Re: network manager applet missing in pane in 10.04
I tried all of the above and none worked for me.
I switched from WICD to Network Manager. My reasons are irrelevant to this thread other than I could not get the NM applet to appear on the task bar.
This is what worked for my by shear accident:
I tried adding the notification applet as others had posted and it did not work for me. I could see tiny lines on the bar where I added the notification applet multiple times.
To clean things up, I removed all of the tiny lines from the task bar.
The last set of lines also removed the HP icon. I thought, "I am making this an even bigger problem!"
So I added the notification applet one more time after cleaning things up. Wala! Not only did the HP icon come up but also the Network Manager came up!
I determined that the notification applet will not work if posted multiple times. Only the first addition of the notification applet worked. Since I already had the notification applet up displaying the HP icon, adding it again was not going to display the Network Manager. It was only after accidentally removing all postings of the notification applet did everything actually work.
