Hye,

Any ideas why I don't see the locked wire when connected to a vpn, see the image below.

Might be an icon update issue. Try to switch Off then On to force icon update.

I meant click the VPN VPNBOOK DE2333 button to switch Off the vpn. Then switch it On. Does the network icon displayed change ? I already faced this issue with Linux Mint Rebecca, I had to do this to force network icon update.

I was able to see one more time the locker, by restarting cinnamon with the keys combination.

But since then no clue.

Is there anyway to clear the cinnamon "cache"?!

Thanks.

P.S: I had also a problem with the dropbox icon, i followed some instructions to restore the default cinnamon panel and my dropbox icon is back but still no locker when connected to vpn.

I use the VPN (openconnect via NetworkManager) pretty often on my LMDE2 machine (which was a fresh install), and I'm not sure I've ever seen the lock icon on the wireless icon.
