Re: blocking bug for laptop users ( rfkill on dell laptop )

the real problem is that NM does not update the wireless status in the applet even when its command to disable wireless is used
the command is:

dbus-send --system --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.setWirelessEnabled boolean:false

this command is a dbus one and it is offered by network manager, so the applet must not ignore it!

I was able to see that with rfkill, NM is waiting for hal have this
fixed .

reference :

I am able to see /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/dell_wlan_switch path in
hal listing . The value of this does not change with rfkill switch

  i do see hal not listing my wireless card when rfkill switch is "off",
but NM still list wireless under menu. This behaviour was not seen when
i had used a pcmcia wireless card ( ornico ) .
