Debian Configuration :: Network Manager Is Missing Some Icons
Dec 7, 2015
I just upgraded my Debian stretch via apt-get and I noticed that the network manager is missing at least 2 icons: the mobile broadband icon and the settings icon. I haven't found any bug reports or other information about how to restore them. The icons were there after initial installation of version 8.2.0 from DVD.
KDE Plasma version 5.4.2
Qt Version 5.5.1
Kernel Version 4.2.0-1-amd64
The Volume control and network manager icons are not visible in the notification area.. I sure its has nothing to do with Add to panel-->Notification area....beacuse the notification area is already there.. but the icons are not visible the only way that I can make the visible is by typing code...
for volume control.. Only then they become visible in the notification area
Both, the network manager and volume control are mentioned in the "Start-up programs"
My ethernet and pppoe internet connection worked flawlessly in lenny. I erased my hard drive and installed squeeze and now only internet works. (There is a pop-up that says that my wired connection is disconnected and shortly after there is another pop-up saying that my internet is connected.)1.my user is in the netdev group2./etc/network/interfaces only contains:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback 3. /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf only contains:
have only been using it for a couple weeks now. i installed Picasa from google just now and since then my desktop icons have disapeared and if i open the file manager it closes within 5 seconds. i have tried rebooting the computer and have now completly removed picasa and the problem is still there.
I'm using Slackware64 13.37 with Robby's Xfce 4.8 build on a laptop with two batteries. I've noticed that when the charge for one battery is depleted, the empty battery icon for the xfce4-power-manager panel applet is displayed as an "image missing" icon (see the attachments for screenshots of how this progresses).
Is this just down to a missing image, or is it more subtle than that? Has anyone else had the same problem, and if so how did you fix it? So far I've tried clearing the GTK+ icon cache and reinstalling the hicolor icon theme package as suggested in other threads in this forum, but nothing changed.
Since a recent update on Stretch, I have been unable to use the network-manager to connect to my home wireless network on my laptop. It was working fine before. I did not change any settings on the WLAN router. I can still connect to other wireless networks at work and university, just not this particular one at home. All other non-Debian devices in my household are still able to connect just fine.While figuring this out, I have tried connecting manualy with ifup but I don't really know how that works. Right now there is only the loopback entry in /etc/network/interfaces.
Below is the output of syslog, when gnomes network-manager is trying to connect, but fails. Code: Select allJul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): Activation: starting connection 'Affenbande' Jul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): Activation: Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled... Jul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): Activation: Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) started...
After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.
If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.
woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.
I can't seem to get this to work without having to physically create connections as root. The "Available to all users" in the nm settings box remains uncheckable, despite completing the following tasks:
After today's squeeze update the nm-applet (it updated it to version 0.8.4-1) crashes when trying to connect to my vpn (pptp). I'm pretty new when it comes to this so I'm not sure what to do. I tried looking at the log file (applications--> system tools-->log file viewer) but I don't know what to make of it.
I just installed, and evolution doesn't seem to think it has internet. The icon with the power cord in the bottom left is unplugged, and send/receive is greyed out. Internet is working , but it is not using network manager, since network manager says no internet is connected. Maybe this has something to do with it?
I have a new install of Debian Squeeze from debian-6.0.0-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso but I'm experiencing problems with the wireless internet applet in the taskbar.When the computer boots, it doesn't connect automatically eventhough I have it set as such. I have to fiddle with it until I get the request from KDE Wallet Manager to insert the password to complete the connection. I didn't have this behavior in Kubuntu.
I'm trying to use network-manager in sid and it's incredibly frustrating because every 2 minutes or so it seems to scan for wireless access points, during which time my SSH connections completely hang and screw up. Pings start dropping packets as well. By doing an "iwlist scan" I can reproduce the behavior. Has anyone else dealt with this? I haven't been using network-manager, but I am currently due to mobility and needed VPN functionality... WICD with no network-manager works better but there's no gui-based VPN support. I've got an Atheros wireless device and I've read that supposedly it should be doing background scanning since kernel 2.6.32, but I haven't seen anything like that, and I'm on 2.6.32-5-amd64 currently, 2.6.32-3-amd64 behaves the same too.
Its my liillte headache with my hsdpa modem. using wvdial i can connect to the net huawei e220l but NetworkManager is a different story. # lsusb | fgrep HuaweiBus 001 Device 010: ID 12d1:1003 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E220 HSDPA Modem / E270 HSDPA/HSUPA Modemi',m ok with wvdial and its gui wrapper(gnome-ppp) .i just would like it to be functional since my noob bro
I have just updated my Squeeze system. The update included a newer version of network-manager (and it can not be more than a few hours old). After the update all network functionality on my machine (via knetwork-manager) is broken. The GUI applet has no effect.
Hence can anyone help me: a) Downgrade network-manager by one version; b) Find out what is causing knetworkmanager to break; c) See if the problem is with knetworkmanager or network-manager.
I am currently using Debian Testing, managing my wireless connection with NetworkManager and the Gnome nm-applet. Both have just been updated: network-manager from 0.8.1-6+squeeze1 to 0.8.2-6 and network-manager-gnome from 0.8.1-2 to 0.8.2-4.On installation of the new packages, I have no problems. However, on a reboot, I can no-longer connect to any wireless connection. I am not prompted on start-up for the password to unlock the Gnome keyring and when I left-click on the nm-applet icon and then click on a network to connect to it, nothing happens.I do not think this is a driver or NetworkManager daemon problem. If I run "nmcli dev wifi" or left-click on the applet icon, NetworkManager seems to scan for wireless networks properly and returns a list including the one I wish to connect to.
Now it supports many of the commercial mobile broadband modems out of the box. Great job!I've just found out, that the nm-app statusbar icons are messed up.Only found this issue in mono-light and mono-dark icon themes in Ubuntu 10.10 -No difference between wifi and mobile broadband connection types. It would be great if it's fixed (checked the symlinks, they point to an emty transparent svg... Would be nice to include cell tower, and connection type icons in the future....)-Connecting always show wireless connecting animation. (IMHO the Gnome-Colors connecting dots were more self explaining)
downloaded the latest firefox and put it in /opt, it runs ok but the interface is missing icons, like the back and forward buttons, refresh, the x on the tabs, the + for a new tab, and others. iceweasel is fine. anyone seen this or know where or how to fix it?
I use Debian Jessie which includes a gnome shell version 3.14.1. The problem is that icons of some applications such as Viber or Starcal are not shown in the tray while the icons of other applications (e.g. Skype of Dropbox) are shown without problem.
By the way, the problem does not relate to loading, because all applications are loaded and a space is considered for each in the tray, but the problem is that for some of applications the pictures of their icons are not shown.
All qt4 apps tray icons are missing. Debian decided to drop sni-qt support and wmsystemtray is actually piece of shit. Also I can't even use ubuntu version of sni-qt, because it also needs to have patched version of qt4, but debian refused to include that patches. What should I do to make skype icon visible in kde5 tray?
i'm trying to install virt-manager , to run a couple of virtual machines, i created a virtual nic vnet0 and bridged it to my eth0, i have configured the /etc/network/interfaces file with proper static ip, but i beleive the network manager is renaming my nic to eth1 and causing all kinds of problems. I uninstalled network manager and now i can ping anywhere in the network, but not outside it. ie google.com
I've upgraded to F12 from F11 (with a completely fresh install) and today is my 4th day using it, Now, mysteriously my network manager has disappeared from the panel, and it is not connecting me to the internet or showing wireless APs.I am able to get online using command line so it is only a minor problem but still a hassle.how can something so vital break so easily?Also nm-applet is listed in my processes and is "sleeping"?
For some reason when I booted today the network manager icon to disconnect and connect to different wireless networks was missing. I've read various post and have been unable to resolve this issue. Here is what I've tried.
1. Clicking in Add Panel and adding network monitor. This seems to be not included on the list of choices.
2. Clicking in Add Panel and click the Add Notification choice. This didn't seem to add anything to the panel.
3. Remove the Notification area and then re-add it. Did this and not the area is blank except for my dropbox icon. I don't have the date, logon or logoff dropdown, or network manager icon anymore. I've rebooted several times.
I can't connect to my wireless network anymore. Is there another way to manager wireless connections other then that panel tool?
I already restored regular icons by going to gconf. However, the icons on top right where the "power" button is located, still have no icons. Is there any way to add icons to the hibernate/ shut down , etc words?
I have an asus pc, and its network hardware is not recognized by debian, the drivers are not even in the list provided during the installation process. I managed to download them from another pc, but if i try to make them and install them, i'm stucked because Make is not installed on debian (nor is sudo).So i need a connection to install the drivers that provide me a co0nnections..
At first I use to have a Network manager applet for my wireless connection in the panel. But somehow it has gone missing from the panel. I am quite puzzle as to how it happen. So I just need to get it back so that I know whether or not it has been connected to my wireless router.
(Ubuntu 10.04)I've been struggling for over a week now to get the network-manager icon back in the notification applet. I don't exactly know how and when it disappeared, but I have not been able to get it back eversince. I need it to start a VPN connection.To be clear:- The notification applet is running (battery icon etc is showing)- Network manager is running- Wireless connection works flawlesslyWhat I've tried so far:Solution 1 (did not work)
