NetworkManager fails to add new networks

view full story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Thanks for the tips. I did what you suggested (start gnome-keyring-daemon from .xinitrc) Unfortunately, the grey-out still persists. I kill nm-applet then restart it as root. When I tried to connect to another network, I got Failed to add/activate connection(1) Creating object for path '/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/1' failed in libnm-glib.It complains Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.Dbus.Properties" doesn't exist.I mentioned that I recently removed gnome, so perhaps I screwed up things along the way (HowTos)
