I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, and when running in GNOME Classic I no longer see an icon for the nm-applet in the top panel. However the applet is running:
jsteele@jsteele-00:~$ ps aux | grep nm-applet jsteele 2767 0.0 0.2 454584 16576 ? Sl 08:57 0:01 nm-applet jsteele 3304 0.0 0.0 9260 900 pts/0 S+ 09:32 0:00 grep --color=auto nm-applet
I noticed that I can actually click on the far right "pixel" of the panel and I get the nm-applet menu (so it is present and functional, just not visible). Ideally I would like an icon to be visible.
In Unity the nm-applet icon is present and operates as I would expect - is this a compatibility issue between Unity and GNOME Classic?
(Possibly similar to this question, but doesn't indicate that the applet is still operational and sufficiently different for me to raise this separate question; equally there isn't an answer that resolves the issue for me: Network Manager icon doesn't appear in top panel)
