almost. Thanks for this pointer, which led me to discover the right 
package,
which is "plasma-nm".

For the record, in plasma you may launch /usr/bin/nm-applet from the 
prompt, and it will dock
in the plasma panel, but not sit there at reboot even if you create an
autostart .desktop  file for it.

To Liam: no, this is not kubuntu, is standard ubuntu on which I had 
second thoughts,
and added the kde/plasma packages afterwards.

Thanks,
Marco
