well, if you have your VPN configured via "Manage Connections" in the
in a terminal run the two commands:
qdbus org.kde.kded /kded unloadModule networkmanagement
qdbus org.kde.kded /kded loadModule networkmanagement
after that your vpn connection will be listed in the right side of the
plasmoid window under Connections
if the connection appears you will have to edit:
you will need deactivate knetworkmanager,
maybe nasty things will happen if you run knetworkmanager with the
plasmoid at the same time
but I don't remember how do it, I did a yum remove knetworkmanager but
maybe that isn't a solution for all people.
