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?


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
      Supported: yes

any ideas?


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:

case "$2" in
               if [ /etc/rc.d/ntpdate ]; then
                  /etc/rc.d/ntpdate start
               if [ /var/run/daemons/ntpdate ]; then
                       /etc/rc.d/ntpdate stop

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).
