I faced a strange nm-applet issue. Lan was configured with DHCP and I wanted to configure it with Static IP. I opened nm-applet->edit connections and made the required modifications, pressed save. It gets saved without any problem. I closed the application, restart the connection. But when I checked the ip, the old value is still there.
Is there something wrong with my nm-applet?When I click on the network icon I get "wireless networks - device not managed"mariannemarlow@crunchbang:~$ nm-applet
An instance of nm-applet is already running.
Hi to all, after an update, I'm not able to run nm-applet anymore. I'm talking only about the applet for gnome 3 because the connection is working, it's just that I can't see the applet and therefore can't add/remove other networks for example.Can someone help me fix this?
You don't really want to be using anything gnome, as if its a gnome-panel applet it wont work in tint2. If I wanted to have netspeed info at boot up I would configure conky to show it. But I think you can put some pretty ugly netspeed applets in the tint2 panel dock though- just as ugly as the gnome ones. Or you might want to try fbpanel.
Try first reinstalling network-manager-gnome (for nm-applet) even if it is already installed (use synaptic)Log out; log back in.Maybe also, when you first boot, then log in, and you don't see nm-applet -- try logging out and log back in. Maybe nm-applet isn't showing up the first time you log in (after a boot) due to other startup programs and timing..
