Network Manager 0.7 for Ubuntu Hardy

Asked by John Rose on 2009-01-17

I'm using up to date Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.1. The author of Launchpad bug 288409 stated that "I installed network-manager from PPA using Hardy. I have 2 network interfaces.". I'd like to have 2 interfaces up but NM applet 0.6.6 in Hardy does not allow it. Can anybody point me to the NM 0.7 PPA version?

The PPA is located at:

To install the PPA version, open the terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and type in:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Enter you password when it asks you for it, and then in the text editor that loads up, go to the very bottom of the file and put at the end:

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main

Then save and close the file. Then before you exit the terminal, type in:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then it should upgrade Network Manager and when you restart your PC, the new nm-applet should load up.

Thanks rugby471, that solved my question.

Network Manager now doesn't load automatically, even though it's still shown in System Preferences Sessions (as command nm-applet --sm-disable). Why is that?

After 2 reboots, Network Manager now loads automatically for both Administrative & Desktop users!
