  • I think you need to install gnome-system-tools

    apt-get install gnome-system-tools

    or install using synaptic

  • I cannot do anything on Ubuntu that involves internet access.

    If you removed the GNOME front end you could get this package from the Ubuntu website [url]http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/net/network-manager-gnome[/url]. I would try this first,
    If that doesn't work Its not the Gnome Front end, so try this [url]http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/net/network-manager.[/url]
    These are in Debian packages and Debian source packages for use with Ubuntu. I hope this hopes.

  • You need to have a Ubuntu CD-ROM. In Synaptic's options, choose the CD as the source of the file. Then after you have done that you can reinstall network manager through Synaptic.

    See the section Configure Synaptic [url]http://www.watchingthenet.com/ubuntu-guide-for-windows-users-managing-packages-with-synaptic-and-apt-part-1.html[/url]

    Also to backup your system in the future, see

  • I think there is no need to reinstall it . just use command :sudo pppoeconf to access to internet.

  • I have faced the same situation with my notebook, even worse it was a wireless connection which didn't work after uninstalling the network-manager on ubuntu 9.10. the solution was simply by doing the interface setup manually by editing two configuration files, the first was /etc/network/interfaces for setting the ip address, netmask, gateway, etc..., the second was /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_spplicant.conf for setting WPA key. Then I reinstalled the network-manager form the online repository.

    I mus try this, I have been using pppoeconf and Mint 8 to see if this intentional networkManager applet; which is broken!, because Ubuntu and Mr' Google are building a 55 chevy. I wonder if a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 has this fix?

    This should work, and in many cases if it hasn't been too long, running sudo aptitude install network-manager would install it right from the cache for you.
