I can't find a Wireless Network Manager in Arch


Hello,

Network-Manager-Applet isn't present in my install of Arch. I installed nm-applet and this is the error:

[root@darkstar wicd]# nm-applet
**
GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted

I can't get wicd-client working ether. This is the output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/wicd/gtk/wicd-client.py", line 63, in <module>
from wicd import dbusmanager
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wicd/dbusmanager.py", line 93, in <module>
DBUS_MANAGER = DBusManager()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wicd/dbusmanager.py", line 57, in __init__
self._bus = dbus.SystemBus()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/_dbus.py", line 202, in __new__
private=private)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/_dbus.py", line 108, in __new__
bus = BusConnection.__new__(subclass, bus_type, mainloop=mainloop)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/bus.py", line 125, in __new__
bus = cls._new_for_bus(address_or_type, mainloop=mainloop)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.FileNotFound: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory

Any Help? Thanks

Did you install them both? If so, that may be your problem. They'll conflict with each other since both of them have a service that runs at startup. Try stopping one and then restarting the other. I prefer wicd myself.

Yea, I installed them both. How would I disable one of them?

Temporarily just to see if they're conflicting, you can just /etc/rc.d/<whichever> stop then /etc/rc.d/<the other> restart and launch it's corresponding frontend to see if it works then. If one/both does work with having the other service stopped, uninstall whichever one doesn't work for you or whichever one you simply prefer less. No point in having them both installed.
