    Question Wireless Icon Disappeared - how to reinstall network config tool

    I was recently trying to swap the default gnome bluetooth manager for blue man, and so I uninstalled the gnome bluetooth manager to force the transition.

    After that, my wireless button disappeared from the panel. I have tried adding the "notification area" applet to the panel again, but it does not include the wireless icon.

    I might just reinstall the OS anyway, but if someone knows how to fix this, that would be great.

    Thanks

    Thanks!

    turns out I somehow uninstalled the gnome network manager tool.

    When I went to run the command, it told me where the package could be found. I connected to ethernet, ran

    sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
    It automatically put the applet back into the startup list, and all was well.

    Thanks again, you're a lifesaver!
