how do i install network-manager and start using it instead of wicd
for me wicd isn't really working out and the linux distro (ubuntu and debian based) that i downloaded and installed had wicd pre-installed and ready for use but up to now i don't like it so i want to know how to install and start using network-manager-gnome because last time i installed it from the repositories and restarted and never saw the applet on the top panel so is there something else that i should do before i start going crazy because i can't seem to figure out how to get the applet going and start using it
network manager startup
In ubuntu version 11.10 network manager is the default and I did no extra configuration.
In Slackware you must do the follwing to start the network manager applet pkg.
To start NTM enter this in etc/rc.d/rc.local
# Start NetworkManager:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager ]; then
sh /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager start
Hope this is of some help.
