hi guys, after I install networkmanager under KDE. the network manager widget succeed in scanning wireless AP.
I was failed to connect wireless AP with a error notice:

Error adding connection: Insufficient privileges.

I could connect wireless with wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd by hand.

what I haved done by wiki: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NetworkManager#Troubleshotting

1. add normal user to plugdev group: root # gpasswd -a $USER plugdev

2. all available actions output of pkaction command: http://ix.io/8f9 these actions about network:

Code:
$ pkaction|grep network
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.enable-disable-network
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.enable-disable-wifi
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.enable-disable-wimax
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.enable-disable-wwan
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.network-control
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.hostname
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.own
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.system
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.sleep-wake
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wifi.share.open
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wifi.share.protected


3. I have start dbus, consolekit service required by networkmanager, rc-update output: http://ix.io/8fc
