nm-applet

Postby c-m » Wed Dec 09, 2009 3:20 pm

To use the network manager i have to manually type nm-applet at the terminal, this is despite it being set to run at start up.

Now i tried to uninstall the applet but it is not found.

I then searched synaptic and it cannot find the package either.

What the hell is going on?

I am using Mint 8 and my apt list is below:

Code: Select all

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ helena main upstream import community
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ karmic-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ karmic partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ karmic free non-free


deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jason-scheunemann/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
# deb http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor jaunty main
# deb-src http://mirror.noreply.org/pub/tor jaunty main

You have some jaunty repos - watch out
No you can't find nm-applet installed - it's probably because it's several packages, but a bit strange I agree
I can't tell you why it does not autostart - there's no mystery with autostart....
I'll add this to my list and come back to you

Ooops - I thought I did an apt search for network-manager-gnome :)

Have you considered using Wicd?
