Hello, i installled NetworkManager on the MATE desktop,
there is no nm-applet on the panel, i followed a google
search and downloaded the applet from emerge, when
trying to run it it came with this error:

Code:
 ~ $ nm-applet

(nm-applet:28584): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:2:16: Theming engine 'adwaita' not found
 


then I thought i must need the 'adwaita' icon theme, so I emerged that, still same as before, I see a blip
on the taskbar, but the applet fails to launch, posting to see if someone knows how to fix this
thanks.

after doing more research i discovered
that i needed to add my username to a
group as follows:

Code:
gpasswd -a keith plugdev
 


then when I restarted and logged back in there was
the internet icon i had been looking for!!

ahhh.. the great mysteries of the linux OS,
so much to learn, and to grow for me...
