After an update over the weekend to KDE4.2.1 on openSuSE11.1 I was not
able to connect to my wireless network.
After some debugging I noticed that my /var/log/NetworkManager contained
NetworkManager: <WARN> get_secrets_cb(): Couldn't get connection
secrets: A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending
this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file
(rejected message had interface
"GetSecrets" error name "(unset)" destination
This seems to be controlled thru the file
and the lines :
"/> (this line may not be exactly what others have as I have hacked it a
bit to get it working).
Anyway the following is what I now have in each of the 'policy' sections
of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/knetworkmanager.conf to get my wireless to work:
Am I missing an update somewhere ?
Yours does not look like mine.
As mentioned I had hacked it. I did not really want
to get back to the
original (for me NetworkManager-kde-0.7r848570-23.2.1 as well) as I did not
want to do without my wifi connection :)
The contents of the the KDE4 version
(NetworkManager-kde4) and the
KDE3 version are slightly different, however.
I also had trouble with KDE4's network manager component, so even
though I am running KDE4.2.1 I'm using KDE 3.5's network manager
component. Perhaps you've found the cause of my troubles as well!
This is the
same for me.
A very annoying thing for me is that the NetworkManager plasmoid/applet/thing
when it is not able to use the definition of the network I gave it(and named
using the SSID), then searches for a new wifi network, finds the one I defined
above, and tries to help me access it (by putting in the appropriate WPA
keys), which of course fails as it is exactly the same as the first network I
I think that I use very little of KDE3 anymore, but I have to use
