I am using Linux Mint 13. It is based on Ubuntu, so I think I can ask here.

I had problem with wireless network after upgrading the OS, and figured out that NetworkManager is not starting automatically on boot. Currently, I can have wireless access provided that I manually type

sudo /usr/sbin/NetworkManager

but I want this to happen automatically, and also the booting of the OS is slow due to this. On boot, It displays a message saying something like "booting without full network", and that is taking more time than usual.

How can I make that command run automatically at boot?

Just add it to /etc/rc.local

I did that, and now, the whole OS crashes after booting. I think there is a serious bug related to NetworkManager. I removed the line again, and the system has the same problem as before. – sawa Jul 2 '12 at 8:17
