network manager applet on MATE desktop


I've installed MATE 1.6 on debian wheezy (stable).

So far it works great, but the gnome network-manager applet is gone.
I can still run nmtool from the CL.

question:
is there a MATE equivalent to gnome nm applet?
System->control center->network looks like something which manages networks, but it's all grayed out. is it because nmtool is running?

TIA

If System->control center->network opens the nm-applet gui and the buttons are grayed out, try running nm-applet as administrator.

Code:
$ pkill nm-applet
# nm-applet

tnx, but nm-applet doesnt seem to be installed. it could have been removed with all the other gnome apps I purged.

apt-get install nm-applet
gives
Unable to locate package nm-applet

That is because it is installed with the network-manager-gnome package

Code:
# apt-get install network-manager-gnome
