Ubuntu: Why are there two network indicators with ubuntu-desktop in Kubuntu



Question:

I installed Kubuntu 13.10 32 bit on my Yoga 2 Pro and after some days all window decorations were gone and I couldn't repair that, so I decided to install

aptitude install ubuntu-desktop  

and use Ubuntu ever since.

the only strange thing is, that there are two Network controls somehow on my system now in the top right corner:

the kright one, you can mark and unmark all wifi networks and hafe "Wi-Fi settings" (unlocalized in english) which does nothing, when you click on it.

The left one is locallized and looks like this:
enter image description here

"Bearbeiten" means settings and works fine

How can I find out what those are?

Those are the relevant packages installed, i think:

dpkg -l|gawk '{ print $1 " " $2}'|egrep "network|-nm"  ii gir1.2-networkmanager-1.0  ii glib-networking:i386  ii glib-networking-common  ii glib-networking-services  ii indicator-network  ii kdenetwork-filesharing  ii libnetworkmanagerqt0  ii libproxy1-plugin-networkmanager:i386  ii libqt4-network:i386  ii libqt5network5:i386  ii libqtscript4-network:i386  ii network-manager  ii network-manager-gnome  ii network-manager-pptp  ii network-manager-pptp-gnome  ii plasma-nm

EDIT

If I start the system manager I see there are the processes

nm-applet  

and

indicator-network-service  

It seems they are not working together well?

How can I remove the indicator-network-service?


Solution:1

Disable nm-applet from loading at startup of Unity by the use of this command:

 sudo sed --in-place 's/NotShowIn=KDE/NotShowIn=Unity/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop
