Just installed Xubuntu 10.04 via the alt install CD.
I would like to configure my wireless card.
Nowhere did the install attempt to utilize the wireless card, opting to config the eth0 wired connection instead.
When I use the menus, I can't find a network control panel anywhere in Xubuntu 10.04 virgin install. All the Ubuntu docs point to using network manager.
Applications>System>... there is no network manager choice. There are no items named network at all under System.
Applications>Network>... contains choices that use the network like: Firefox, Thunderbird, Transmission. But no network control panel or network manager.
Applications>Accessories>Application Finder... does not find network manager anywhere.
sudo apt-get -us install network-manager
tells me that on my system, the installed
network-manager is already the newest version.
So how do I convince Xubuntu menus that network-manager is there?
FYI, my card is recognized and is using the ath5k driver.
iwlist scan will show lots of cells active nearby.
Can someone help me figure out which forum messages to follow and which to ignore, since most are depreciated by ath5k being in the kernel for Xubuntu 10.04 and the card being recognized automatically?
