View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network manager or application, but not both!!!

September 30th, 2008, 03:26 AM
Today an upgrade was made and thereby the Networkmanager has been again replaced from 0.7 to again another 0.7 (I am puzzled about that too, no change of versions anymore????)

Now a bug from 2005 has been re-introduced.

1. it connects now to the Internet without asking you for the wireless key again, but

2. as long you are connected, no application can be opened !!!

Stupid way I could do:
1. close the wireless connection
2. start skype and pidgen
3. reconnect to the wireless again

However, that is not a solution to disconnect to be able to open an application (including a terminal to figure out what happens)

PLEASE hear my prayers and fix it as soon as possible!!!!!

Using pre-release software is not recommended, besides, if you want something fixed in Ubuntu, launchpad.net is the place to ask. Here, most people are just regular users like yourself. Good luck.
