I installed a minimal Ubuntu with a complete and functional GUI, but facing a few problems:
- nm-applet's icon won't show in the notification area, but I can connect to wired internet fine. I am not able to configure my wireless or VPN this way.
- gksu's authentication screen is different from the usual graphical authentication - the screen turns gray as usual, but there are more options like save password for this session or keyring. And most importantly, it won't accept my password no matter what.
- And lastly, Gwibber seems to install no matter what, but there's not a single package in my knowledge that I installed has anything related to Gwibber.
I would welcome any help regarding these three issues. I did not mention what packages I installed, because the list is long, but I will do so if anyone requests.
Thank you in advance!
As you can see from the solution I posted, the problems are pretty much solved. However, I'd love to know what exactly hrhnick's solution did and the possible workarounds to the Gwibber issue.
