I've recently installed ArchLinux with Xfce4 and NetworkManager on an Eeepc 1005HA. NetworkManager is mostly fine - it auto-connects to ethernet and will auto-connect for wifi too if the connection is already set up.
My problem is that it requires a password every time I wish to edit or add connections. Also when selecting a network from the systray menu it doesn't ask for a network key, so I have to then go and edit it before it will work.
I have tried following https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager#Set_up_PolicyKit_Permissions but
dbus-launch breaks my mouse and the
.pkla file doesn't seem to do anything.
My user is already a member of
network as well as a good few others, and network-manager-applet is installed.
Hope you can help!
