Re: [trinity-users] Network-manager

OK, no nm-applet in wheezy.

currently I have:
-LXDE running a network applet, which smoothly finds the mobile network card and connects to the Network/Internet
-Trinity having no nm-applet and NOT finding the mobile network card at all

Sadly this is one thing is the ONLY reason, why I can't use trinity at all....
What I don't understand: Isn't the same networkmanager used by all these applets?

Or can I use another applet (not Trinity to manage the Networkinterfaces?)

Thanks
