ltlian2073332dI think the reason you'll see nmcli mentioned a lot is because different network managers competing for control is one of the most common culprits behind network issues in linux. If you do find a gui manager, make sure to check what it's actually managing.
(I just use nmcli as well)
The thing is... Networkmanager Gnome Applet is used under XFCE.
It could be the indicator API ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/... ).
Depending on your knowledge / skills with linux, there are two things you could try:
- using mutter (Gnomes WM) instead of XFWM
- removing the indicator plugins (which will be more problematic I guess)
The "fault" lies in GTK I guess. Using mutter is a possible solution, since the window behaviour might be more compatible (this is a very sad topic TM).
apt install mutter --no-install-recommends (root)
xfconf-query --channel xfce4-session --property /sessions/Failsafe/Client0_Command --type string --set "mutter" --force-array
Hope I got it right...
