NetworkManager applet

I've upgraded to slackware-current, and I'm trying to setup a working environment using the new XFCE 4.10.
At the moment I've got a problem with nm-applet.

It show up correctly in the notification panel and I'm able to use it with both wired/wireless/broadband connections. Unluckily I cannot manage (enable/disable) wireless and/or other netwotk devices as a normal user (I can do as root).

I've looked around, but I cannot find any valid solution... someone has any idea to share with me?

Judging by this thread:

you may need to run xwmconfig and reselect xfce in order to properly launch consolekit.

Yep, mrclisdue is right (and thanks to ponce for pointing out the new --with-ck-launch option.) Personally though I maintain my own .xinitrc-{kde,xfce,fluxbox} which I symlink .xinitrc to, and each of them has something like this (e.g. for XFCE:)

. ~/.xsession
# some more customization inserted here (env vars, xinput, etc.)
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.xfce

Thank you... but I think my problem is elsewhere... slim is already handling the ConsoleKit integration stuff, in fact I can show the applet in the notification area with my own account. I get only denied to wakeup/shutdown wireless/cable network devices using the right-click menu (and only using not-root accounts).

Anyway I'll give xwmconfig a try... but I think the problem is elsewhere in some policy right related question that I don't know
