Hello guys
1)a.-The kismet newcore preinstalled in my backtrack 4 final release doesnt have the file kismet_ui.conf in nowhere :eek:.
I looked this file whit

[code]#locate kismet_ui.conf
/pentest/wireless/kismet-newcore/kismet-devel/man/kismet_ui.conf.5
/pentest/wireless/kismet-newcore/kismet-devel/man/.svn/text-base/kismet_ui.conf.5.svn-base
/pentest/wireless/kismet-newcore/man/kismet_ui.conf.5
/pentest/wireless/kismet-newcore/man/.svn/text-base/kismet_ui.conf.5.svn-base[/code]

but "kismet_ui.conf.5" and "kismet_ui.conf.5.svn-base" are just help files.

b.-also i looked that file in
[code]/usr/etc
and
/usr/local/etc[/code]

whith no results

2) I have noticed that after close the kismet, a file its created in the path
~# .kismet/kismet_ui.conf
After edit that file nothing happens therefore i think that file is one that use kismet just to show info about the configuration of windows panels. But not the realy kismet_ui.conf file.

3) a.-Thats wath i get when use ./configure

b.-i also used ./configure in the path /pentest/wireless/kismet-newcore/kismet-devel/
and whit the last kismet stable release and kismet devel from the official page of kismet

c.- i noticed that the file kismet_ui.conf is not in the output of ./configure. At this point i think the problem is abouth missing files.

4)Finally the question is how can i solve this problem any suggestion?
i need edit that file to configure the panels and other advance features in kismet. Thanks for your time.
