There is no Network manager in the notification area! :(
 
Hi everyone :)
So, there is no Network Manager in the system notification area, but it is turned on, as you can see from the pic. below :)
So i thought it is a bug... and better to ask you about this problem.
I'm using latest ubuntu 10.04 (x64 version)...

// Just for information :)
I had problem with NM before, in Ubuntu 9.10,it cannot make internet connection... I've reported and it suppose to be some bug with user privileges not with NM at all... I was hoping that lycid will be more reliable but there is no NM or I am blind :)

Glad its not just me! In Kubuntu 32 bit Lucid the same thing happens. I installed Wicd and removed it.

No one knows??? :O
I can make pppoe connection in terminal, as in karmic, but i just wanna use graphic program... that is why someone made Network Manager :D...
It's not problem for me... but how to explain on my mother to make pppoe configuration in terminal- you got the point :)... There are people, newbies or however that don't know how to do that :)... and to be more ironic Ubuntu help for establishing network connection is just explaining how to make connection in NM, there is no side way explanation or other way to connect :)
I hope you understand what i want to say :)

I am having the same problem with Network Manager not showing up and yet be running. I am on 10.04 and built up from the minimal CD and am not sure how much that affects things, but on my build I noticed that while the icon might not be there, if I right click in just the right place around the Notification Area Applet, I can get Network Manager to show up. This is more of a work around than a fix, and a really annoying one at that, but that is the best I can offer (I found this thread trying to find an answer for myself).

After some more searching, I found a legitimate solution here.
