Subject: [gentoo-user] Using KDE networkmanagement applet with systemd??
Date: Mon, 04 Feb 2013 11:27:00
1 Hi all,
2 I'm wondering if it is possible to get the KDE network management
3 (system tray) applet to work properly on my laptop. I'm using the Gentoo
4 systemd overlay and KDE 4.9.5.
6 $ emerge -pv networkmanager network management
7 [ebuild R ~] net-misc/networkmanager- USE="avahi dhcpcd doc
8 gnutls introspection modemmanager ppp systemd wext -bluetooth
9 -connection-sharing -consolekit -dhclient -nss -resolvconf -vala -wimax"
10 0 kB
11 [ebuild R ~] kde-misc/network management- USE="(-aqua) -debug"
12 LINGUAS="-ar -ca -cs -da -de -el -es -et -fa -fi -fr -ga -hu -it -ja -kk
13 -km -lt -nb -nds -nl -nn -pl -pt -pt_BR -ro -ru -se -sk -sr
14 -sr@ijekavian -sr@ijekavianlatin -sr@latin -sv -tr -uk -zh_TW" 1,298 kB
16 Currently the tray applet starts but can't "see" the systemd enabled
17 NetworkManager service - the service is definitely working though...
18 $ systemctl status NetworkManager.service
19 NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
20 Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib64/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled)
21 Active: active (running) since Mon 2013-02-04 10:35:19 GMT; 43min ago
22 Main PID: 4849 (NetworkManager)
23 CGroup: name=systemd:/system/NetworkManager.service
24 ├─4849 /usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon
25 └─4908 /sbin/dhcpcd -B -K -L -G -c /usr/libexec/nm-dhcp-client.action eth0
27 I click on the KDE network management system tray icon and the popup
28 window says "Network Manager is not working. Please start it."
30 Clearly should work - as it does on ARCH, Chakra, OpenSUSE, Mageia and
31 Rosa distros!! Not really a big deal but it would be nice to fix it :-)
33 Any thoughts??
35 Thanks
36 Bob
