network manager applet won't start after star-tup even it should
Last modified: 2015-11-24 09:18:42 EST
With my Fedora22 that has KDE5, I am using the awesome window-manager. Since the updates on November 14th (update of systemsettings5 was part of it) I am encountering several problems, that seem to be connected to the loading of my systemsettings at the system-startup. The failure to load network manager applet is just one of them.
Further I cannot launch KDE applications like kshutdown or konsole, nor can I alter the startup/shutdown services (saying that KDED cannot be contacted), which results in not loading may Power Management profile.
You are probably talking about KDE graphical frontend (plasma-nm), because nm-applet is not run in KDE by default.

I am talking about nm-applet. I had it set to run at startup. However, this is not a problem anymore, and it seems to have been solved with a recent update (sometime last week). My systemsettings for the startup and shutdown services are now accessible and I do not get an error regarding KDED.
Anyway, I do not think that this was a problem with the applet in itself, but rather it had to do with the loading of the startup/shutdown settings at the beginning of a session. The problem is solved now.
Fwiw, plasma5 only recently (re)gained support for classic xembed-based systemtray icons
Closing per "problem is solved now"
