I installed docker and put 'docker &' in the autostart script. After I
re-login with WindowMaker as the desktop manager, I see the dock. Now
when I start pidgin, it shows an icon in the dock as expected. However
when I start NM, it says that I need to be root to run NM (I tried
this in terminal to see the message it spews). Sudo doesn't work
either. So I su to root, and run NM, but that doesn't do it either. Am
I missing something?


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
