Linux Mint: Network Manager Headache

The network manager unconnects randomly. It's annoying during streams or online games. I have tried to install wicd, but cannot make the network manager inactive.

Removing the darn thing results in a dark screen. It's almost a Windows blue screen of death experience. And I've had this experience twice.

So now I'm left with a blank screen, gde hangs.

What are my options? Trying:

  • Install KDE
  • apt-get install kde-full
If that does not work the only option is to reinstall the entire system. For the third time.

Perhaps the HP EliteBook favors another Linux flavour?

The trick worked. After installing KDE wicd runs like a charm .. in KDE that is.
