Hi y'all,

This is my mail to the list.

Here is a fix for the missing (since at least 2010) nm-applet icon:

"[. . .]In the file /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf change
'managed=false' to 'managed=true,' then type in the terminal 'killall
nm-system-settings' and reboot [. . .]."

The link to this bug is:
