Hello there,

I have recently installed Gnome 3.10.0 and trying to make NetworkManager work. The daemon seems to be active:

Code:
# systemctl status NetworkManager
NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib64/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2014-03-28 10:36:35 ART; 1h 15min ago
 Main PID: 1753 (NetworkManager)
   CGroup: /system.slice/NetworkManager.service
           ├─1753 /usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon
           └─1808 /sbin/dhcpcd -B -K -L -G -c /usr/libexec/nm-dhcp-client.action enp8s0

Mar 28 10:36:57 baldor NetworkManager[1753]: <info> Activation (enp8s0) Stage 4 of 5 (IPv6 Configure Timeout) complete.


But the nm-applet is not loading, and when I try to manually execute it I'm getting this error message:

Code:
$ nm-applet

** (nm-applet:5405): WARNING **: Could not initialize NMClient /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager: Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.120" (uid=1000 pid=5405 comm="nm-applet ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" member="GetAll" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" (uid=0 pid=1753 comm="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon ")


I have tried to emerge the whole system with
Code:
emerge -e @system ; revdep-rebuild -i
just to make sure that there where no broken packages/libraries, but it didn't really solve this problem. As for what I can read on the message, there seems to be some kind of dbus policy problem but have no clue of what it is.

Just being Captain Obvious here but I guess that happens a lot anyway:

I noted that gnome-control-center-3.10 seems to now incorporate nm-applet functionality and running it is redundant?

Do you see network information in your gnome control center (which includes power, date, time, and control panel) functionality?

Indeed!
I had to kill the nm-applet before executing it, because I didn't know where its log would be. So after killing it, I was able to execute nm-applet and got the error I pasted before.
