Bug Description

In Lubuntu 14.04.4-beta for PPC, the network manager does not show the leased DHCP address.

LXDE -> System Tools -> Network -> General

The General tab should show the current IP address in use regardless of whether it was gained by DHCP.

Using the steps to reproduce I can reproduce this bug but I can find this information out through right clicking on network manager applet and pressing connection information gives me my leased ip adderess from dhcp. Another workaround is to run ifconfig in a terminal.
