• nm-applet: WiFi password prompt not appearing in Openbox


    Noticed a problem with the nm-applet in the Antergos Openbox version, both in the live minimal and the fully installed environment.

    When I click on a WiFi AP, it just tries to connect, and fails, and doesn’t prompt for a WPA password. Trying to edit the entry in Network Connections applet doesn’t help, because the WiFi Security tab isn’t there. Only way I was able to connect was to select “Connect to Hidden WiFi Network” and manually enter SSID and WPA password. After that it connects fine and I can see the entry with WiFi Security tab and password in Network Connections.

    I also tried the full Antergos Gnome Live version, and that works properly, every time I tried it. I’ve never noticed any problem with other Linux distros not prompting for Wifi password with this laptop with RAL RT5390 chipset.

    Any others noticed this issue?

  • Just searching around and found a fix:

    Installed gnome-keyring and now the WiFi password prompt comes up as it should.
