I cannot seem to commit any changes to network configs using the KDE/Plasma5 network manager applet. the Apply button is gray no matter what.

I also cannot quit/shutdown from KDE/plasma5... it always behaves as if I selected logout, regardless if I selected shutdown or restart. It just ends my session and drops to sddm login screen.

I have to think it's a polkit problem, but I don't know where to start to troubleshoot. My system is sysvinit and not systemd.

Code:

$ emerge --info

Make sure you have configured services properly. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/KDE#Services

For consolekit in particular: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ConsoleKit#Usage

How do you start your session?

Thanks I'll read over those again. I have xdm (sddm) configured in the default runlevel, so my session starts after an sddm login.

I've resolved the logout/shutdown problem. It seems I had more than ck session open, and ck properly refused to shut the whole system down until the other session was closed. I've resolved that so now shutdown/restart works properly from plasma.

I still can't get the nm applet to save anything though. This one seems to be a chronic recurring problem for many given the googling. It sure seems like a permissions issue or group membership thing? What I don't get is that it must have worked at some point in the past because I actually have many wired & wireless configs. I just can't commit any changes to them now.

Bump - anyone actually able to get changes made through kcm_networkmanagement.desktop in plasma5 to commit? "Apply" button is not disabled? If so can you share versions of consolekit, polkit, networkmanager, plasma-nm and networkmanager-qt and use flags?

Even if I run

Code:
$ sudo /usr/bin/kcmshell5  kcm_networkmanagement.desktop


I still can't get the apply button to enable.

Running nmtui in a user shell does work though, and edits are properly committed. Then opening kcm_networkmanagement shows those changes as one would expect.
