Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Does Not Come Up In GNOME
Nov 25, 2009
I have no problems seeing the networks available and connecting to a network in KDE. But there is no network manager in GNOME. I might have messed up with the settings earlier. What I can do though is run knetwork manager every time I start up (or add it to start up programs). But that opens up the KDE wallet which would rather avoid.I am thinking I need to install something related to NetowrkManager.
after fiddling around with compiz-fusion and KDE, my network suddenly disappeared. I looked in the package manager and apparently I don't have the gnome applet for networkmanager...but everything else I seem to have (the git version not svc or w/e) Anyone know if installing the applet will let me choose my wireless network and connect to it? Right now I think so, but what I have to do is boot into windows, find the package on the web and download it, then boot into fedora and install it
where I can find the fedora 10 networkmanager-gnome package (git version for x86_64)? I looked around and found the svc version and a git version for i386, but my OS is x86_64 and I couldn't find any git versions of it for 64-bit fedora's. btw, I have no idea what git and svc mean, but when I tried to install the svc version, it told me I had to install svc versions for all the other networkmanager packages...
if the NetworkManager uses wpa_supplicant? I normally dont use NetworkManager and decided to try it. I started it and tried it out and it works with WEP and WPA! I cant figure out why using the iwconfig command is not working by itself for WEP. WPA working with NetworkManager is just a bonus though.
I'm an inordinate amount of trouble getting F15 to run without NetworkManager. If I boot with the NetworkManager service enabled, my NIC presents as expected at /dev/eth0 (I'm using biosdevname=0). However, when I stop the NetworkManager service, /dev/eth0 disappears from the filesystem.If I boot without NetworkManager enabled, /dev/eth0 is never created. Reviewing dmesg, udev is loading an ethernet driver.
I recently installed F10 x86_64 on my Lenovo T61 laptop, and while I'm quite pleased with F10, I am having a difficult time with my wireless card. I spent most of yesterday searching for a solution, but none have presented themselves. Scenario: I am trying to connect to a HIDDEN SSID with NO ENCRYPTION (work Wifi, don't ask) using network-manager and its associated applet.
Symptoms: I left-click on NetworkManager, select "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", enter my information, NetworkManager does a few things, and finally I'm told that NetworkManager cannot connect to my network.
I have just installed Fedora 10 on an old laptop and was quite impressed with how smoothly it all went ... until it came to setting up networking!
I have battled for three days now and I'm almost there; - installed updated firmware to the built in Broadcom 4306 wireless network adapter - got NetworkManager to work with a static ip address by manually editing the ifcfg-wlan0 file - managed to get the WPA security to work
The only problem I am left with is that there is no default route; if I set one up using: ip r a default via 10.1.1.1 dev wlan0
Then everything starts working.
If I try to add routes using the NetworkManager gui interface they dont get saved (no suprises there then! ).
I have tried creating a route-wlan0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ but this seems to be ignored by NetworkManager.
Since the NetworkManager GUI is almost useless, does anyone know if there are any other configuration files I can manually modify to get a default route set?
Just upgraded from Fedora 10 to 11 and cannot setup wireless connection via NetworkManager. By some reason it doesn't store WPA key. There are following errors in the message log:
Code: Aug 14 14:37:05 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> connection_get_settings_cb(): connection_get_settings_cb: Invalid connection: 'NMSettingConnection' / 'uuid' invalid: 1 Aug 14 14:37:11 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> wait_for_connection_expired(): Connection (2) /org/freedesktop/NetworkManagerSettings/2 failed to activate (timeout): (0) Connection was not provided by any settings service
I upgraded from F14 to F15 using the DVD. The network worked fine after the upgrade.This morning I updated to the latest RPMs and rebooted, and now the network donot work!ifconfig shows only the lo interface. NetworkManager does not start, /var/log/messages shows signal 11.I tried to boot with the original kernel, but the results are the same.
I just updated my Fedora 10 installation with the latest NetworkManager (NetworkManager-0.7.0.99-4.git20090324.fc10.i386) and now my NetworkManager fails to start. The output in the /var/log/messages is
Kinda fed up with NetworkManager. Since trying the betas of F11 on my laptop, i've had endless bad experience with it.
Installed version: 0.7.1
Aside from the description below, please let me know what detailed system info you want to see (specific commands appreciated).
When i log in, the applet loads. However, it doesn't connect to the last Wifi connection i used. My SSID is hidden, so i click on the applet and choose "Connect to hidden wireless network". i see my stored connection in the drop-list. i select it, and all fields are greyed out, the WPA key is blank, and the Connect button is disabled.
Leaving that dialog, i delete my stored connection and re-create it manually, setting all the information correctly. i have DSL, using my DSL modem in bridging mode, and for some reason NetworkManager doesn't retrieve the DNS entries from the modem, whereas Windows does. So i have to set the connection to "DHCP (Address Only)" and manually add the IPs for my DNS.
However, the connection doesn't initiate, so i click the applet again and attempt again to connect to my hidden SSID, using the newly created profile. Same problem: no WPA key, all boxed disabled, and Connect also disabled.
The ONLY way i can get this thing to connect is by deleting my stored connection, clicking to connect to a hidden SSID, and create the connection from the New dialog. However, then i still have to go into Edit Connections and set the DHCP and DNS correcly before i can reach outside.
This is ridiculous, and i haven't been messing with any other configuration. i had a thread when F11 was still in beta where i had inconsistent results with NetworkManager. After thinking i got it fixed with some help, and discovering it wasn't, i decided to wait for the final release to see if it would work any better.
(automatically connect to the last active connection), consistently (connects when it loads at login every time), Otherwise, if there's a different connection manager, i'm open to that as well. Especially if the alternate connection manager can automatically retrieve DNS settings the way Windows can.
I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .
If I use DHCP, everything works fine:
However, if I try to give myself a static IP,
(I also never understood why the DNS server should not be the real dns server address (some external ip) rather than the router's address? but that is what gets set automatically when using DHCP)
So using manual, it connects, but then the internet doesn't work. The only difference I see when I go to "connection information" when connected with dhcp vs manual is in dhcp mode there is a "default route: 192.168.0.1". Is that the problem? How do I set this "default route" / what is it?
I'm looking for some information on setting up a VPN client through Networkmanager in Gnome. My company uses a Sonicwall VPN server, and I'm having trouble getting my F11 laptop to connect. I've tried OpenS/WAN with no luck, and stumbled across Networkmanager's VPN setup. I can choose Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc) which says it's compatible with Sonicwall IPSec-based VPNs. Is there a how-to I can check out, or has someone else got this setup to work?
The card is recognized by System--admin--network as the correct card (BCM43XG) and assigned eth1. However, NetworkManager shows no wireless network. I have a great signal on the same machine if I boot into a Windows partition.
I'm so sorry to bother people, but I'm totally at a loss.I've searched the forum and have not found the answer.My NetworkManager icon is missing from the notification bar. Ive tried rt clicking on the top panel >add to pannel>notification area....yet it is still missing.I know that NetworkManager is installed, yet I cant even access it to connect to a wireless network. I'm able to connect to Eth0.I cant tell if my wireless card drivers are setup or not and if that makes a difference.
I have just installed Fedora 13 on my Lenovo Ideapad S12 (company laptop, evaluating Fedora for companywide use on all laptops) and a facing a weird problem with KDE4 and NetworkManager / knetworkmanager. The laptops wifi card is a Broadcom BCM4312 and I have successfully extracted the necessary b43 firmware. The b43 module loads on boot and the wireless card is activated and ready to use. However, NetworkManager doesn't seem to agree and has wireless disabled by default every time I reboot or even logout / login. I have to check the box manually after which it automatically connects to my wifi network at home.
Any idea where I can check that box automatically on boot?
I'm on F14 and can't seem to get NetworkManager to behave. I seem to remember being able to start my machine and see my static address configured right after boot. For some reason, that's no longer the case. When I finish a boot, I'm not getting any address until I log in. I've tried editing the ifcfg-eth0 both by hand and by the system-config-network. I've played with the "Available to all users" checkbox on both the nm config applet as well as the system-config-network gui. I can't seem to get it to behave predictably and give me my static without having to be in a gnome session.
Here's my ifcfg-eth0 from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
I'm using Fedora 15 with KDE, and in the NetworkManager settings I can't set my Ethernet connection to be a System Connection. The box is greyed out. I assume only root can enable this option, but GUI apps typically ask for an administrator password. I did add my user to the "Administrator" group when I installed and I can use sudo and all that.
how nobody else could have run into this in the meantime. [URL] Two friends of mine are having the same issue on Ubuntu-11.4-machines. In short: Connecting to the Cisco-VPN via shell-command "vpnc" works flawlessly, whereas NetworkManager just doesn't connect at all. We had this working in older versions of Fedora/Ubuntu about some months ago...
I have a Mobile Broadband connection (as NetworkManager calls it) that works very well until the latest update. Now it fails to connect 99.9% of the time. When it does connect it works very sluggishly.
I didn't update a second computer I have and it still works fine here. Both run F10 x86_64, both are fully updated (except for NM on this one).
Output of grep NetworkManager /var/log/messages | tail -100 from non working machine code...
I just installed F10 from a Live download iso on a Sony VAIO laptop with an Intel PRO/Wireless LAN2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter. The linux driver is ipw2100 and functions without problems.
After the install I accepted the update downloads offer and downloaded somewhere around 170 updates. The kernel version is 220.127.116.11-170.2.35.fc10.i686.
I am using a Linksys WRT55AG as a DHCP server. Using NetworkManger it assigns IP addresses without incident.
My problem is that I can't get name resolution to function without manual intervention.
I can ping other wireless nodes on my network and the response to $ dig -q www.yahoo.com is: ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 30153
The /etc/resolv.conf file contains no entry for 'nameserver=' and if I manually edit /etc/resolv.conf, it is overwritten on reboot or restarting the NetworkManager service. I am aware of /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/resolv.conf.
Additionally, in the var/log/messages file I can see that NetworkManager makes links between /etc/resolv.conf and the default version.
However, after either rebooting or restarting the NetworkManager service, if I manually enter a DNS address 192.168.1.1 (my wireless router) under the DNS tab of the system-config-network 1.5.95 application. This address does not persist after either rebooting or restarting NetworkManager.
If I disable NetworkManager, I can't get the WRT55AG to assign the wilreless adapter an IP address.
So the bottom line and my question is what do I need to do in order to simply boot and have wireless connectivity?
To what file does system-config-network 1.5.95 write the DNS address entered from it's GUI?
I have a FC10 installation with GNOME and NetworkManager and a wireless card. Everything works ok. However, when I try and setup gdm to do autologon I get the NetworkManager applet asking for the password for the gnome-keyring to get the wireless details. Since I want to use this machine as a sever this is unacceptable as I won't be around to type in the password. I tried the solution at [URL] but this does not work. I still get the password being requested and the keyring password is the same as the logon password. Can anyone say if there is a workaround that works to get the NetworkManager to be able to read the gnome keyring without having to prompt me for it.
does anyone know a way to disable those annoying NM 0.7.1 popup balloons in F11 (KDE)? The ones that say that it is now connected to the wired eth0 network for example? I would really like to get rid of those ugly GTK notifications in KDE, but the NM GUI doesn't seem to have an option for this?!
