Yesterday I did a fresh install of the latest of Lubuntu 14.04 on my HP netbook. Initially, I have used Lubuntu 13.04.

My initial impression is that the OS is more polished, but I ran into a problem that the Wireless Network Applet is no longer present on the taskbar. This gives me 2 problems:

  1. The system no longer connect to the wireless at Auburn University (AU_Wifi).
  2. I can’t change wireless network to connect to

Apparently, there is a bug in the new system and is documented here. What I did was just manually run the network applet as follows:

nm-applet
