Bug Description

I have not been able to Edit the Connections on my EeePC, to set up a VPN connection.

I open the VPN tab on the EEdit Connections dialog, all of the buttons are disabled.

I am the administrator on this machine.

I have tried while the machine is running off of battery and direct power. I have tried with different power states while running off of Wireless and Wired connection.

To use vpn you need to install some extra packages depending on your needs

  - network-manager-openvpn
  - network-manager-pptp
  - network-manager-vpnc

I think there should be a way for automatic installation or better documentation on this, though.
