Installing indicator network for Ubuntu 10.10

Just like indicator-datetime, there's a indicator-network available in the Ubuntu 10.10 repositories for those interested in giving it a go. Unlike indicator-datetime though, this one's in a much less mature state. Wired networking works but I haven't been successful in getting wireless up and running.

If you'd still like to give it a go, here's how:

~$ sudo apt-get install indicator-network

Unlike indicator-datetime where a simple re-login to your desktop will suffice, indicator-network requires a reboot before you can use it.

indicator-network running

Once it's up and running you can remove the default network management applet (nm-applet) from the system notification area.
