    I rather suggest you to manually install the required packages needed for network manager!!

Subject: [ubuntu-in] Problem with Network-manager on ubuntu 9.10


A few days back my mobile broadband device (ZTE EVDO AC8700) stopped working on Ubuntu 9.10 (Ultimate). This distro had been updated recently but i faced no problems after the updates.

The mobile broadband just refused to work, i logged into windows to see if there was a signal and if it worked, after some struggle it started to work. I then booted up a live Ubuntu 9.10 CD and there too this device got working.

I thought the problem might be with the network-manager so i went an uninstalled it hoping to install an older version, but now i get an error while installing 

error message from synaptic while selecting  network-manager-gnome for installation

"Package network-manager-gnome has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list"

any idea what this means.

So net result is i am unable to get back the network-manager tool on my panel

Any idea how to re-install this app

am currently using the said device by setting it up under gnome-ppp,
