WiFi icon removed from system tray, how to re-add?

Sun Mar 06, 2016 5:53 pm

A while back I felt like being rebellious and switched from Raspbian's native networking to wicd . Now I've come back to dhcpcd. That's worked fine, my /etc/network/interfaces & /etc/wpa... blah files are all shipshape & Bristol-fashion, networking has been configured from the command-line to exactly match the default config files and networking works fine.

However, I removed the WiFi icon from the system tray at the top right of the desktop. I'd like it back.

How do I get it back please?

What is the name and the path of that GUI tool, please?

I thought it should be dhcpcd-ui , but that seems to be "command not found".

Google-fu is failing because gazillions of results refer to pre-Jessie networking.

Right click in the system tray.
Select "Add/Remove Panel Items"
Click on the "ADD" button (top right)
Select "WiFI Networks (dhcpcdui)" from the list and "Add" it.

Return to “Raspbian”
