    ///////////////////////////////////EDIT///////////////////////
    I have heard that there is a wireless package that lets you user lwconfig..... that may do it... but i dont know.

    So iwlist is in /sbin.
    As which user did you try to run KWiFiManager? What'S the output of
    Code:
    echo $PATH
    for that user?

    i ran it for [david@localhost]

    the out out is
    Code:
    [david@localhost ~]$ echo $PATH
    /opt/jre1.5.0_06/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/opt/jre1.5.0_06/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/david/bin
    [CODE] 
    
    There is only one user [me]

    Try for example
    Code:
    ln -s /sbin/iwlist /usr/bin/iwlist
    The error should then be gone.

    That command fixed that error thank you! But now i get even more interesting errors. The program doesnt find an access point and the ip adress is unavaliable, but when i scan it says that no networks are avaliable, regardless that my dad is using wireless internet upstairs and the router is next to me. My drivers are properly installed and when i try to accoustic scan i get these errors.

    these are the errors:
