I just updated to ubuntu 14.04 LTE and network manager is giving me a question mark in my system tray even though I can connect to the internet. This really irritates me.
I tried hiding network manager in system and and making it reappear to see if it would reset but it hasn't. I also tried switching themes and rebooting system to see if it would reset icons, but this doesn't work either...
I'm out of ideas so I was thinking of reinstalling network manager... My question: If I reinstall or remove network manager, can my computer still connect to the internet or not?
I dont want to uninstall it and then not have internet to redownload it again. I'd appreciate some info on the proper procedure for this.
Can I just do
sudo aptitude reinstall network-manager?
I also deleted the cache folder (
/var/tmp/kdecache-$USER/) and rebooted my system. This also did not work.
Moreover, if I click on network manager icon in system tray, there's an icon in the middle with bars which is grayed out. Does anyone know what that means? I can't click on it for some reason...
Do you have to have
network-manager package to have internet working? I wanted to try and uninstall/reinstall it but wasn't sure if I would be able to if I did as I thought it might be required for internet to work.
