Window-maker + ubuntu


Hello!

I just installed Window-maker to ubuntu 9.10. With ubuntu it was really easy to get the internet connection working. It was just add the mobile Huawei nm-connection-editor and everything started working. But how do you get internet to work with window-maker? Never used any other window managers then gnome before.

1) Use the terminal to open the same application.
2) Right click on the menu, going through it until you see the application you need. Look in System or Network.

Started nm-connection-editor in terminal instead but it doesnt still connect. Can it be something with NetworkManager? Couldnt start that one... But it is installed and ps -A | grep Network shows that it is running. But I cant get any graphic interface with it.

EDIT:
Same problem with Fluxbox...


Is there anyway to manually disconnect and connect to internet with fluxbox or windowmaker?
