SOLVED: networkmanager and nm-applet not functioning

Post#1 by francois » 28 Oct 2015, 01:01

Intalling network manager and nm-applet on a kde5-plasma installation:
root ~ # pman -S NetworkManager network-manager-applet
root ~ # nm-applet

I get the following error:

Code: Select all

root ~ # nm-applet
^Cnm-applet-Message: PID 0 (we are 1228) sent signal 2, shutting down...
root ~ # NetworkManager
root ~ # nm-applet
^Cnm-applet-Message: PID 0 (we are 1256) sent signal 2, shutting down...

(nm-applet:1256): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 69 was not found when attempting to remove it
root ~ #

It seems that what is needed is plasma-nm instead of network-manager-applet

To get the plasm-nm working:

Intalling network manager and nm-applet on a kde5-plasma installation:

Code: Select all

root ~ # pman -S NetworkManager plasma-nm
root ~ # systemctl stop dhcpcd (you'll lost connection here)
root ~ # systemctl disable dhcpcd
root ~ # systemctl enable NetworkManager
root ~ # systemctl start NetworkManager
To get wifi on make sure that the hardware wifi is activated with the appropriate keyboard keys and right click on nm panel icon to activate at the top the wifi icon to have access to surrounding wifi networks.

Hi francois

Is this post only about network for wifi with KDE?

if not I might look to see what your last code box does on LXDE

It works also for lxde when you do what is proposed in the first post which works for lxde and not for kde5 plasma.

For xfce you need to add the xfce-notifyd in addition to network-manager-applet:
