    Should I remove network manager?

    I have been using eth0 / dhcp ip and eth0:1 static ip in my Feisty. Now in Hardy I have always restart network after boot to get my one wire double net to work. Is it better to remove Network manager or change to other, perhaps NM makes problems? How easily take wireless card to use if necessary without NM?

    Re: Should I remove network manager?

    just try disabling it this way:

    Code:
    sudo touch /etc/default/NetworkManager
    sudo touch /etc/default/NetworkManagerDispatcher
    echo "exit" | sudo tee -a /etc/default/NetworkManager
    echo "exit" | sudo tee -a /etc/default/NetworkManagerDispatcher
    then reboot.

    if you wish to start using NetworkManager again, simply delete these two files like so:
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/default/NetworkManager
    sudo rm /etc/default/NetworkManagerDispatcher
    reboot, and NetworkManager will be active again.

    How do I get Network Manager to appear in the panel again?

    right click on panel > add to panel

    you should see network-manager in the list.

    if that does not work, add the "notification area" instead.

    i had trouble getting it to come back too.

    here's what finally worked:

    edit /etc/rc.local with the following command
    Code:
    gksudo nano /etc/rc.local
    and add "NetworkManager" above "exit 0", so that it looks like this
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh -e
    #
    # rc.local
    #
    # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
    # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
    # value on error.
    #
    # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
    # bits.
    #
    # By default this script does nothing.
    
    NetworkManager
    exit 0
    then reboot, and the network manager applet will be in your notification area.
