I am using NetworkManager Applet 0.8.1, centos 6.4 x86_64. nmcli version 0.8.1-107.el6. This is seems the latest version for this system release edition.
I am using edup ep-n1572 wifi card with chip rtl8192cu. I download driver for linux from edup website and installed successfully.
nmcli con list not show wlan card and I could not activate it.

When using NetworkManager GUI mode in xwindow, it works fine. I can see wifi ssids and connect one of them successfully. I start my machine as console mode and then using
startx to xwindow gui mode. While NetworkManager GUI works well in a login session,
nmcli con list can see infomation of a ssid in
user scope, which the wireless card connected, in another login session which I openned using

But when I logout from xwindow, it still can not show wireless information.
Infos what I got in console mode using nmcli without any xwindows startup
RUNNING STATE WIFI-HARDWARE WIFI WWAN-HARDWARE WWAN running disconnected enabled enabled enabled enabled
nmcli dev can show wireless card

iwconfig wlan0 mode auto not solve my problem
iwlist scan, nmcli dev wifi list, nm-tool, iw dev wlan0 scan all can return ssids successfully
So It seems should not be a big problem, right? What should I do? Thanks for your consideration.
