Hello everyone:

I have a fresh install of gnome 3.8

In my User session does not work the network applet.

But if I start a root session I can handle the applet, connect and share

Then close the root session and the network is connected and shared, so that my user can make use of it.

After reboot, root continues as the owner of the network, automatically connecting and sharing network.

This is not right, my user should be able to handle the connections and the applet.

Someone had this problem or know how to fix it?

Thanks in advance

There are some things to check mentioned in the upgrade guide ... https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GNOME/3.8-upgrade-guide
I'm not using gnome 3.8 but you might find looking at systemd services useful https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Systemd

Hm, and check if your user in the "plugdev" group is (recommended by networkmanager-0.9.8.8.ebuild (and http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NetworkManager ))

On my system I had to add the polkit rule manually: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager#Set_up_PolicyKit_permissions
Code:
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.rules

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
  if (action.id.indexOf("org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.") == 0 && subject.isInGroup("plugdev")) {
    return polkit.Result.YES;
  }
});
