With the wifi, I would like to run without the actual 003-lxde or 003-kde which leaves me with the openbox environment. Installing networkmanager (the NetworkManager version of manjaro) nm-applet will result in a message of conflict between networkmanager and networkmanager-consolekit 1.0.8-2.
I believe I placed networkmanager-consolekit in 001 so you could get a network connection without any GUI. Included in that is nmtui-connect which starts an ncurses wireless connect dialog. Make sure networkmanager is running before.
