Post by tcpip »

Hi all,


My network manager is missing, I rebooted my notebook, I restarted the nm-applet, but still the same.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Is your internet connection working though?
First look if it is already running: service network-manager status
Then try restarting it: sudo service network-manager restart

Open Applets and make sure the Network applet is enabled.

(nm-applet:3043): nm-applet-WARNING **: Error connecting to ModemManager: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.ModemManager1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Cannot launch daemon, file not found or permissions invalid

reinstall network manager then, something wrong or missing there.

Was this a fresh install or fresh upgrade? It was working before and then quit working?

Will this be ok to reinstall?

sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager

sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager-gnome

should be, but may have to re-do your settings. It seems some parts of it was removed previously, based on the error messages you received.
