Basically, I chose to give Ubuntu Studio another try (after it had annoyed me with it's lack of wifi), but the problem is that there's no network manager applet in the indicator area (i added it in the top right, the panel's set up as it would be in normal Ubuntu)Using Wifi Radar, i think that the wifi card works in the preempt kernel, it's just that i don't want to use Wifi Radar all the time, can prove to be annoying.
When i start nm-applet, a small space opens up in the indicator applet. I'm not sure if that's something important.Has someone managed to get this to work? (i've installed network-manager and network-manager-applet)
I had too many issues with 10.04 so reinstalled 9.10 for now.In the process of customizing the panel, I accidentally deleted the network and sound icons and there isn't any option I can find in the menu to restore it. How do I go about getting those back?
On my netbook, I'm experimenting with removing any panels or window navigators completely, and using synapse for launching applications. But I've encountered a quite annoying problem, as the only stable solution I've found for connecting to wireless applications is the applet used in the gnome panel. I've tried the Wicd Network Manager, but it keeps disconnecting without reason.
Is there another program for connecting wireless, or maybe a way to use applets without a panel/window navigator?
Accidentally I removed the NM Applet from the panel and I am trying to reset it. When I right-click on the panel and "Add to Panel", I couldn't see Network Manager. Hence I couldn't connect to the available wireless network. I am able to add Network Monitor, which is similar to Network manager, but this just displays info about current network.
I upgraded from 9.0X to 10.04 on my Sony Vaio VGN-TZ398U which has an internal Sprint mobile broadband card. The card operates properly along with the wireless. The problem that I am having since upgrading is that the Network Manager Applet icon that looks like a cell phone bar display does not show in the notification area at all unless there is a known wireless (wifi) network nearby.
Clarification: If I am in my car, the icon does not show which then makes it impossible to connect using the mobile broadband functions of the Network Manager Applet ( version 0.8 ). If I am in my office with a known wireless network, the icon shows and then I can switch to the mobile card.
I have tried removing the notification area from the panel and adding it again. I have done the same with the indicator applet. Neither has solved this problem.
I use network manager applet 0.7.1. I had set the automatic wireless connection to my my wireless network (WPA key secured). Recently, I get the following problem: At the automatic connection, I get the message: Network manager applet (/usr/bin/mn-applet) needs default keyering. As I don't know what it is to type it and then, deny or OK, it doesn't get connected to my wireless network.
I cant use the option "export" from the VPN settings in the Gnome Network Manager, when I tried to export a popup says "Unknown error"This happend also in 11.3 and now in 11.4, so it is a nm-applet problema I think... Is there any other way to export my VPN connections?
I have such an annoying problem that I really don't know how to fix! Basically for some reason the nm-applet icon just doesn't sit in the panel anymore, but it's floating on the desktop as a normal application. Restarting/reinstalling it doesn't solve the problem, it's still out of the panel. With any theme I use. It's a pretty fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 on a MacBook Pro, so there are no particular customizations. The only workaround I found is installing wicd, but I'm really not familiar with it and want to get rid of it.
In the process of removing all hints of KDE from my system I accidentally uninstalled on of my panel applets.It is the one that says the users full login name and allows you to control gwibber status and empathy availability.I know it's kinda OCD but my desktop looks weird without it.
I'd like to put an applet exactly in the middle of my Gnome Panel, I can't do it manually as the applet size varies so I need a way to put it in the middle always. The applet is dockbarX (a window list) so when I open or close a window the size of the applet changes and then it's not in the middle. Here you are an screenshot of what I'm talking about:[URL]..
When I installed 10.04, I got rid of the messenger applet from the panel at the top since I always used webmail. I found a way to have the messenger applet automatically check and display new emails, but now I don't know how to add the applet back. Its icon looked like an envelope. I've tried the add to panel command, but don't see that one listed.
It showed up once I upgraded to Lucid. The inhibit applet keeps disappearing from the panel. It doesn't matter where I place it, if it's locked in place, or what panel I've placed it on; it will be there, but then disappear once I reboot the computer and log back in to the desktop. It shows as an empty space where the icon used to be; right clicking the blank space gives me the standard context menu for the panel instead of the context menu for the inhibit applet. The only way I can get the icon to reappear is if I go to the panel properties and fidget around with the Expand and Hide Buttons options. Does anyone have this same problem?
I installed Sensors Applet & hddtemp. Installation was smooth, all of my devices were automatically detected and all seemed good.Then I restart the computer, and when everything comes back up, the processor, MB, and GPU are all working (showing a temperature) but none of the (6) hard drives are showing a temperature. After fiddling around with it I found that removing the applet from the panel, and then adding it back again fixes the problem. But then the next time I restart the computer it breaks again.
the nm-applet seems to have disappeared from the top panel, whenever I run the command it gives me the output:
Code: ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area ** (nm-applet:8695): DEBUG: old state indicates that this was not a disconnect 0 ** (nm-applet:8695): DEBUG: old state indicates that this was not a disconnect 0 ** (nm-applet:8695): DEBUG: old state indicates that this was not a disconnect 0 ** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area
I have tried the --sm-disable parameter but that doesn't help ether
I want the mail icon (indicator applet) in the panel to open thunderbird when I click mail, and when I click "new message" that tbird message opens. I've already got the notification going, and I have removed evolution.
I must be overlooking something here, but I can't find out how to add "Alarm Clock Applet" to my panel. In Ubuntu Software Center, there's a picture of the program right in the panel and feature to add to panel, but there's no option for me to do this. "Add to Panel" doesn't have the application either.
In 11.04 on a Dell Latitude D610 laptop, there are two logins. User1 has sudo privs, User2 does not.When either user logs in, network-manager picks up on whatever remembered wireless network is available, connects, and the nm icon shows in the panel.If the other user logs in (via Switch User), the connection persists, but the nm icon does not show in the panel.
Under 11.04 it appears there is no way to put the nm icon back in the panel, even when the connection is set to "available to all users", and even when the user missing the icon is User1 (who has sudo privs).If control is now switched back to the first user who logged in, the nm icon is still there, and the system is still connected, but if that user logs off (rather than clicking Switch User), the connection is dropped, and when the other user gives their password to resume their session, there is now neither connection nor an icon with which it can be re-established.
This would appear to be a bug, but is there a way to ***FORCE*** the nm icon to appear in the panel? The connection is already set to "available to all users", and doing a networking start does not do anything. Under 11.04 it appears that there is no way to make any icon appear in the panel if it is not already there.
This might seem dumb, but I have a wifi applet stuck on the upper left corner of the desktop (on the desktop, not on any panel) that I can't get rid. I've never seen this before.When on panel there is kind of a "handle" that I can right click which then I can "remove from panel. There is no such handle on the desktop, if I right click on the applet it would just display the wifi menu.
technically, this is UNR with lxde installed after extended UNR use. i like being able to hit my power button in gnome, and getting a message asking what you want to do, or cancel if needed. well, in lxde, the shutdown button brings up a similar message. could i map the power button to show that popup in lxde?
I frequently travel between San Diego and Boston. I am able to add "Locations" to Gnome's Clock applet, which seems like it should take care of time zone information (see attached screenshot). However, I can't figure out how to set one (or the other) as my current location so that it will update my time zone information.
With a fresh lucid install on my new dell mini v10 when I'm connected to the internet the wrong icon is displayed on the panel by nm-applet. The no connection icon with the red exclamation mark is displayed when the normal wireless network connection icon should be shown. By the way I'm using the proprietary broadcom drivers for the wireless
