I use ubuntu netbook edition on a Samnsung N150. Used to work fine.

* But network manager does not appear at startup anymorw.
* Under preferences > I have the following enabled ...
nm-applet --sm-enable

Because this is ubuntu netbook edition I don't have the standard menu to access > system etc ....

What else can I try ???

Advance thanks,

Hi,
If the network manager icon is not appearing, but it has been, than it can be fixed using the following commands typed into a terminal:[just copy & paste the lines in green to a terminal :)]
(Change current directory to the home directory):
cd
(Backup in case anything goes wrong!):
mv .gnome .gnome-bak && mv .gnome2 .gnome2-bak && mv .gconf .gconf-bak && mv .gconfd .gconfd-bak && mv .metacity .metacity-bak
Remove the current config files:
rm -rv .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
Now reboot your system(or just simply log out and log back in),when you are done with it you should have the default setup back!
