"Not authorized to control networking"


Dear ZenWalkers,

I've now been upgrading my ZW machine at weekly intervals over the last few months or so, and with my latest system upgrade I got into troubles with the NetworkManager applet.

Specifically I'm only allowed hard-wired connectivity to the Internet, whereby any wi-fy option is greyed out and and would lead to a "Connection failure: (1)Not authorized to control networking" error message. This I have noticed also pops up at boot as fatal.

An approach like I've seen on a few Linux forums, revolving around issuing the command
Code:
sudo usermod -G netdev -a yourusername
is ineffective on my system.

Is there someone else who's been encountering this problem?

With many thanks in advance for any help you may have to give,


[EDIT:] the latest round of package upgrades seems to have addressed the issue. Sincere thanks to the package developers!

Erm... it appears that the problem re-presented itself through the latest (or close to) set of package upgrades. Has this issue been previously reported? Should I have to wait for another set pf network-related package upgrades?

Many thanks for your help,

i think you should start to troubleshoot the problem.
you haven't given ANY solid info so far, like all messages the updater spits out.
it is best to use a command line package management tool for this.
if that doesn't help, you need to look at logs.

disclaimer:
i don't use zenwalk myself. what's it based on?
