I edited /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf and added keyfile
to the plugins setting:
$ cat /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
Then I opened the NM connection editor (from my user account,
available by right-clicking on the NM applet and selecting "Edit
Connections" or by calling nm-connection from a terminal). In the
connection editor, I selected the connection I wanted, clicked Edit,
and checked the "Available to all users" box at the bottom, and
This should prompt you to allow the action and then create a file in
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/. I do recall having to futz
with this a little, perhaps creating that directory and looking in the
PolicyKit authorizations (System->Preferences->System->Authorizations
Of course, this was right after F10 was released and NM updates since
then may have obviated the need for any of that. I mention it as
possible things to look at if you have problems. Another option might
be to run nm-connection as root and adding your connections directly,
but I have not tried that.
Hopefully that helps. I'm certainly not an expert on the NM stuff, so
if it doesn't, I may not be of much more use. :)
