[SOLVED][GNOME 3] After install - no Network Manager?

Installed Arch for the first time yesterday, so I put GNOME 2 on it first to make sure everything worked before moving onto the unstable stuff. Installed GNOME 3, installed Gnome Shell, bootup, everything seems perfect, except that I have no Network Manager. No applet in the top-right corner. Clicking on the Network application under activities did nothing and neither did trying to access it from System Settings. I did a little Googling, figured that I needed to actually install networkmanager and network-manager-applet. So I did so from pacman:

pacman -S networkmanager network-manager-applet

and now I can get into the application but I'm getting an error, "The system network services are not compatible with this version," which gives me a minimal-use window with a network proxy entry and the ability to add a VPN entry.

I know my WiFi works (Intel Wireless-N 1000) because it shows up as wlan0 in iwconfig and I can connect to an unsecured network with wicd. Anyone know how I can get Gnome's Network Manager back?

start networkmanager


i did compiled support for networkmanager in gnome-shell and gnome-control-center but i made it optionally.


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

OK, so I'm not sure what you're recommending here... just typing into terminal
$ networkmanager
doesn't do anything since bash doesn't recognize it. If it's optional (i.e. that I had to have pacman grab it manually), that doesn't explain why it doesn't pick up any of my NIC's and why the applet doesn't show up in the upper-right hand part of the screen.

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME 3] After install - no Network Manager?

networkmanager is a daemon therefor it needs to be started in rc.conf/DAEMONS.

/etc/rc.d/networkmanager start

really, if you are not used to networkmanager, you are NOT obligated to use it

ah, the stupid daemon. Of course. /knockheadonwood. Might be good to link that kind of stuff to the GNOME 3 wiki entry.

Thanks for your time!

Um, did Wonder help you solve the problem ?  If so, please add [SOLVED] to the thread title by editing the original post.
As to the wiki links, feel free smile

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME 3] After install - no Network Manager?

Would it be bad of me to re-open with the same issue using systemd? Should I create a new thread about the same issue except in a systemd setup?

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME 3] After install - no Network Manager?

have you checked the wiki for systemd?
you probably have to enable NetworkManager with

 systemctl enable NetworkManager.service

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME 3] After install - no Network Manager?

This thread is 3 years old and nobody posted here for 1.5 years - why "resurect it"?
Are you sure about

# ./etc/rc.d/network start

That's not how we start it using systemd.
No package provides /etc/rc.d/network.
Is that dot before the first slash in the path a typo?

Are you using an up to date Arch Linux?
