Description Vladimir Benes 2011-07-08 10:25:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When I forbid wireless sharing by setting no in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.network-manager-settings.system.policy 

NM looks like it should work but nothing happens.. silent failure.. this behavior should be better .. some dialog should be shown 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. forbid wireless sharing as stated here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=709662#c1 (use no instead of admin_auth)
2. create wireless network

Actual results:
creating of wireless correctly fails but no message to user provided

Expected results:
should show something like.. Creation of wireless network denied.. contact system administrator for help.. :)
