Ok. So I was trying to get vpnc installed an working to connect to an ASA firewall. I was having problems so I ran the command:
sudo apt-get remove vpnc
However, when I did that, it left the vpn connections menu item in network-manager. I then decided to give the Cisco created vpn client (4.8) a go. But I was having problems with that one. So I decided to reinstall vpnc, but when I did, the menu tab complained that "no suitable software..." so I couldn't create a vpn profile.
I figured the best way to deal with this (much to discredit) is to remove network-manager and have ubuntu reinstall it. But now, I can't find it in the synaptic package manager anymore and when I choose it in add/remove it gives me an error about not being an i386 package. If I run:
sudo apt-get install network-manager from the CLI, it tells me that there is no candidate in the sources.list.
So can anyone give me an idea as to how to get network-manager back on my PC?
