network manager in gnome gone

Postby edke on Thu Jul 21, 2011 5:01 pm

After latest updates I lost my network manager applet, I just found Network Monitor applet, but this only shows status. I can't launch my openvpn and other networking profiles ...

Does anyone experience this ?

Hi,
I cannot recall any updates of network-manager-* in the last few days. Maybe you could give us the output of
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy network-manager-*
to help us see what versions of network-manager you have installed.

they both belong to same applet, Network Monitor 2.28.1. but classic network-manager's applet is gone, dunno how I managed that. now I can't enable my openvpn that I configured in network-manager.

Have you checked your start up applications? There should be an entry there. Also try:
Code: Select all
nm-applet --sm-disable &

From a run box (alt-f2).

Cheers

Strange, nm-applet wont start, flashed in notification area, then disappeared again. After restart all worked as it should .... now nm-applet is back .. dunno what was the cause, thank you all for your posts.
