network-manager-gnome in fvwm2


Heres the deal, I am trying to use my old laptop here at college as my programming laptop. I use fvwm2 on this laptop (It's just my favorite WM and extremely fun to play with) and I usually use wicd as my network manager. However, the wireless at my college uses wp2 with peap authentication (no certificate). I have had luck with this in wicd, but for some reason, it just fails every time. The only way I can get this computer online using wireless is to use network-manager-gnome, however, I don't know hot to get a "notification area" in fvwm (like in xfce or gnome) to use the applet.

So how would I get network-manager-gnome to work in fvwm?

Also, if anyone has hints on getting wicd to work, please do state. I've already deleted all mentions of Certificate in the wpa-peap template.

I haven't used either in a long time, but FVWM-Crystal has a notification area IIRC. Maybe you can see how FVWM-C does it and go from there.

Try the following:

Code:
[root@debian:~]# apt-get install nm-applet

Kenny_Strawn: I did that but I couldn't find the applet. I just gave up so I installed xfce4-panel and put a little auto-hide panel on the side of my screen with only a notification area.

Just another option. While browsing the repos for Squeeze, I found something called "stalonetray":

stalonetray is an implementation of system tray application (aka
notificaton area) according to freedesktop.org specification; support
for KDE icons included.

stalonetray is a stand-alone system tray (notification area) for X
Window System/X11 (e.g. X.Org or XFree 86). It has full XEMBED
support and minimal dependencies: an X11 lib only. Stalonetray works
with virtually any EWMH-compliant window manager.

Window managers that are reported to work well with stalonetray:
- FVWM
- OpenBox
- Enlightenment
- ion3
