Some nm-connection-editor *.ui files do not exist (impossible to set Wi-Fi Security settings in NM)


Hi. Noticed that i can't change "Wi-Fi Security" settings in nm-applet.
I launched nm-connection-editor in console and got following errors:

Code:
** (nm-connection-editor:2973): WARNING **: 21:29:38.531: Couldn't load UI builder resource /org/freedesktop/network-manager-applet/ws-wep-key.ui: The resource at ?/org/freedesktop/network-manager-applet/ws-wep-key.ui? does not exist

Also, as a result, newly created Wi-Fi hotspots (files in "system-connections" directory of NetworkManager) have "[wifi-security]" block missing.

Would be nice if it'll be fixed.
Thanks in advance.

PS: Slackware-current, 32-bit.

Have you done install-new with slackpkg recently? I'm guessing you're missing libnma.

Code:
Sat Mar  7 20:25:36 UTC 2020
xap/libnma-1.8.28-x86_64-1.txz:  Added.
  This is the NetworkManager GUI client library, which was previously
  provided by network-manager-applet. It's now a standalone project, and
  is required by network-manager-applet and other NetworkManager frontends.
xap/network-manager-applet-1.16.0-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This requires the new libnma package.

The files still exist in the network-manager-applet source, but aren't present in the final package. I wonder if this new version of network-manager-applet needs to be built with meson now to get the correct files in place.

Try this modified version of the network-manager-applet.SlackBuild that switches from autotools to meson (I have not been able to successfully run the SlackBuild because I'm not running -current and it fails against my 14.2 install -- it might still need a few tweaks):
