Ubuntu – Ubuntu 12.10 Network Connection menu GUI doesnt work properly


Many a times I have seen When I click on network connection(besides volume icon), I am unable to select any options. When I hover over VPN connections, the list shows nothing. I have added many VPNs. Network menu becomes non responsive to any clicks. This is annoying because I am not able to connect to any of the VPN connections. "Enable Wireless", "Edit Connections" or any other option doesnt work at all. Restarting ubuntu fixes this issue. But problem starts randomly again and restarting my laptop is the only way to fix it. Is this a known bug? Any ways to fix this prob?

Network management

Try searching "kubuntu network management disabled", this issue is more common in kubuntu, i had it also because i am using a pppoe connection which required the service field from dsl to be empty(and kubuntu 12.04 wouldnt allow it ),installed kubuntu without internet connection and after installation process i did not have any network/internet connections and all connections i made weren't working.
