The network manager
nm-applet has disappeared from the unity panel of my Ubuntu 14.04. When I try to run it from the commas line, I receive an error:
$ nm-applet nm-applet-Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon (nm-applet:6409): nm-applet-WARNING **: Could not find ShellVersion property on org.gnome.Shell after 5 tries
I do not know if it is directly related but ever since this, running System Settings-> Network does not display 'Mobile Broadband' even though the datacard is connected to the system. The datacard does not work any more.
EDIT: The following command as suggested by user 'mkayaalp' also gives an error:
$ nm-applet --shell-debug nm-applet-Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon (nm-applet:6848): nm-applet-WARNING **: Could not find ShellVersion property on org.gnome.Shell after 5 tries nm-applet-Message: PID 0 (we are 6848) sent signal 2, shutting down... (nm-applet:6848): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 107 was not found when attempting to remove it
The problem of the icon for
nm-applet not appearing on the unity panel is not unique to it. This problem also persists for 'Psensors' even though in options it is set to show on the unity panel.
P.S.: Searching on google and on askubuntu.com mainly brings up results regarding Lubuntu 14.04.
