Ok, let's see if we can get the Network icon back.
........................

Yes, that fixed it; I now have a WiFi icon showing in the panel.
Marvelous work, many thanks to you Sir!
I am just beginning to find that this operating system has some nice little accessible facilities like the "Lite Tweaks", and I have only just started with it.
Jim.

This should restore it back to default settings.

Menu -> Settings
scroll down the list and click on 'Lite Tweaks'
on the window that opens
scroll down and select the 'Taskbar Restore' job
click 'begin'

Maybe just a reboot did something.  We can sort out the network icon but first can you ensure your system is in range of some wifi networks and then run two commands and post back.

Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C networkTo ensure the wifi adapter is on the system

Code: [Select]
sudo nmcli dev wifi listTo list any networks it can see

Jim,

In this post the USB device is now showing and has a driver when compared with your earlier post number 15 where it wasn't listed.........
Did you change anything between posts ?............

No. At least, not that I am aware of.

Can you now see wireless networks detected ?
Steve.............

No. And also, I cannot see the network connections icon in the bottom panel. It was there before showing Ethernet connection.

Jim,

Another thing to check when you get chance.

In the BIOS/UEFI settings does your machine have the option for secure boot ?
This can cause issues, so let us know how it is set (if you have it).

No sign of the adaptor there.

Were there any error messages during the install and did you reboot after running the install script ?

edit - spelling

I have done all that carefully, but I have not got it to work yet.
I copied the notes off terminal to a file where I can find it and read later.
In my "Network" found in the panel, I can get to a complex list of settings to select to (presumably?) get the device going.
Is this correct?
If so, what entries to I fill in?
A few short minutes ago, I found a WiFi set up page. Sorry to say, but I cannot find it again. I did take a screenshot, copied to clipboard, but it did not arrive here when I clicked paste.
Do I have to set up the connection somewhere?
Jim.
