Go green on GNOME

I was looking for green themes/colors for my GNOME. GNOME colors[1] solved my problem. I did the following,


$ sudo apt-get install gnome-wise-icon-theme gnome-colors arc-colors

Appearance:
* Icons – GNOME-wise (green)
* Colors – Selected items : Background = #547722
* Controls – can be any ( I had clearlooks)

GDM Setup:
* Local : Arc-Wise GDM (Green)
* Background = #547722

problem in starting nm-applet

nm-applet fails to start and shows

** (nm-applet:3006): WARNING **: nma_dbus_init(): could not acquire its service. dbus_bus_acquire_service() says: 'Connection ":1.17" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo" due to security policies in the configuration file'

The following solution worked for me,
