Now iputils-arping it's removed also network-manager and i don't have an internet connection on my laptop. i tryed to remove arping and install iputils-arping from a downloaded packge but it wont work coz they are in conflict with each other. Also i can't install network-manager .

enn@em616:~$ sudo dpkg -i network-manager_0.9.6.0-0ubuntu7_i386.deb  Selecting previously unselected package network-manager. (Reading database ...      212384 files and directories currently installed.)  Unpacking network-manager (from network-manager_0.9.6.0-0ubuntu7_i386.deb) ...      dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of network-manager:      network-manager depends on iputils-arping; however:      Package iputils-arping is not installed.    dpkg: error processing network-manager (--install):      dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for man-db ...

Solution:1

Network manager is still installed, it's just the dependency that's not there.

Uninstall arping and find something that doesn't create conflicts. Or try and find another source for it. I dunno... I've installed arping and it never made dependency issues for me.

sudo apt-get remove --purge arping  

Reinstall the network manager, and apt-get will fix the dependencies.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager
