    invisible networkmanager?

    So I just installed Lubuntu-minimal 11.10 on my friends asus eeepc 701, and then did sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop and it's working nicely but nm-applet appears as a blank space in the tray and when I click on this it says that ethernet and wireless are not managed.
    Any idea what's going on?
    thanks in advance

    edit: sudo ifconfig wlan0 down doesnt help either

    do you need to install additional packages?

    also sometimes the apps in the app tray just conk out, don't know why restart usually fixes

    you're perhaps missing a daemon that takes control of these things. ive always used wicd and wicd-daemon with this kinda setup but it isn't necessarily better
