No networking icon on gnome shell

Hi Archers.

I have just installed arch on my (thinkpad) machine. I have also installed gnome as a DM. However, I don't have a network status icon. This bother me for I don't have information about wiether or not I am connected to the network. Many parts of the Arch-wiki point me to gnome network applet but when I try to launch nm-applet I get error messages

 ** (nm-applet:16466): WARNING **: Could not initialize NMClient /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager: Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' for details.
** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

** (nm-applet:16466): WARNING **: fetch_connections_done: error fetching connections: (32) Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' for details..

How can I show it?

Re: No networking icon on gnome shell

nm-applet is a front-end for networkmanager which you don't appear to be using. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Networkmanager
