network-manager: can't change settings
Posted 14 July 2012 - 11:54 PM
I do a right-click on the icon
> Edit connections
> Mobile Broadband
> "Error initializing editor. Insufficient privileges"
So I should get root-privileges for this to change settings, how can I get these?
Shouldn't this work with user-privileges?
Wanted it to get auto-connect when booting, this was fine in bodhi1.4
I can connect, left-click on the nm-icon and choosing the provider, works fine
This for a bodhi2 with a today dist-upgrade

Ok, now I know, to change settings, loading nm-spplet in terminal as root
This doesn't interfere with my set-up nm-applet on the desktop/ibar?
Btw, I purged my bodhi2-partition by accident, installing macpup with e17-DE, also a nice one! Build upon lucid, as I see, but very different in handling, I will try this one for a while, beside bodhi1.4
Now waiting for final release of bodhi2 and gonna give more feedback

I had a similar problem, I found some files were missing for my wifi card. This may not be relevant to you as I'm not an expert but look in /var/log/dmesg and see if there is an error with your wifi card. I had the following:-
[ 12.194176] rtl8192se: Driver for Realtek RTL8192SE/RTL8191SE [ 12.194178] Loading firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192sefw.bin ........ ........ [ 12.507221] rtl8192se:rtl92s_init_sw_vars():<0-0> Failed to request firmware! [ 12.507226] rtlwifi:rtl_pci_probe():<0-0> Can't init_sw_vars. [ 12.507261] rtl8192se 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
I found that the dir /lib/firmware/rtlwifi was missing, so it couldn't load the firmware, I copied it across from my bodhi 1.4 partition rebooted and up came all the wifi networks in network manager, probably not the best way to fix it but it worked.

sudo apt-get install evas-generic-loaders
Jeff mentioned it in another thread.
