nm-applet only with tint2 or? [Solved]

Hello I've noticed that I can't start nm-applet from the terminal. I've disabled tint2. How can I use the functionality from nm-applet if i remove tint2 from my machine? Or is there a better way to list and connect to wireless networks?

What are you using instead of Tint2? Nothing? No systray? Anyway, nm-applet can be started from terminal. Do you get any error-message while you try to start it?

I'm using alot of keybindings, I don't need a tray on the laptop. I still use it on my main computer though. Back to the problem: I call $ nm-applet from terminator and this is what shows up:
**Message: Applet now removed from the notification area

Nothing shows up. I've tried to kill the process aswell prior to calling the command.

Perhaps the process doesn`t get killed. You will find the destop-file that launches nm-applet in "/etc/xdg/autostart" It`s named "Network". Try removing it temporarily. Move it out of the autostart-folder, and store it somewhere else as a backup...

Then reboot and try to start nm-applet from terminal...

Sorry if I'm being thick, it's nearly 1am and I'm shattered.

Do you not want nm-connection-editor rather than nm-applet?

[edit]

It's now nearly 8am and I've slept a bit lol.

I think I was right. nm-applet will have (**should have**) autostarted, it's just not 'clickable' because you have no system tray.  nm-connection-editor will allow you to add and edit connections. If you need a list of available AP's, use nm-tool first.

HTH smile

@ew I tried to move out this file but unfortunately it didn't work.

@Forthy Oh I see, so I can use nm-tool together with nm-connection-editor to achieve the same effect

If you only use one or a few wlans you can configure the wlan manually in /etc/network/interfaces.
