If the local connection is opened via file/"open connection", then the "new"
button" is not displayed. If you double click on local, "new" is displayed.
Hmm, I'm a bit confused. The new guest button will only be active if you are
currently selecting an active connection. file->new connection should open this
new connection but it won't select/highlight it, so the new button will not
immediately appear active. This is expected behavior, as we don't want to steal
the current selection on the manager screen.
Is this what you meant, or did I misunderstand? If so, please explain the exact
process you are using: how many connections exist prior to file->new, what type
of connection are you opening, and please post ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log
as well. Thanks!
Ping, never set this to needinfo. Any info in response to comment #1?
