System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager. This is where your applications and dependencies are kept. When selecting synaptic, it will ask you for your password, enter it, the in quick search type "network-manager" without the quote marks. Right click network-manager-gnome and select mark for installation. if it gives you other things that will be installed, click ok, as those are the dependencies needed for it to work. At the top you will see "Apply", click it and let it install. And you may want to read these, they are a great help to a beginner in Ubuntu:

Open a terminal
Applications>Accessories>Terminal
put this in and hit Enter

nm-applet
Post the output. If any.
Look and see if you have it in the top right toolbar. While the terminal is open.

If the network applet shows up while the terminal is open then here's how to restore it.
Close the terminal and Go to:

System->Preferences->Sessions

Go to "+ Add"

Then fill in the fields as follows:

Name: Network Manager
Command: nm-applet --sm-disable
Comment: Network Manager applet

And click "Save"

Then logout and log back in to and see if you have the applet on your tool bar.

jarett@ubuntu:~$ nm-applet
The program 'nm-applet' can be found in the following packages:

Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>

You misspelled install for network-manager, copy and paste this in terminal:

sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome

sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
Then you need to do as gettinoriginal says but that's not going to work if you have no network to begin with.

Which ubuntu are you running? 8.10 intrepid 32 bit, 64 bit, Hardy 8.04 or what?

jarett@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package network-manager-gnome

so is there no other way i can get this...

First, go to System > Administration > Software Sources, the first four boxes should be checked, then:

Run these two in terminal, one at a time:


sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list


wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Then check synaptic for network-manager

Ok, go to:

System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager
and search for
network-manager-gnome
When it finds it highlight it and select "Mark for Installation"
It may popup a box saying other things are required.

Take notes of everything it says it needs.
Mark them
Click on File then generate download script and save it somewhere.
Take it on a flash drive or in a shared folder to a pc that is online and double click the script choose "Run in Terminal" and it will download everything into the location where the script is.

I don't know if it will run on windows or not so if you don't have access to another linux pc and it wont run on windows then.

Go here to get network-manager-gnome (http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid-updates/i386/network-manager-gnome/download)

And this page has the other things that it may need here.
http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid-updates/network-manager-gnome
they are the dependencies.

Hope this helps some. May have more to add in a minute.

Once you download the packages you can go back to
System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager
Click on File then "Add downloaded Packages"
point it to where the packages are
and it will install them for you.

You could run the download script from the livecd. It would save you some hassle. After creating the script save it somewhere like a shared partition or flash drive. Boot up with the livecd, browse to the script and run it.

Then reboot into ubuntu without the livecd and your files would be where the script is you saved.

Think I found a deb for it http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/network-manager/network-manager_0.6.6-0ubuntu5.8.04.1_i386.deb

Download that and double click on it in ubuntu.

Found it here. http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/network-manager/
