olsrd/gui/linux-gtk does not (yet) understand the LQ extensions AFAIK.

thanks for the report.
As said, since that was not used to my knowledge in the funkfeuer/
freifunk networks where most current developers are situated,
probably not so much attention was given to
the secure plugin as well as the linux-gtk GUI. The linux GTK GUI is
missing the LQ parsing code.
We usually take different packages for visualizing the network:
dot_draw, http_info or txtinfo plugin. These are usually more
practical although for sure not yet perfect.
I hope the explanation helped.
Patches are of course - as always welcome
(BTW: mille gracias Alina!! - just reading thru the v6 patch now...
(and bernd was faster ) :)))
