I have Ubuntu 13.04 Gnome with Mate.
If I click on the networking icon on the top tool bar and try to do something like add a never before used Wifi or simply click Hardwire Connection 1 when I have changed to a new network, I get 'Connection activation failed. (32) Not authorized to control networking.'
My presumption is that I have lacking some group attribute for my user or else there is some security setting.
I can make the changes if I log in as root instead of myself.
What must be tweaked to allow my user name the privileges to handle this?
