Screenshot showing the issues.

I am under Fedora 20. Installation from CD and using all recent updates. Whenever I log into gnome-shell the top icon for NetworkManager is missing. Sometimes it shows up, sometimes it won't. The icon is there. As soon as I restart gnome-shell, the icon shows up again. But it would be nice to have the icon appear the first time I log into gnome-shell. Attached a screenshot explaining the issue.

It is most probably an gnome-shell issue.

Nonetheless, when an icon is missing could you check whether NM is running? Run e.g.:
$ ps aux | grep NetworkManager
$ nmcli -f all general

I forgot to mention that WLAN connected properly otherwise I wouldn't be connected to "Xayde" my SSID (as shown in the screenhot). I belive it's a timing issue e.g. what was there first. gnome-shell or networkmanager applet.

Comment 4 Ali Akcaagac 2015-03-08 15:19:45 UTC
Due of duplication this can be closed as it is fixed already.

Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2015-04-29 22:58:56 UTC
Yeah, still a problem in F-21 and F-22.

On this particular laptop, I have wired network connected and icon sometimes shows, sometimes does not. On a remote VM (also wired), it mostly shows, but even there it sometimes disappears.

Occasionally, the icon also changes to ?, although the network is connected and working properly.

Clearly, I would not be able to post this screenshot without the network being up.

Don't worry about this bit - that was the consequence of having installed workstation package, which phones home every so often. I've since removed this package.

The other problem still occasionally occurs - no network icon at all.

Comment 8 Ali Akcaagac 2015-11-12 15:08:18 UTC
I am wondering if this is still happening ? A bunch of updates might have solved the issue ?

Comment 9 Bojan Smojver 2015-11-12 20:16:28 UTC
I still get this from time to time, even on F-23.
