Start nm-applet from xfrun4, or from a terminal: nm-applet & disown
(this will send the process to the background and disown will detach
it from the terminal).

And after that make also sure it will run when you log into your
session. Open the settings manager, select Sessions, now in the
"Autostart" tab you can add/remove applications, if you don't see an
entry for the nm-applet you can add one. You can also verify that via
a terminal, a file will be installed inside the directory

Inside /etc/init.d/ there is a script for NetworkManager, make sure it
is configured to run (cf. update-rc.d (8) for Debian systems).
