    That second network icon is from Unity 8. This is the package: indicator-network. If you don't have Unity 8 installed it is most likely safe to remove that package.

    The default NetworkManager icon comes from: network-manager-gnome.

    Shouldn't it be a bug that it shows in Unity 7?

    hey, thanks for suggestion! the problem is that if i try to uninstall indicator-network with synaptic it also want to uninstall several other packages that i need (ubuntu-system-settings, account-plugin-ubuntuone...). i also found out that i have at lest some packages of unity 8 installed (unity8, unity8-private, unity8-fake-env). any suggestion how to uninstall not needed packages (the indicator especially) without breaking something?

    If you want to have Unity 8 than for all I know you can't remove indicator-network.

    The ubuntu-system-settings is also a package needed by Unity 8. The system settings for regular Unity 7 in 14.04 are provided by unity-control-center.

    Re: [ubuntu] Two NetworkManager icons after upgrading to Trusty

    This happened to my install 3-4 weeks ago following an update.

    Easiest way to resolve is to stop the 'network' application in startup applications.

    When you run 'startup applications' you will find that the standard ones are invisible. To see these, see instructions at ...

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sh...upApplications

    Following this, unticking 'network', reboot, and bingo, only one icon.

    Do you have the Proposed repository enabled? If so you will get stuff like that. I installed Unity 8 session manager and I got the phone/tablet Network Manager icon as well as the standard Network Manager icon.

    It is intended that 14.04 users will have the option of loading into a Unity 8 review session but whether that option will be provided by default or the user will need to install something, I cannot say. But this stuff is being offered for testing through the proposed repository.

    If you look in the Dash you will also find Browser, the Ubuntu Web Browser from the phone/tablet code base. That is installed now by default. It is all part of the convergence strategy that intended to be completed by the release of 14.10. So, expect to see a lot more of this kind of thing, especially if we keep on the development branch.

    Oh, by the way, over the last few days I have been getting Click packaging stuff as well.

    Regards.

    the problem with this is that it disables the wrong (unity7) icon. and unity8 one doesn't fully work so it can't really replace the old one for me.
    also unity7 network isn't present in the startup applications.
