the ppp protocol and the KDE 
applications when the KNetworkManager is alive( if you try to surf in 
the net using Firefox ok, if you try it with konquerror problem...kill 
knetworkmanager process and Konqueror will surf ok), so if you kill this 
process, all KDE apps will work correctly (I hope I could avoid people 
spend three hours in front of a workstation with kppp internet 
connection (it sucks).

You can detect if this is your problem because no KDE app works with 
internet except kopete using the Jabber connector.


Best regards
