Description of problem: This problem occurs if you log in to KDE desktop by root user, start Konsole terminal emulator, and use nmtui.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): NetworkManager-tui-1.8.0-11.el7_4.x86_64
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Log in to KDE desktop by root user
2) start Konsole terminal emulator
3) Run nmtui as follows :
i) Press Enter on "Edit a connection"
ii) Press Enter on "<Edit...>"
iii) Click "Allow once" 2 or 3 times on KDE Wallet dialog
iv) It will take about 1 minutes to transit to "Edit connection" screen.
Actual results: screen transition is slow
Expected results: screen transition shouldn't take significant time
Additional Info :
1) It does NOT occur if logging in to KDE desktop by normal user and become
root user by "su -" and run nmtui. (In this case, KDE Wallet dialog is not displayed.)
2) It does NOT occur if using GNOME desktop instead of KDE.
3) Disabling KDE Wallet does not work.
(KDE Wallet can be disabled by System Settings -> Account Details -> KDE Wallet
-> Uncheck "Enable the KDE Wallet subsystem" -> Click "Apply")
When running KDE, plasma-nm registers itself as a NM secret agent.
When the connection is opened for edit by nmtui, NetworkManager requests the connection's secret to the registered secret agents. It seems that on RHEL plasma-nm doesn't respond at GetSecret() requests from NM and makes them time out, causing the delay in nmtui.
For this reason I'm reassigning this bug to plasma-nm for investigation.
we have no way to verify this but the reporter said, it's far better now as ipv4 and proxy are not asking for secrets anymore.
