Yes, the interface is visible in 'ifconfig -a'. I have Intel card that never caused any problems 
under Linux. I tried starting gnome-keyring-daemon manually. The only imporvement I got was 
asking me for a password to securely store my wifi password but it wasn't saved anyway.

I think I got all the fileds right. I'm getting a bit frustrated about NM. It caused me a lot of 
problems in the past and it's causing them once again. In fact these error seems to be exactly 
the same as the one I was getting on suse 12.2 and KDE3. Looks as though nm-applet had no 
permissions to manage connections.

Did anyone have similar problems with gtk-qt packages I mentioned earlier? Right now GTK 
appications look horrible, I'd like to get integration working. Surprisingly I see 
files .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 and .gtkrc-2.0-kde-kde4 in my ~, though I didn't use KDE4.

And a few other things:
- can I disbale the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del" dialog in KDM?
- is there a package that provides DMZ cursor theme for X?
- can I decrease the size of panel applet responsible for switching between desktops? In KDE3 when 
I select "elegant" as a background option the applet becomes small so that each desktop is 
represented by a square icon, while in Trinity this applet is actually quite wide. I don't know 
if it's clear what I want to achieve. If no then I'll provide a screenshot.
