Description Ville Skyttä 2008-02-28 19:52:51 UTC
nm-connection-editor does not start:

This is F-8 x86_64, KDE, NetworkManager from updates-testing.  Nothing happens
from the applet's right-click->edit connections either.


Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-02-29 20:16:22 UTC
Ok; thanks.  lock is only in gnome-icon-theme or Bluecurve, but those probably
an undesirable dep of the applet, so I'll figure something out.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2008-03-01 07:32:33 UTC
I did have gnome-icon-theme installed at the time I reported this; for testing I
also installed bluecurve-icon-theme (and I already had bluecurve-kde-theme
installed) but those don't seem to make any difference.

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2008-03-03 01:23:39 UTC
Huh.  lock.png does exist in gnome-icon theme; can you run
'gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/gnome' for me and see if that helps?
 Any icon theme RPM that provides icons for GTK apps should be running that in
the %post; sometimes it gets forgotten.  In any case I'll add a dep on
gnome-icon-theme to NetworkManager-gnome.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2008-03-03 21:34:40 UTC
"gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/gnome" did not have any effect.

But when I manually started /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon (note that I run
KDE - such things aren't normally running), something started to happen.

I still can't do anything useful with nm-connection-editor (Add, Edit buttons
disabled) but maybe that's another bug; at least the window appears now.

Comment 6 Dan Williams 2008-04-08 17:08:46 UTC
What's the output of:

find /usr/share/icons/ -name "lock*"

Comment 7 Gerwin Krist 2008-04-08 17:59:22 UTC
Having /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon running does "fix" indeed the loading
of the program. But as Ville said nothing works there ...

OUTPUT find /usr/share/icons/ -name "lock*":


Comment 8 Dan Williams 2008-04-08 19:18:43 UTC
Yeah, Add/Edit are disabled until they are fully implemented.  You can delete
user connections though; add/edit are coming quite soon.

Having to start gnome-settings-daemon under KDE is of course suboptimal, I've
committed a fix upstream (applet r657) that will filter back to f8-updates-testing.

Comment 9 Gerwin Krist 2008-04-09 06:16:25 UTC
also to rawhide? I'm having this bug on rawhide :)

Comment 10 Dan Williams 2008-04-09 15:56:54 UTC
Yeah, svn3548 was built into rawhide/koji yesterday; testing appreciated.  You
could probably pull them from Koji.

Comment 11 Gerwin Krist 2008-04-09 16:49:35 UTC
Todays rawhide updates did not fixed it. What is the packagename I will get it
from koji then ...

Comment 12 Dan Williams 2008-04-10 13:41:17 UTC
svn3548 or later:


can you test?

Comment 13 Gerwin Krist 2008-04-10 15:16:28 UTC
thanks, works,  now the edit dialog popups without errors on console ...
