I'd like to stop this nuisance of the disappearing access to this
important applet, but, how?

Is there a file nm-applet.desktop under the directory /etc/xdg/autostart?

If not, try install the package network-manager-gnome.


Yes, the file is there. Network-manager-gnome is up-to-date. For good
measure, I re-installed, to no avail.

Is the indicator plugin installed/working? Maybe that's the cause.

Another possible cause is with the sessions. Please check with the settings manager.

BTW, replying to the list is sufficient.

What is the indicator plugin? I do see other icons on Panel 1. No Network icon is available to add when I go to Panel > Properties > *Add New Items.

I see nothing in Settings Manager that I can relate to this problem.
