Hi all,

This is what I did (network manager not showing):

"I read up on the published bug and did this:

a. Shifted all movable icons slightly to the left.

b. Opened up a terminal and typed:

sudo joe /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf [enter]

[enter password and depress enter]

c. Changed "managed=false" to "managed=true

d. Closed out all open packages and rebooted.

Works fine."
