[Bug 1424119] Re: Edit Connections...now insensitive by default in network manager's menu


The changelog from to shows this new patch, which could be very well the culprit:
 * debian/patches/make_menu_items_insensitive_based_on_permissions.patch:
    - Provide a method to desensitize or hide menu items which are useless given
      the current policykit policy level of the user. 

Maybe someone could try to remove it and see if that solves this bug?

  Might be after upgrade to network-manager-gnome, the item Edit Connections... at the bottom of the network manager's menu is now insensitive i.e. grayed out, therefore user cannot configure his/her connections as indicated in http://docs.xubuntu.org/1204/internet-networks.html#network-connections

  workaround : launch /usr/bin/nm-connection-editor to display the
  network connections window and have access to the settings.
