I'm using Debian Lenny with Fluxbox. I've installed network-manager
and network-manager-gnome, but it's not working out of the box.
nm-applet reports that NetworkManager is not running, but ps -e shows
that it is. I've asked on the Debian list for help. Do you have any
idea how to get Network Manager to work on Fluxbox?

There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale
returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
