Finally, the NetworkManager and NetworkManager Applet for KDE 4 are working stable! :o

Recently installed the new version of NetworkManager (net-misc/networkmanager-0.7.1) and SVN version of Applet (kde-misc/networkmanager-applet-9999). I noticed a small problem, the applet works with root but not with my normal user 8O. Correct this problem by changing the file's access permissions dbuser, the file was corrected with the following contents:



<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
 "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
        <policy user="root">
                <allow own="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>
        <policy group="plugdev">
                <allow own="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>
        <policy at_console="true">
                <allow own="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>

                <!-- Only root can get secrets -->
                <deny send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"
        <policy context="default">
                <deny send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings"

        <limit name="max_replies_per_connection">512</limit>

Another detail... you must register prior to the network to the Manage Connections-Applet NetworkManager automatically connects to the network you want. Before accessing a new SSID, go to Manage Connections and register with the network password (if any) when you click OK the Applet automatically connect to the network!

Enjoy the KDE 4!!! 8)
