Network Admin Tool Missing Connection Tab
Binary package hint: gnome-network-admin
Installed 10.04 LTS on a wiped-clean Toshiba Satellite Pro.
The network admin tool was not installed neither on the Admin menu, nor could I start it from the command line - the OS offered to install it with apt-get):
The program 'network-admin' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install gnome-network-admin
The Lucid documentation seems to think it should be present (and gnome-system-tools 2.30.0 was installed).
I installed gnome-network-admin from Synaptic Package Manager (also version 2.30.0). The "Network" menu item now appears, but it lacks the Connections tab, which is the most important one. I do not know how to configure wifi connections without it.
I repeated the 10.04 install, but the effects were exactly the same.
Note that bug #566811 filed against package gnome-nettool (and marked incomplete- ready for deletion) sounds identical.
