Title: Acer Aspire One - Network Center won't open
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 30, 2010, 12:41:29 am
If you have an Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite, and the Network Center won't open and/or the Network Manager icon is missing, and/or it won't accept your wireless password (key) after an system update try this...

Open a terminal...
you can do this by hitting Alt+F2 and then typing terminal and clicking the Run button.

When the terminal opens, enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /system/networking
and hit enter, then your password if/when asked... to clear all the root network connections.

Then back in the terminal, enter:
Code: [Select]
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /system/networking
and hit enter... to clear all the user network connections.

reboot... network center should now work.

Be Aware - This will clear ALL network settings, so be prepared to have to re-enter your wireless settings etc.

If you are having problems getting your Web Browser (Firefox 2) to open on your Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite... see here: (
