I tried updating templates. Now “enable wi-fi” is not showing in the NetworkManager anymore when sys-net is based on fedora-36-xfce template. When switching back to fedora-34 (not xfce) it works again. I have not tried fedora-36 (not xfce) as I try to keep my system minimal and not have to many templates installed.
How can I get wi-fi working with this xfce setup?
I thought fedora-36 and fedora-36-xfce main difference is the windows manager, but there seems to be a missing component in xfce for wifi to work as it usually does.?
I see that you updated the above post. Some people, including some core developers, are interacting with this forum via email. They do not receive the edits made after 10 minutes. For this reason, it’s better to make a new post, not update the old one (and/or use quotations like I do here):
Was on vacation.
Now I downloaded & tried fedora-36 (gnome) for sys-net: Wi-Fi and the option “enable wi-fi” in the NetworkManager are working.
When switching to fedora-36-xfce template for sys-net, “enable wi-fi” is not showing in the NetworkManager and Wi-Fi is not working.
There must be difference in regard to the installed packages related to wi-fi between fedora-36 (gnome) and fedora-36-xfce.
Can someone point me to the missing wi-fi packages in the xfce template?
There’s no reason to suppose that that firmware did anything, or that it
was right for your box. (It wouldn’t match the details you now provide,
and wouldn’t be loaded.)
8265/75 is covered in standard Fedora firmware-linux package.
It’s possible that this package was updated , or some kernel package was
updated during your install, and that fixed the issue.
journalctl -b will show you the log since the last boot and you can
search for firmware to see what has been loaded.
unman, you are right. It is working even after I removed AX2xx wifi.
while I remember back when I installed and rebooted package by package following Minimal templates | Qubes OS and joes instructions to see which one will make it work, it seemed to be the last one I installed, that being AX2xx wifi. but I guess I must have missed a reboot so it was already complete before that. Thanks for pointing out.
