Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

I'm configuring a very minimal Arch install on a relatively older laptop, and I'm a little hazy about how Networkmanager keeps all the wireless keys.  I simply installed Networkmanager and the hicolor and gnome icons, put networkmanager in the DAEMONS=() array in /etc/rc.conf, and put "exec nm-applet &" in my ~/.xinitrc before starting fluxbox.  It works great, but every time I start X, it asks for the network key I'm associating to every time.  Does Networkmanager use PAM for anything perhaps?  What should I do to properly configure Networkmanager to run in a minimalist environment like fluxbox?

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

Assuming you mean the keyring password, not the wireless passphrase: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Net … fter_login

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

Thank you for your reply!  I haven't been asked about the gnome-keyring password.  Every time X starts (nm-applet launches with it via ~/.xinitrc), I have to manually enter WEP or WPA keys to connect.

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

hi,

i had a similiar problem but I'm not sure if you will be comftable with my solution: I login via SLiM and followed the NM wiki (http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Networkmanager). Look after section  Automatically unlock keyring after login and edit /etc/pam.d/slim (instead of /etc/pam.d/gdm).

I have no clue if there is any better solutin, but it worked smoothly for me.

cheers

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

Just curious, are you dedicated to NetworkManager in any way.  IMHO, netcfg is a very simplistic network manager done in the Arch way and wireless is handled easily by network profiles.  http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_Profiles

Just a suggestion. smile

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

I made a little install on a USB flash drive and I'm having these problems again.  I'm not sure what I did to resolve them on my other machines.  I know that checking the box for "Available to all users" fixes this, but it is grayed (greyed, for people searching wink) out.  This checkbox appaears after right-clicking the system tray icon, clicking "Edit Connections," clicking "Wireless," clicking on the connection, and lastly, clicking "Edit" (the checkbox is at the bottom of the dialog box).  I suppose that this problem is related to the gnome-keyring, but I don't have any idea on how to resolve this.

I am also following the article on our wiki about how to automatically connect to networks at boot but I can't find the command polkit-auth anywhere.  I ran a #pkgfile -u and $pkgfile polkit-auth, and surprisingly, the command doesn't exist in our repos, or at least it doesn't anymore.  So what am I supposed to do from here? hmm

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

Does this have anything to do with gnome-keyring?

Re: Networkmanager doesn't remember any wireless keys

Check out these two links:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=72005

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=572137

I already had the ck-lauch-session stuff, I already had "gnome-keyring-daemon --start --foreground --components=secrets" in my .xinitrc, and I haven't seen any errors from nm-applet, so I made the dbus name change mentioned on the redhat bugzilla. I feel like I'm cursed to find all these obscure issues. I guess that's what you get for being a Linux user for such a long time...

Good luck!
