ndisgtk can't configure wireless network in kde

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ndisgtk

Using the latest ndiswrapper and ndisgtk for Feisty.
I'm able to add the "windows" network adapter by clicking on the <Install New Driver> button in the ndiskgtk dialog.
When I click on <Configure Network> nothing happens. I closed ndiskgtk and opened it from Konsole.
If I then click <Configure Network> an error is displayed:
sh: network-admin: not found
I've not been able to locate a package by that name.
The following ndis packages are installed:
ndisgtk 0.6-0ubuntu1
ndiswrapper-common 1.30-1ubuntu1
ndiswrapper-utils 1.1-5
ndiswrapperutils-1.1 1.1-5

You seem to be using Kubuntu. The button opens a Gnome application which is not shipped by Kubuntu (gnome-system-tools).

You can configure your wlan interface with kde tools.

How do other apps deal with such issues? What about greying out or hiding the button if network-admin isn't installed?

 One .desktop file for kde where we call the program with --kde
 The other file for non-kde

Since I'm upstream now, I will fix this upstream tomorrow.

0.7.1-3ubuntu1 adds ndisgtk-kde.desktop, which calls ndisgtk with the --kde argument
