Re: Fwd: Having a hard time with NetworkManager on ArchLinux

Hello Thomas,

I executed your command and this is what I see.  This is the dump from the log that I have.

If you are using NetworkManager (or wicd, ConnMan, ...), you don't
manually use ip, dhclient, ... (unless you have a good reason to).

Usually, NetworkManager (the deamon) starts at boot time, as you enabled
it with systemctl. What you click on, is a GUI front-end, to tell
NetworkManger what to do. Probably it's nm-applet (Gnome3 and KDE
usually come with different ones).

You should check, that the WiFi connection you are trying to connect is
properly configured. You can right-click on the icon of nm-applet and do
"Edit connections".

If you cannot figure out whats wrong, it might be helpful to look at the
logfiles and provide more information

  journalctl -b 0 _SYSTEMD_UNIT=NetworkManager.service

Sure, that sounds doable :)
