NetworkManager problem on Mint 6 KDE [SOLVED]

I have disabled NetworkManager few days ago with this command:

Code: Select all
sudo chmod -x /etc/init.d/NetworkManager


because I didn't use it. But today I installed cabel internet so now I need it but I can't turn it on.
It just says ''NetworkManager is not running'' like on the picture above.
I have tried:

Code: Select all
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/NetworkManager
and reboot but it didn't work.

I have also tried
Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
but still nothing. :(

Could someone please help me to make it work again?
Thanks a lot.

chmod is maybe not the best way to do it
Try
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe NetworkManager

and see what happens

here is what I got:

Code: Select all
milos@milos ~ $ sudo modprobe NetworkManager
[sudo] password for milos:
FATAL: Module NetworkManager not found.
milos@milos ~ $


What should I do now?

Ok that was a shot in the dark - I just hoped that there would be a module NetworkManager
Frankly I don't understand why it's not working - have you rebooted
That's something to do (always) in a case like this
Oh - go to init.d and check that NetworkManager is executable now - might not have changed

The problem is solved :D
It works great now!
And it was my mistake :oops:
I have changed /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf file by folowing this tutorial:

http://ca.rroll.net/2008/09/28/firefox- ... on-ubuntu/

Thankfully I made a backup before changing so when I copied it back an rebooted internet started to work out of the box 8)
Thanks a lot for your help.

Well - if nothing else this shows that there are multiple config files for some apps, which sometimes makes it hard to troubleshoot
