|So I just installed Gnome 3 with Systemd on a UEFI system.
First, what do I need to do to make a iwlwifi card (I have an Intel chipset) work with wpa_supplicant_gui? the whhole interface is blank, ifconfig shows no association/address. I've configured wpa_supplicant from the CLI in the distant past, but I would rather manage the whole thing from the GUI on this install.
Also, how do I get the cool desktop effects working in this version? I have a weird hybrid graphics chipset, so Wayland doesnt support it, but glxgears show enough acceleration (~2400fps) to support things like wobbly windows and desktop cube... I just don't see the options anywhere- not sure if I missed a utility or other package, or just don't know where to look.
Gnome is using the i915 driver as far as I know.
thanks for the help!
