Is there a network manager docklet shipped with Docky? If not, how can I add one?

Same problem here. On a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 install, I installed Docky 2.0.7-1 from the package manager and from docky-core/ppa. Neither version had a Network Manager docket (or anything similar). – Nick Feb 4 '11 at 13:30
I'm having the same problem. I've added the PPA and am running version 2.0.7. I don't have a network manager or volume docklet :( – user6255 Feb 4 '11 at 13:31

You should be able to find it in Docky Settings -> Docklets -> Network Manager. If it isn't mentioned there, then I would assume you need a newer version. You can try this stable PPA:

Or use the development PPA:

The development PPA would be the most up-to-date one, but there's a higher risk of bugs.

in docky 2.0.7 on Ubuntu 10.10, there's no network manager docklet.

The network-manager docklet isn't installed with the distribution package due dependency limitations.

This has been apparently been resolved in the ppa that Ward mentions in his answer -- I've got the docklet and I'm running that ppa. – belacqua Feb 4 '11 at 5:27
