Fedora Networking :: Where To Get Networkmanager Gnome Applet
Feb 5, 2009
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...
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.
The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:
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.
Is there a way of wireless networking without using the Gnome NetworkManager Applet? I want to connect to the Internet using a USB 3G modem and connect to wifi without knowing all of the details of every network.Network manager is pretty good but there seems to be no way of using it without starting an X session and it doesn't play nice with any other networking tool and reminds me too much of a Microsoft application.
Is there any easy way to replace the default Gnome NetworkManager used by Ubuntu with Mandriva Net-Applet? Although I prefer Ubuntu, overall, I have had better luck with video streaming, browser speed, and consistency when using Mandriva (with iPV6 disabled).
I just upgraded (as a fresh install) to Fedora 13. In so doing I kept the old /home partition. My NetwokrManager Applet is missing from the top bar. But if I login instead as a different user, then it is there. When I did the install, I had to create a (new) user as part of the process. The old passwd file had two users, one called admin, and the other myself. I logged in initially as the new user, and created the admin user keeping the same home directory, user ID and group ID. I then logged out, logged in again as admin, and removed the new user. I then added myself as a user keeping the same home directory, and user and group IDs.. For some reason admin has the applet but I don't. I also don't see how to add it except as a custom laucher using nm-applet, and that didn't seem to work.
My networking seems to be OK but when any changes are made the NetworkManager Applet 0.7.996 (I think) in the panel pops up a small window ~ 300*80 pixels which displays some faint coloured lines and dotted lines where, presumably, there should be a message of some form. How can I configure it to get the message?
I have accidently removed the nm-applet icon fron the panel .How can I restore the icon back on the upper panel? The nm-applet is running but without the icon appearing on the panel.In the startup application --> I edited it back to /usr/bin/nm-applet but it won't appear on the panel
I use network manager applet 0.7.1. I had set the automatic wireless connection to my my wireless network (WPA key secured). Recently, I get the following problem: At the automatic connection, I get the message: Network manager applet (/usr/bin/mn-applet) needs default keyering. As I don't know what it is to type it and then, deny or OK, it doesn't get connected to my wireless network.
I cant use the option "export" from the VPN settings in the Gnome Network Manager, when I tried to export a popup says "Unknown error"This happend also in 11.3 and now in 11.4, so it is a nm-applet problema I think... Is there any other way to export my VPN connections?
Just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and I have to say it feels great.Only gripe I currently have is the NetworkManager that is starting up very slowly. When I have logged into KDE KNetworkManager applet says that NetworkManager is not running and hence I have no network connection. This is fixed if I start NetworkManager (as root) or just wait a couple of minutes. I have one ethernet interface only, no wireless
Ubuntu has a pair of packages called indicator-applet and indicator-applet-session.
The latter (-session) applet is what shows your user name on the panel (like the switch users applet in Fedora), but it also shows an icon representing your current status in Pidgin, and clicking the applet lets you change your status in Pidgin as well as log out or switch users.
indicator-applet in Ubuntu 9.10 sits by default next to the notification area and shows an e-mail icon, and allegedly is supposed to tell you how many unread messages you have in your e-mail client. I've never configured my e-mail in Ubuntu as I rarely use that OS so I can't say for sure.
Is it feasible to get these applets ported over to Fedora? Would a deb-to-rpm converter work, or would there be a nightmare of dependency issues since these applets seem to be something Canonical made themselves and that's why only Ubuntu has them?
It simply doesn't work. No matter what city I put there (I even tried putting American cities) the applet just widens a bit to the left and shows nothing. Doing some searches, I learned the protocol it uses is called METAR, the data is provided by airports, and the list of locations is at:[URL]..
But this file doesn't exist! What exists is:[URL].. And that one only has American cities. But, as I said, not even American cities work. Where should I start looking?
A fresh installation of ubuntu 9.10 stopped my DSL internet connection. sudo pppoeconf solved the problem of net, but NetworkManager applet in panel now not working. it says wired networks, device not managed.
I'd like to have two gnome clock applets, one with the regular default time and date in the upper right hand corner (the default) and another set to epoch time. However, I can't figure out how to set the second gnome clock applet to display the epoch time. I'm running FC12.
I'm experiencing a strange problem with GNOME Clock on Fedora 13. When the applet is in the bottom panel, and I click on the clock, the popup display appears at the top of the screen rather than at the bottom of the screen (above the bottom panel) as would be expected. Worse, the display appears higher than would be expected had the clock been on the top panel, meaning the display is cutoff (ie, the display goes off the top of the screen). I've tried playing with my .gconf files, and removing and re-adding the GNOME Clock applet, but nothing has worked. I'm not sure if this is a weird quirk particular to my settings, or a more general bug; can readers here check to see if the behavior I've described occurs if the Clock applet is added to the bottom panel?
can anyone please tell me which package provides the gnome system monitor applet (the one which can display cpu load and disk I/O in the tray)?I run XFCE on F14/x64 and would like to display it using the XfApplet.
What i've tried already: *) Installed the "GNOME Desktop Environment" --> Nothing changed *) did a yum provides "/usr/lib64/bonobo/servers/*" to check which packages are providing applets - didn't found anything which sounds like the system monitor applet
The XfApplet shows up a bunch of available applets but not the system monitor ...
I am trying to play sounds via : sound applet on gnome taskbar, right click: sound prefs, sound vol is set via applet at say 45%, yet I can't hear the alert sounds I am pressing such as, glass & sonar, is this common with pulse atm or a combo of that and my onboard realtek ac-97 sound chip?
Is there any method to add a location to the list in the gnome weather applet/clock ? [EDIT] To be more precise: my location is not there, how to extend the list with my location so I could have weather displayed for my city
I'm running Squeeze and I'm looking 3 days now for a solution in some weird problem. The NetworkManager Applet shows that there isn't connection although I am connected. The icon has this small "x" and when mouseover it says "No network conncection". Moreover when left clicking it, it says
"Wired Network Device not managed"
While I was looking for the solution a came across this post by an Ubuntu developer who says:network-manager-applet displays the connectivity state of network-manager's managed interfaces not every interface. So the title "network manager says disconnected but is connected and working" is actually misleading. The interface is connected and working but not from network-manager's point of view since it is not managing the interface. Additionally, in Lucid now network-manager applet displays nothing now for non-managed interfaces so is less misleading. You can check to see whether or not an interface is managed by network-manager by using the command line too nm-tool. You'll see "State: unmanaged" for unmanaged interfaces.
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.
