Installing Gnome's NetworkManager Applet in XFCE

Postby Hellishcross on Sun Jul 12, 2009 5:06 pm

I prefer the NetworkManager Applet in Gnome better than the combo of WICD and GPRS QuickConnect used in XFCE mainly because my cell phone is my internet connection.

NetworkManager Applet combines the functionality of both of these and is located right there in the System Tray area.

To install Gnome's NetworkManager Applet in XFCE open terminal and type:

Code: Select all
sudo apt install network-manager-gnome

Answer yes to installing the new data.

When I restarted my computer the next time there was that familiar Gnome NetworkManager Applet greeting me in the system tray.
I switched from AT&T to Ting and now I'm saving almost $100 a month on my wireless bill!!!

Earn us both $50 by switching to Bounce Energy!!!

And if you don't want Gnome NM in gnome just do
Code: Select all
apt install wicd

That will remove gnome NM the same way as wicd is removed if you install NM
The gnome NM behaves really bad with static IP
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
