I've installed Wicd, and then removed it because I could not get the systray icon to appear.

Now, I can no longer access the account settings from the menu. By the Account Settings link, or via my username it is not working.

Any idea how I could go around this one?

  • Can you very clearly and precisely indicate how you try to get to the "account settings" (what do you mean with that?) – vanadium Sep 14 '18 at 9:50
  • On the to right corner. the arrows pointing down, I click on my username and select Account Settings. Or, still from the upper right corner, I click on the icon with the screwdriver to access the settings. None is working. And I just realised that right click on the desktop to change the background does not work either. I tried to installed the Desktop Preferences from the Repo, and when launching it, I got the message [Desktop manager is not active.] Looks like following the instruction from help.ubuntu.com/community/WICD – Gury Sep 14 '18 at 18:06
  • @vanadium Let me know if further info is required on this one. From what I can see, anything which is control from the Settings is no longer working. I was following the steps provided on the link posted above about Wicd, so uninstall and then reinstall the Network Manager. Not sure how this could have broken so many things. – Gury Sep 14 '18 at 18:47

Ok, looks like it is resolved. For some reason, after following the instruction to install, and then remove Wicd, I had lost the Gnome Control Center.

I've just reinstalled it from the Software Center, and I can now access all the settings.

Not sure how it is related to the install/remove of wicd though.
