Using NetworkManager under WindowMaker
 
distro:Fedora core 8 , Window Maker installed from tarball-source.

As the title say, I'd need to use Network Manager under Window Maker. More precisely I can't manage to connect using my wireless NIC despite the fact that the card's light turns on and I can start NM service and use nm-tool successfully; naturally I already managed to connect via wireless under GNOME, using NM.

As for NM related programs, I've got that nm-applet fails to run and nm-* GUI configuration programs don't display any wireless connection, nor they let me add them as root.

<rant>
anyway, shouldn't that freaking NM service's functionalities be independent from the desktop environment you use???
</rant>

thanks

Yeah, but so far the only usable front-ends to the "functionalities" are on Gnome or KDE :)

Why couldn't you just use ndiswrapper, maybe trough a script?

and I'd like to have a CLI one* :(!

I'm going to disable NM on the wireless nic if I can't manage to achieve the connection, of course; anyway I've found some hints for a simple (maybe) script using python and dbus API , which I never used btw...


* isn't it strange that a system service hasn't got a cli-interface in Linux? Where are we going :eek:?
