3g

Has anybody managed to set up 3g connectivity? When I click on the broadband connection icon, I'm getting two warnings, but nothing happens:

(nm-applet:2719): Warning: **: _nm_object_get_property: Error getting 'State' for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/2: Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist
(same for 'Default')

nm-tool reports:

- Device: tts/USB0
  Type: Mobile Broadband (GSM)
  Driver: option
  State: disconnected
  Default: no
  Capabilities
      Supported: yes

any ideas?

GNOME 3 and nm-applet

Looks like GNOME 3 doesn't need nm-applet any more. Moreover, it competes with the shell's network agent for new connections. Does anyone copy this? Should this be mentioned on the page?

PolicyKit and permission error

I used to get a permission error even after adding the ck-launch-session stuff. What fixed it (I suppose, I changed more, but that may be it) was to do "ck-launch-session dbus-launch openbox". Maybe this could be added to the PolicyKit section by someone (or someone approves it and I do, don't wanna screw up wiki with useless info).


Hostname_problems Entry

Isn't the suggested solution a little bit overkill? (Revert to using dhcpcd with NetworkManager) Also kind of assumes that dhclient is the problem. Which I do not believe to be the case. Rather then switch back to dhcpcd you could just have dhclient push the hostname. A la "send host-name" in the dhclient.conf. Ortango (talk) 18:57, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
