Problem with systray and network-manager (ubuntu)
 
Hi everybody

Im running ubuntu jaunty and im having a problem with the network manager application. I accidently removed the icon from the systray. This is a problem bercause i now cant access the features of the program, it just runs in the background with the configuration from before i removed the icon. This means that i cannot access new wireless networks (among other things) and its quite a hassle.

When rightclicking the systray and trying to add nm-applet og running it off the terminal it doesnt help. It runs the program but in the background and i cannot access any of the basic functions the systray icon normally offers me.

What i have tried is reinstalling the packages for both the network manager and the network manager applet. Both of them i have removed, first partially and then reinstalled, then completely and reinstalled, both times without any luck.

I realize this is the second post on the subject, but i was advised to post here with more exact information. Hope you can help me

Do you mean the little network icon that normally resides on the far right of the top panel?
If so, how did you remove that? I can't seem to find how you did it.

To get the network icon back, right-click on the panel and choose "add to panel". Then choose "application launcher" from the top of the box that pops up. Then click "forward" at the bottom of the box. Then click the little triangle beside "preferences" to expand it. Then choose "network connections" and click on "add" at the bottom to add it to the panel. You can place it anywhere on the top or bottom panel by moving it.

You can also access network connections from: system > preferences > network connections.
