Thread: nm-applet in XFC

    Default nm-applet in XFC

    Hi.

    I'm running openSUSE 12.1 with XFCE. So far my network setup is done by ifup. However, I would like to switch to NetworkManager.

    When I try to run `nm-applet` I get the following output:

    Code:
    $ nm-applet
    ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
    
    ** (nm-applet:18544): WARNING **: get_all_cb: couldn't retrieve system settings properties: (32) Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' for details..
    ** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area
    
    ** (nm-applet:18544): WARNING **: fetch_connections_done: error fetching connections: (32) Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' for details..

    ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
    ^C** Message: PID 0 (we are 18544) sent signal 2, shutting down...
    The output of `systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service` is:

    Code:
    $ systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service
    dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service
    	  Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
    	  Active: inactive (dead)
    The applet doesn't appear in the notification area.

    What can I do to make nm-applet run?

    Thanks!

    Did you make the necessary changes in Yast - Network - Networksettings, i.e. make the change from ifup -> Networkmanager ? If not do so, and the nm-applet should show up.

    Yes, that was the first thing I tried.

    During the setup a dialog pops up and prompts:

    Applet needed

    NetworkManager is controlled by desktop applet
    (knetworkmanager for KDE and nm-applet for GNOME).
    Be sure it's running and if not, start it manually.
    When I run nm-applet on the command-line and press OK the following output appears in the terminal:

    Code:
    $ nm-applet
    ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area

    When Yast is done an error message pops up:

    Error

    No network running
    Then, the network is dead. And can only be revived by setting network back to the ifup method.

    Did you try a reboot inbetween? I.e. set the network to use the networkmanager, then reboot ?

    Duh I didn't think of that. Okay, with a reboot it works. Thanks for pointing me there.

    Might be a good idea to add that info to the applet needed dialog.

    It is an issue. IMHO a change in handling of the network should not require a reboot, just a "rcnetwork restart" or the systemd equivalent. Recently I had to handle some laptops where the same thing happened, no network restart unless after a reboot.
    But......glad it's solved, have fun
