nm-applet icon missing [Solved]

Post by ezioze » Tue Oct 01, 2013 19:35

Hi.
After last update (30/09/2013) nm-applet icon is missing in notification area.
Network manager works.

In sabayonlinux.org repository release there is 0.9.8.4, after downgrade with release 0.9.8.2 from sabayon-weekly and reboot icon is back again.

Release 0.9.8.2 is no more present in repository.
I found that i have to start manually (nm-applet &) in a terminal and keep it open to make icon visible.
I think the problem is that NetworkManager is release 0.9.8.2 and applet is 0.9.8.4, may be?

I found a workaround to have nm icon displayed on MATE.
i modified /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop.
I commented line:
#AutostartCondition=GNOME3 if-session gnome-fallback
and after reboot icon is displayed
