View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network manager trouble

July 8th, 2009, 11:18 AM
i am new to ubuntu, and while trying to set up a static ip, i uninstalled network manager and have no internet connection on that computer. however, many people say this was bad advice and i can't re install it. is there any way to reinstall network manager gnome without internet connection?

i have tried setting up the static ip address but it won't give me permission to save the file now that i have edited the network interface.

is there anything i can do?

You can go to the Ubuntu Packages website:

On an internet-connected computer, download the network-manager and network-manager-gnome .deb packages for your appropriate Ubuntu release (9.04 is Jaunty, 8.10 is Intrepid, 8.04 is Hardy).

Transfer them to the desktop folder of your Ubuntu computer (via USB stick, I guess).

Then, in the terminal (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/terminal), type
cd ~/Desktop
sudo dpkg -i network*.deb
