Network indicator (SOLVED)
« on: May 05, 2019, 12:16:18 am »
I travel from time to time and take my netbook (w/P8). How do I show the network indicator on my panel? Sometimes opening a browser will take me to a login page, but sometimes not.

You're going to have to explain that a little better .. there should already be a network-manager panel applet, or do you mean something else ?

There was an applet indicator  on the panel when I installed P8. It seems to have since disappeared.
BTW, when I go to Peppermint Settings > Network > Network Manager and click, nothing opens.

What happens if you open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
nm-connection-editor
?

Are you able to connect to the internet at all on this PC ?

I was told that I didn't have connection-editor-gnome installed, but it gave instructions how to do so. I installed it, an Voila, my indictor is back!

I was, but only to connections that I had used previously. Now I can see all networks in my area. All good now. Thanks!
