Yep i can see it in dmesg; which component should i report the bug against?

I can see NetworkManager running with top, but i have no icon in the toolbar;
wifi devices are present and atheros module loaded correctly.

The driver is here:

A kernel module is actually needed only if
the touchscreen uses serial connection; installation of their
driver for usb only modifies xorg.conf and launches a
calibration utility. Will try again in the weekend, as i can have made
something wrong, and will report back to you.

Just forgot to report yesterday: if i open cheese and take a
picture from the webcam (default setting are ok), the
image goes to the first "rolling" screen. If i click on the picture
a program is opened (media viewer?) but after half a second
it closes with no error. Then the background image is
replaced with a grey background.
