Fluxbox & nm-applet fix


As Pat mentions in the latest Changelog, there are still some issues with wm's like fluxbox and dbus/polkit that prevent the user from making adjustments to nm-applet. I found this solution.

Create the following polkit file:

/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/10-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pkla:

[nm-applet]
Identity=unix-group:netdev
Action=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.*
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes

Assuming the user is in the "netdev" group then the user can make changes to nm-applet in fluxbox etc.
