I recently noticed that the Network / Wifi icon is missing in Ubuntu 15.10 unity panel. The network is working perfect, the only problem is that I cant see if I'm connected or not, and if I want to change networks I have to do it through the system settings. (unnecessary long procedure)
I've tried all the troubleshooting steps I found on Google, but nothing worked. Then I tried reinstalling Ubuntu which initially solved the problem, but after doing some updates it disappeared again.
Anyone with the same problem? Anyone with a solution?
note: if i post nm-applet in terminal i get this feedback:
**nm-applet-Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon (nm-applet:15724): nm-applet-WARNING **: Could not find ShellVersion property on org.gnome.Shell after 5 tries (nm-applet:15724): nm-applet-WARNING **: Failed to register as an agent: (32) An agent with this ID is already registered for this user. ^Cnm-applet-Message: PID 0 (we are 15724) sent signal 2, shutting down...
