Issue with i3 and nm-applet

Postby beetlejuice7 on Fri Oct 12, 2012 3:30 am

Hi, I'm using lmde with xfce -- i3 is my WM of choice.

The issue I am running into is when I start an i3 session and fire up nm-applet, if I want to connect to another network I never get the "enter your password to change the system" prompt. It simply does not show up, and I have to log in to an xfce session to get it.

What piece am I missing? Here are a couple files I though tmight be relevant:

/usr/share/xsessions/i3.conf
Code: Select all
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=i3
Comment=improved dynamic tiling window manager
Exec=i3
Type=XSession


/usr/share/applications/i3.desktop:
Code: Select all
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=i3
Comment=improved dynamic tiling window manager
Exec=i3
X-GNOME-WMName=i3
X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=WindowManager
X-GNOME-Provides=windowmanager
X-GNOME-Autostart-Notify=false
