Description of problem:
With the in-range WLAN configured to auto-connect to an OpenVPN service (using nm-connection-editor), upon login the whole VPN panel is missing from the system menu, despite the VPN being connected. Workaround is to first log in to text console, wait until VPN auto-connects, then log in from Wayland.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. WLAN in rage, "available to all users" disabled, autoconnect enabled, set to use an OpenVPN connection automatically when connected.
2. Boot, log in to Wayland session.
3. VPN icon and VPN panel in system menu missing.
If between steps 1 and 2 I do:
- log in, run "ip route" to wait for VPN to come up.
and then log in, VPN icon and panel show up. I can then Ctrl-Alt-F3 back to the text terminal and log out of there, then back to Alt-F2 to my Wayland session.
Need to log in to text console before logging into Wayland session.
Used to not need any "extra" log in, as of F27. This regressed with F28 and continues with F29.
Realized part of the steps is misleading. It's "If after booting and before logging in to Wayland" that the workaround applies, obviously.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '29'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 29 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Still happening with F30
