Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

Located in internet/nm.xml line 22

At the moment ( Karmic beta) the icon looks like two plugs plugged into eachother, but it has changed two time in the last few day's so it might change again.

At this moment the ubuntu-docs read:
Network Manager is the little icon in the system notification area in the top right of your screen. It looks like two over-lapping computer screens or four blue or grey stepped bars (when connected wirelessly).

Worked with Redmar over IRC to confirm bug. I will update this section of the document and submit a branch after the Karmic Release once an icon is decided on.

Augustina, thanks for working on this bug. Do you have a branch or patch available for this? When you do, we can fix this in the dev branch and do a SRU for Karmic. If you do not want to or cannot provide the fix at this time, can you please unassign yourself so somebody else can work on it?
Cheers.

... did you forget to submit the patch? The bug is still in Lucid.

Augustina, since you have not gotten back to us, I have gone ahead and committed a change for this bug so we can be sure it gets in for Lucid. I will post the patch, I welcome any suggestions you or others have for improving the description, since NM tends to have a lot of choices for icons.

Hi Connor,

Thanks for writing a patch to fix this.

Sadly however the icon has changed for Lucid, and might change again before its final. Ill post it here when I know its the final.

+ Network Manager LAN icon description doesnt match for Lucid

Redmar, my description included the icons that I saw in Lucid. Is what you see in Lucid different than, "two up-and-down arrows or outward arcing signal bars (when connected wirelessly)" ? nm-applet is always changing...
