SO I decided to bite the dust and switch to Bodhi linux and all was fine in the live CD but when I finally was on an installed desktop I had no NM-applet on the ibar and there is no option to enable it under contents any way of fixing this sorta need it asap. please note using terminal I can manually launch the applet just to connect to the internet. I am on your standard install 64 bit





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

A few things to check. 

NM-applet by default is a startup application. SettingsPanel > Apps > StartUp > tab System> Network should have a colored dot. If not you should select it and click add > apply.

The bottom shelf content by default includes a systray. If not you must add it as the nm-applet icon needs it to be functional.

 

Please let me know your results.

 

Can't remember I've ever seen this reported before.

 

Enjoy,

Charles.
