In newly installed Gentoo + Plasma 5, no netwrok icon shows in system tray so I can not use NM gui I have plasma-nm installed though.
And Network Manager has started but is inactive like this:
Code:
msh@localhost ~ $ sudo rc-service NetworkManager restart
Password:
 * Caching service dependencies ...                                                     [ ok ]
 * Unmounting network filesystems ...                                                   [ ok ]
 * Stopping NetworkManager ...                                                          [ ok ]
 * Starting NetworkManager ...                                                          [ ok ]
Connecting...............    0s
 * Marking NetworkManager as inactive. It will automatically be marked
 * as started after a network connection has been established.
 * WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive
 * WARNING: netmount will start when NetworkManager has started
msh@localhost ~ $

I found some threads online about it but still don't find solution.
please help...

Solution is found.
Network status icon shows in system tray and NM GUI works well after installing kde-plasma/plasma-nm.

I installed kde-misc/plasma-nm before, it is wrong package.
The right package is kde-plasma/plasma-nm
Why there are two packages in very similar names?
What is kde-misc/plasma-nm for? Both are for the same purpose?

Now I solved my network status icon and NM GUI problem
but Network Manager still start but is inactive,
Code:
 * WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive

it is not very important to me though.

minsoehan ... that is normal, though it should probably say "NOTICE" rather than "WARNING" (and so avoid users thinking that something is effectively *wrong*).

openrc-run.c:
  if (rc_service_state(service) & RC_SERVICE_INACTIVE)
    ewarnx("WARNING: %s has started, but is inactive", applet);

best ... khay

I'm using XFCE and, at ssytem start, sometimes the NetworkManager icon shows a red X and

#rc-service NetworkManager status

says the service is inactive, and i need to restar manually with

#rc.-service NetworkManager restart

What's the problem?
