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')
- Device: tts/USB0 Type: Mobile Broadband (GSM) Driver: option State: disconnected Default: no
Capabilities Supported: yes
This section of the entry appears to be wrong.
The pacman install of networkmanager I tried does not install /etc/rc.d/networkmanager-dispatcher or any scripts in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d
I'm using networkmanager-0.7.0-1. Is this feature going to be added to the pacman install, or is the wiki entry just wrong?
- AFAIK there is not supposed to be any /etc/rc.d/networkmanager-dispatcher and as for the scripts in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/, you need to provide them yourself.
- Heres a suitable script for ntpdate that "wonder" posted in the forums:
#!/bin/bash case "$2" in up) if [ /etc/rc.d/ntpdate ]; then /etc/rc.d/ntpdate start fi ;; down) if [ /var/run/daemons/ntpdate ]; then /etc/rc.d/ntpdate stop fi ;; esac
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).
