NetworkManager icon

Hello all,

I am using ubuntu 5.10. I accidently removed the icon for a program called networkmanager from my top panel. Is it possible to get this icon back? Ive tried right clicking and add to panel but its not in that list unfortunately.

NetworkManager is a service. I don't remember what the service commands are in Ubuntu, but you should be able to restart NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher, and your icon should return.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in the Ubuntu forum and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Since the network manager is an applet, you can right click on an empty space on your top panel -> add applet and then select the network manager. You can find out more info by taking a look here.
