Hello everybody,

I have Network monitor as one of desktop widget, and I am sure that it was working before, at least during, Live run before installation. But currently it gives me a White Square only, and no information within (just White Square).

When I try to configure it, I have found the drop-down list under network interface to be empty.

That is very strange, sine I am using WIFI network.

Please, I want your suggestions or ideas?
