Im unable to access network indicator because "Device not ready" issue, this problem happened after reverting back to NetworkManager from wicd network manager thanks to this method.

The odd things is, I could connect to wireless connection, unlike most people that cannot connect through WiFi because of this issue.

  • No worries. While reverting the process to get back the Network Manager, did you follow this step by step? help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager – M. Becerra Nov 2 '16 at 17:00

Have you tried removing unused package that comes with wicd ? If no, consider removing it by running autoremove command:

sudo apt-get autoremove
  • Thanks ! I didn't think autoremove will solve the problem. – user439193 Dec 20 '16 at 3:56

    sudo service wicd stop and then sudo service network-manager restart also works – kenn Jan 12 '17 at 17:58

You can restart your device as it may solve your problem. Instead, you can also use try restarting your network services:

sudo systemctl restart network-manager

    Except this long standing virus of Ubuntu and Linux in general has evolved immunity against that antidote. The restart no longer works – Rexford Aug 17 '18 at 17:18
