I have just updated to Lubuntu 14 from version 13. I now cannot see the wifi icon on the task bar. Is it meant to be there? If so, how can I make it appear?

  • Open terminal Ctrl+Alt+t, run nm-applet . See if it shows icon or raises any error message. – user.dz Apr 20 '14 at 22:06

I had the same question when I did a fresh install of Lubuntu 14.04. Go to Menu->Preferences->Default applications for LXSessions. Navigate to Core Applications and then to Network GUI. Type in nm-applet and then hit reload.

  • Worked on my Lubuntu 14.04 ttyl, kudos for clear instructions – Hamman Samuel Jul 31 '14 at 15:06
  • Thanks. The likely responsible (and supposedly fixed) bug is here. – esmail May 28 '15 at 0:49

Add the nm-applet into the autostart menu of lxsession as manual autostart application has worked at my computer. Only check in the preferences menu has not worked.
