    try clicking the network indicator in the top bar it goes directly to network settings. It may not work since it seems to be part of system settings , worth a try though .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    First, you need to know your network interface

    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    or 
    ip address show
    Let's say your interface is wlan0, do some scanning for available wireless network

    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    To connect, try this

    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORK_ID key s:WIRELESS_KEY
    NETWORK_ID is name of network, And WIRELESS_KEY is the key

    then,

    Code:
    sudo dhclient wlan0

    What doesn't look right? It has some code to adapt to display better on small screens.

    All is fine now after latest dist-upgrade. Previously, when I open Appearance, i cannot see Launcher icon size settings(on a netbook). Please look at my attachment on previous post, you will know what i mean>http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.p...3&d=1353640823
