Gnome3 asks for WiFi password twice
Last modified: 2013-07-31 19:35:36 EDT
Description of problem:
After logging in, Gnome3 asks for the wireless password twice, at the same time.
One screen is the Gnome3-like black popup and the other (below it, unclickable) is the usual gray popup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F17 , Gnome 3.4
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Enter wifi password in two different screens.
Two popups asking for password.
Should use keyring and not ask for any password at all.
what version of gnome-shell and what version of NetworkManager-gnome do you have installed?
I've started to notice this behaviour with Gnome Shell 3.6 in Fedora 18.
For example, when I wake my laptop from sleep, it asks me to enter the password with a password field pre-filled with the correct password (I just have to press connect)
Forgot to answer.
Gnome Shell 220.127.116.11
(I couldn't find a package/program called NetworkManager-gnome)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
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 prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 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 to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
