what happened to nm (aka network manager) applet?

XFCE 4.12.1 on Fedora 28 is missing the nm applet. What's up with that?

nm applet isn't part of Xfce so really it is better to ask Fedora. However I installed Fedora 28 today and the applet was there for me. Do you have a working network card?

Hmmm .. I could have sworn that I got it from xfce. I'll look elsewhere. Thanks for the info.

Does Fedora offer an Xfce Extras package perhaps? That's how it is on Manjaro, so if you do a minimal install, you won't get it.

In my f28 xfce installation i have nm applet, maybe uninstalling something you have uninstalled it as a dependency (ex.ModemManager-glib), but nothing easier than installing it from the fedora repository (if it is not installed).

Thanks for the reply. As it happens, I discovered that it was installed, but that it dies with no messages when started. Getting the source ...
