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

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).
