running nm-applet

When I installed Fedora28 the network manager applet which ran fine on Fedora 25 no longer runs. All of the pieces are in place, as far as I can tell. nm-applet --help says its intended to run in the GNOME desktop environment.

I understand that some users are running it successfully, so I'm assuming that I have lost something that supports xfce running gnome desktop applications. Any ideas?

Re: running nm-applet

I've never needed to do anything for it to run in Fedora and Fedora based distros. As long as there is a notification area on a panel and a working network adaptor, it has appeared.

Re: running nm-applet

I'm using nm-applet without problem under Slackware 14.2. So if you can't run it try nex suggestions:

1) check if nm-applet is set +x mode, on Slackware is located under /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager. If  your distro use the same location change the mode: sudo -> chmod +x rc.nm-applet;  than chek on xfce setting -> session and startup -> application autostar if nm-applet is present and check on.
