On the downside, I kind of broke Digit. Well no, he's not broken, I just made the Network Manager disappear from the panel and I can't seem to get it back. I've been trying for as long as my patience would let me but I just get frustrated to no end. Right-clicking on the panel and choosing
I can hear three questions: 1: Why do I need it? It's the applet that easily manages my network connections, I can open it, choose a network within range, enter the password and yay! I'm online. When it's on the panel, its icon changes to show whether I have a connection and how well it works.
2: How did I get online? The applet is obviously still installed and it autimatically remembers the network I last used. I am however going to need it if I ever want to connect to a different network again.
3: How did I make it disappear? I always hate the how-did-you-break-it-question, so let's get it over with. I was removing some things from the panel, to make more room for things I actually use. I removed the sound control thingie because I have shortcut keys for that on my keyboard. And the Network Manager disappeared along with it. I kid you not. /headdesk! I would have killed for an undo-command right then and there.
Remco knows just as much about Linux as I do, only he has more patience, and he has command-prompt skills that I lack, but he hasn't been able to restore the damage I did. And frankly, I just want to enjoy my holiday, instead of having to troubleshoot. So I'm just going to ignore the problem for now.
A wild green parrot just landed in one of the trees around the resort swimming pool. The weather is still great and I can still write. Breathe in, breathe out, get on with the holiday.
