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 uninstalling knetworkmanger and running the commands things appeared in
after that your vpn connection will be listed in the right side of
plasmoid window under Connections
if the connection appears you will have to edit:
What does autoload paramater do???
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.
I uninstalled it and it is a very ugly work around. But it did work. Hopefully
the plasmoid will not develop a bug :(
Thanks for the tip.
