I just upgraded (as a fresh install) to Fedora 13. In so doing I kept the old /home partition.
My NetwokrManager Applet is missing from the top bar.
But if I login instead as a different user, then it is there.
When I did the install, I had to create a (new) user as part of the process. The old passwd file had two users, one called admin, and the other myself. I logged in initially as the new user, and created the admin user keeping the same home directory, user ID and group ID. I then logged out, logged in again as admin, and removed the new user. I then added myself as a user keeping the same home directory, and user and group IDs..
For some reason admin has the applet but I don't.
I also don't see how to add it except as a custom laucher using nm-applet, and that didn't seem to work.
What is going on?
