Do you have nm-applet installed? I don't think this is a dependency of gnome if USE=networkmanager ...

If it is installed, then we'll have to look at your ~/.Xsession-errors and see why it's not running... typically dbus errors but that's not my expertise...

Hello,
I had not installed nm-applet, but I installed and it still does not work. I tried to see Xsession-erros, but there isn't any file with this name. How can I see ~/.Xsession-errors?

Thanks.

Oops, it's .xsession-errors (without the capitalization). Go into the home directory of whatever user you're logged in as, it should be there.

You can also try running nm-applet at the command line to see what it does, it should pop up the icon in the "tray"...

The problem was that I built the kernel without wireless extensions support. Now it's ok, but I'm using ethernet connection and if I use "/etc/init.d/NetworkManager start", my ethernet connection break and nm-applet appers on the try. The nm-applet show that exist one eth0 connection and show wireless connections around, but the nm-applet does not connect to eth0 and wireless too. If I click on eth0, the nm-applet not connect. And if I click on wireless then the system request the wireless password I write the password but the nm-applet does not connect and the internet works about 10 seconds and breaks, 5 seconds it's reconnects and 10 seconds after breaks again, forming one loop. I think that was some conflict. So I have to stop the NetworkManager and use "ifconfig eth0 up" .

Thanks.

Make sure the regular ethernet config and networkmanager aren't conflicting.

This will have problems when both are fighting for control over DHCP on the interface.

The problem was that dhcpcd was in conflict with NetwotkManager. I unmerged dhcpcd and so my internet stops to works, then I use lived with chroot and remerged dhcpcd. After it my NetworkManager starts to works, but I don't know why.
