Comment 1 Jerry Amundson 2011-06-24 02:52:29 UTC
Just guessing with the upstream bug as there is not much info.

Comment 2 Jerry Amundson 2011-07-07 04:44:42 UTC
Seems to be a slight change between 
now I can manually add the connection, then activate it with "nmcli con up id
This may be a complete red herring however, in that it may be random bits
backed by inadequate testing. That's more likely, considering there has been no
other feedback here.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2011-07-07 08:02:12 UTC
This difference is because kde-plasma-networkmanagement-0.9-0.53.20110616git.nm09.fc15.i686 stores connections in NetworkManager's systemwide storage, kde-plasma-networkmanagement-0.9-0.47.20110323.fc15.1.i686 stored them in its own config files.

got bogged down so missed the 
test going through, but i did just run across the
test which i tried and can report that by that time 
it certainly does fix things nicely :')

if i try to name a hidden network in the plasma applet it dutifully pops up the network definition interface so i can enter the connection info.

used the restrict to interface option and used with/without the 'system' checkbox (yay option to saves typing walet password at reboot) and works great.
