When you say manually what do you mean? Also why would you need to manually add it and do you understand the ramifications of adding packages outside the normal schema in regards to security?

Always add SW using the package manager whenever possible.

If you want something different than the standard Ubuntu tool, you might want to look at wicd.

network-manager is there to start with. You shouldn't need to install it. There should be an icon next to the date to launch it.

Or did you remove it and now want to put it back? If so, click /System/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager and type "network-manager" in the Quick Search box.

I did remove it by accident and want to add it somehow I don't care how.
Synaptic won't help me since I have no network ... that's what I meant to add it manually . any ideas ?

How about fixing the network at the command line and then installing network-manager in the normal way? Are you interested in doing that?

Regardless of what you're going to do you need either network connectivity or a copy of the network-manager package. If you have the package a simple 'dpkg -i filename.deb' will install it (provided you didn't yank out 'unneeded dependencies' with it.) If you did yank things you need, you'll need all of those packages also.

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ NetworkManager
You must be root to run NetworkManager!
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ networkmanager
No command 'networkmanager' found, did you mean:
 Command 'knetworkmanager' from package 'network-manager-kde' (main)
networkmanager: command not found
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop$
