Assigning to QA,


Our current release doesn't start anymore from the menu entry.
This update fixes this issue switching the gui start from consolehelper to polkit agent.

MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No installation issues.
Started wifi-radar from menu, asks root password, then shows all Wifi connections in my neighbourhood with the channels these are using. Looks the same as I get with inssider on Win10.
OK for me.

Sounds like Wifi Analyzer on my Android tablet. Cool.

Validating. Advisory in Comment 1.
