Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager Doesn't Show Up In Notification Area
Jun 8, 2010
im just getting the hang of ubuntu 9.10, and then all of a sudden 10.04 comes over and screws everything up with the upgrade. i did the upgrade, and now the network manager wont show up in notification areas. any clue as to why? help is greatly appreciated. also, my machine does register that the drivers for wireless card is installed, and when i run lshw -c net command with sudo priveleges, it says it can detect networks, so im confused as hell.
On about 90% of bootups I find that network manager has disappeared from the notification area to be replaced by a random duplicate of one of the other icons (at random). If I remove the notification area and add it again all is fine.
am new to ubuntu, have some issues with connecting to wireless. I have downloaded my wireless drivers and installed, I can see that my wireless is on from the indicatior, but I cant connect to any wireless access point because I cant locate network manager on the notification area. Am using Dell inspiron 1501.The second issue I have is connecting as root. after I installed ubuntu, it created a user for me which I specified during installation, but most things am doing requires root privilleges. I cant connect as root because I dont know root password, I have tried changing the password but it doesn't go. Pls guys help me sort out these issues.
i have checked, network manager is installed, just the problem is i cant see it in the notification area... ppl keep telling me to add it on the panel and it will show, well its not... all i see are 3 small dashes stacked on each other. The network manager is running
So, there is no Network Manager in the system notification area, but it is turned on, as you can see from the pic. below So i thought it is a bug... and better to ask you about this problem.I'm using latest ubuntu 10.04 (x64 version).Just for information.I had problem with NM before, in Ubuntu 9.10,it cannot make internet connection. I've reported and it suppose to be some bug with user privileges not with NM at all.I was hoping that lycid will be more reliable but there is no NM or I am blind.
I deleted all APs in my Wireless Section of network manager. After that, the whole network manager icon disappeared. I added the icon back on the panel, but I don't think its the right one. It doesn't do the two green cicles thing when I connect my ethernet wire in. It also doesn't show any wireless AP when I left click on the icon. It doesn't even have an X mark on the bottom left of the icon when no network is detected
I've installed GNOME 3 on my Gentoo Linux, it really awesome and I love it.But here is a little glitch that I don't get used to: The notification area is hide until I hit "Windows" key or move the mouse cursor to the right-bottom corner.Since I've some program use the notification to indicate their status (for example, my Chinese input method use this to indicate whether I'm in English mode or Chinese mode. And a program that show the CPU temperature on the notification area).It becomes a little inconvenient if I've to move the cursor or hit "Windows" key just in order to check those status.
So is it possible to make the notification area always show on the screen? Or is it possible to integrate the notification area to menu bar just like GNOME 2.X or XFCE4?Besides that, I would like to know is it possible to remove the accessibility on the menu bar top-right corner?
I made the upgrade to 10.10 the other day, and it's pretty functional. The few problem that keep erking me are as follows: 1. Often when I boot up the gnome-panel is buggy, I run Code:
gnome-panel --replace to fix this, which it does. I'd just like it to look normal at boot up.
2. The GDM (or compiz) doesn't boot up correct all of the time. Every now and then I'll open a program after booting and will have no minimize/restore/exit buttons. I fix this buy just turning compiz on using the compiz-switch icon which I put up in my panel. 3. Why doesn't rhythmbox minimize to the notification area. I like the mini player in sound menu, but I hate that if you want it out of your system tray it has to be closed.
Hi. I have Ubuntu 10.04, nm-applet is running in the background, my battery icon and sound icon are showing but my network icon has been missing for the past 2 days. It was working fine before but now it's not. How can I fix this issue if I don't have an ethernet cord? Is there a way to roll back the recent updates or do I need to reinstall my network manager?
I've tried restarting the system and I've tried killing nm-applet and reloading it using Alt F2. I get some Debug error.
When I try to run nm-applet --sm-disable
It says an instance is already running and then gives me a warning.
I tried removing "iface eth0 inet dhcp" from /etc/network/interfaces and then tried restarting by "sudo /etc/initi.d/networking restart"
What can I do to connect to the internet? I have a flash stick if its possible to download a .deb package on this mac and transfer it over to my other laptop to fix the problem. If its possible.
I am a naive user in ubuntu and firstly, I do not get a network icon on my notification area. Secondly, when I connect using pon dsl-provider, my connection stays for sometime but it doesn't remain for long. I have to reconnect and again the connection is shortlived...
Today when i log in my fedora 12 i find that the network connection icon gone from the notification area. SO i can't connect to internet using fedora.How can I restore network connection in notification area.
While my wifi still is working just fine (I'm here aren't I), the Network Manager has disappeared from the Notification Area on my panel upon reboot.Have all current patches, so have no clue what to do. Most likely is a bug.
I'm trying to search for more wireless networks but i cannot find a way to make network manager search for more wireless networks. It only displays 2 wireless networks and none of them is mine, even though I've got my wireless router at less than 1 meter from my PC.
I have two wifi routers. If I stand next to the main one with my laptop I can connect and access the internet no problem. The other router is in my office, and the bridging is messed up, so while I see the essid and bssid using 'iwlist scanning' and nm-tool, I can't connect to it.
Now, my main router's signal still reaches to my office, just not as strong as the borked router in my office. I need to be able to choose which wifi network to connect to without wasting time walking between rooms. I added entries for both in network-manager, but it doesn't show them in the list when I left click the tray icon! How the do I connect to the network I want?
I'm on Windows 7 64bit and Ubuntu 11.04 64bit.Windows is on a net book with not so much hard drive space so I want to keep all my music and movies on my hard drive of my Ubuntu desktop. When I try to find my Ubuntu machine I get nothing though..No matter what though, Win7 simply will not see it on the network. Not even when I run "\ipadress"..If anything is there away to delete everything related to Samba and start over?
I have been routing network traffic based on MAC addresses, so we can distribute traffic evenly over a series of WAN IP addresses.Everything seems to be going well, but I have a very curious problem. One of the users can connect to the network without problem, but I don't see him in my network administration application (neither his MAC address or leased IP address).At the same time, I'm trying to identify other unknown computers on my network based on MAC addresses I don't have on file.
I had network manager running on my netbook karma install, but when I installed VNC as another display, logged into that other display and accidentally clicked on not to run network manager on startup cause there is already one running, it screwed up the network manager auto startup on my normal netbook display.I tried adding it back into auto start in settings but that has not worked.As always, thanks for any help you can give me getting this to auto start again on login, without deleting my kde cache(cos it is setup the way I want it).
so i am about a week into using ubuntu. installed it on an old hp laptop that i pieced back together, using a broadcom wireless chip set. got all the drivers loaded and working, on any other network the notification area will display that it is connected no problem. but on my home network it will connect to the wireless but the notification icon will still look like there is no connection.
something that may be useful to know is that i originally plugged the laptop into the the router via wire to download the wireless card drivers.
I have run Fedora 9 and 10 on my Dell Inspiron 640m for about 6 months now and generally experience very few issues with it. Specifically I've been running Fedora 10 KDE 64bit since it was launched. Up until I had to reload it a couple of weeks ago my Vodafone Huawei E172 3G dongle worked perfectly with Network Manager. Since the reload the dongle is detected by the OS (lsusb lists it correctly, etc) but nothing I do will make it appear in Network Manager.
I've tried manually configuring a GSM connection then plugging it in, but no joy. I've also tried using it in my Acer Aspire One which runs Fedora 10 XFCE and it work, but when I try it in another Dell Laptop running Fedora 10 KDE 64 bit it doesn't. I'm assuming that a recent update must have caused some issue as it has definitely worked in both Dell laptops in the past. As mentioned I've reloaded recently but the other laptop hasn't been.
I'm unsure where to go from here. I haven't been able to get Vodafone's beta drivers working under F10 (although I did under F9) and can't find any posts on this issue. The version of Network Manager that I'm running is NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.src.rpm, which was released shortly before I reloaded. Chances are I just didn't try my dongle between the update coming out and the reload, so didn't notice the problem before hand.
I have installed WvDial (apparently) but it has no icon or launcher to start it by default, how do i get it to run? I also need basic set up how to. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and network manager doesn't seem to be able to use my modem to connect to the internet (set up wizard works, appears connected, but then I get page not found error). Hence I wish to use WvDial to try to connect instead.
I have the following problem: There are three NFS mounts in /etc/fstab, which are automatically mounted. The network connection runs over NetworkManager. Since NWM brings up the network asynchronously, NFS doesn't mount correctly on the first try, but is loaded soon enough since mount automatically retries until it works.
I can live with the fact that I have an error in my boot messages, since everything is up in time for the user. But, I need a (selfmade) upstart script which depends on the NFS mount being up. Even using "remote-filesystems" as the trigger doesn't help, because the trigger is apparently sent after the first failed try (I checked with cat /proc/mounts in my script, the nfs mounts are clearly not up.) Can I somehow force the remote mounts to wait until NWM is up, or make the NFS mount emit an event when the mounts really get mounted?
Network manager doesn't recognize nas0 interface and i have problems with using Gwibber, Evolution mail,Empathy, etc Is there any way to add nas0 in Network manager?? I know the solution to remove Network manager, but i need Network manager because i'm often using wireless (as second internet connection).
This is on Lucid, using a Dell Mini. I installed the required packages for a USB tether to my iPhone. Network Manager recognized it immediately as wwan0, but it doesn't connect. Also, it never asks me for the password to connect to the Personal Hotspot (as it does when I can connect from Windows).
The only problem I have is that I can not remove notification bar from the top and place it in bottom. I am getting the error in the enclosed screenshot. Is there any body know how to solve this problem. I have gone trhough all steps in the above link and only left is to set the notification area
I was used to use the network and battery icon in the notification are (next to the sound and date/time). Now the bluetooth, battery, network, sound and envelope icon are visible, but there is no responds clicking on it.Pressing the mute-button on the keyboard changes the icon in the notification area. Also connecting a wireless network changes the icon.But to change network is becoming impossible by clicking the icon (and I do not know an other way to change it).The only thing I can think of was whitelisting all programs:Code:sudo gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"This was the only change I made.EDIT: Icons of external programs do respond.
Just upgraded to Natty. After I've been logged on for a few minutes, the notification area (hope I have the right term) just freezes up. This means I can't access the drop-down menus for sound, wireless, battery, and tomboy notes. I've done a quick search and haven't found any helpful information.
