Unable to manage connections

Postby crazypen » Thu Jan 02, 2014 5:51 pm

Hi to all,
I freshly installed LxDE by a Minimal Ubuntu CD. Actually I succeed in connecting by eth cable, because I think that the system automatically gets all the data required. I installed Network Manager also because I need to scan wi-fi networks,and I wish to choose either LAN or wireless connection, since I'm using a notebook.

I updated NetworkManager.conf. Actually it lists all the networks, but when I try to join my wi-fi, the answer is that Network Manageris not authorised to control networks. Maybe there's another service doing the same work, but I don't know its name and path.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Welcome to the LXDE forum. Is it correct to say that you installed Ubuntu (what version?) using a minimal install and then installed the LXDE desktop? Or did you do a minimal install of Lubuntu?
Have you enabled Wi-Fi? You can do that by clicking on the icon in the LXPanel.

Yes I Installed Ubuntu minimal 13.10 then I chose Lxde Desktop because it's very light.
I downloaded and installed NetworkManager since I was unable to find connection icon on systray and on panel. Then I rebooted the system but I'm not able to manage connections.

You may have another network manager (e.g. WICD) installed, check to see if perhaps another one is installed.

NetworkManager should otherwise work fine.
