Perhaps you could start a blog for your rants...

1. KDE GUI for managing network connections

I use the CLI so I googled for the GUI and two solutions are proposed
on the net: installing gnome-network-manager or wicd.

2. Driver for AE1000

The Fedora url that you provide is one of your solutions (I would add
a "j" to the untar command but perhaps it works without it).

Some googling turns up some Ubuntu-specific urls.

Some googling also turns up that there is a kernel backport for your
problem. Search the repos for "backports".

Not nice... he's frustrated. We ALL get that way at times. To call his
problem a rant denigrates the OP and minimizes his problem. Ric

It's not nice for us to be subjected to a rant. When I reply to a list
email, the "to" field is "Kubuntu user technical support
<kubuntu-users@lists.ubuntu.com>" and not "Kubuntu user
rant-alleviation support <kubuntu-users@lists.ubuntu.com>".

It would have been infinitely better for him to say, less succinctly
but in this vein:

KDE's network manager is badly documented - and perhaps not as
well-performing as it ought to be - and the only way that my USB wifi
card seems to be usable is through the compilation of its driver.

Sure it would! I agree. But it's not likely to happen like that when
someone is beating their brains out, getting all hot under the collar
and a rant ensues when the documentation is so poor that he has to
scurry hither and yon to dig up 2nd and 3rd party answers that he
may/may not trust off of the net. Heck, that's just being human. At
least he didn't use cuss words. Man pages are getting sparse. They used
to have pages of information AND examples. I'm not seeing that much
nowadays. <grins> Ric
