    Issues with connman and reinstalling network-manager-gnome

    I'm a moron and installed Connman (It certainly conned me!) like a complete idiot, and it, as it always does, uninstalls the other network manager. Connman doesn't like me, and I refuse to use it. I use Xubuntu 12.10, with OpenBox instead of XFCE. I was going to try out Enlightenment, which requires connman, but oh no, not now! I will stick to OpenBox. I only have this single computer, with a WIRELESS ONLY connection. So does anyone have a compressed folder or something with network-manager-gnome with ALL dependencies or something magical like this? The way I am accessing the web right now is through a seperate Windows 7 partition. I desperately want this fixed. Windows 7 is beginning to tear at my soul.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: I'm an idiot. Issues with connman and resintalling network-manager-gnome!

    By the way, I've got a USB Flash drive with a Live Xubuntu 12.10 installation on it, so if I can just use that to get all of the packages, please let me know! I haven't figured out how I could accomplish this, but if it's do-able, tell me please!

    Hi Jakssoul.

    First option: there's a chance the the deb package is in the cache.

    Go to this directory:
    Code:
    /var/cache/apt/archives
    and look for file like this:
    Code:
    network-manager*.deb
    If it's there, you can install it by doing:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i network-manager*.deb
    Second option: Identify your package name, and download it from any computer with a browser.

    Open a terminal and run:
    Code:
    apt-cache policy network-manager
    The result would be something like this:
    Code:
    network-manager:
      Installed: 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu4.2
      Candidate: 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu4.2
      Version table:
     *** 0.9.4.0-0ubuntu4.2 0
            500 http://ubuntu.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main amd64 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
         0.9.4.0-0ubuntu3 0
            500 http://ubuntu.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ubuntu/ precise/main amd64 Packages
    Take note of the version detail (in red).

    Using any OS and browser to your disposal, and go to: http://packages.ubuntu.com/. There you can search for the network-manager package, and then for the specific version you are looking.

    Once downloaded, you can use a USB stick to copy the file into your machine.

    Finally, boot into it, and install the package using the previous 'dpkg' command.

    Hope it helps. Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    Method two worked - sort of. It installed the network manager. Now, I don't know how to configure the network using Terminal, and I'm not getting my friendly little GUI taskbar thing. I'd prefer the friendly little taskbar thing. Any idea why it's not appearing?

    Re: Issues with connman and reinstalling network-manager-gnome

    Did you uninstall connman?

    You can run the network-manager tool from the terminal like this:
    Code:
    nm-connection-editor

    I purged that bastard, connman. Uninstall wouldn't have made me feel good enough. Hahaha, I'll try that out now.

    Re: Issues with connman and reinstalling network-manager-gnome

    nm-connection-editor Requires network-manager-gnome , which I have downloaded a .deb of, but it clearly isn't the correct one, as sudo dpkg -i networkblahblah******.deb has LOADS of unresolved dependencies and isn't compatible with network-manager. Where should I get one that works with network-manager? I got network-manager 9.6.0.

    network-manger_0.9.6.0-0ubuntu7_i386.deb to be exact.
