Bug Description

Upstream fix:

This bug is about re-enabling the desktop launcher visibility of nm-connection-editor in 18.04 LTS and beyond. A typical use case of nm-connection-editor is sharing internet connection with other computers over Ethernet. I cannot do that in the network panel of gnome-control-center on Bionic.

Gnome and KDE do not allow starting nm-connection-editor from the GUI, nor provide a graphical way to manage more specialized connections, like Bridge, Team and Bond ones.

Upstream also changed the displayed name (to Advanced Network Configuration) to hint users that the tool should be used for specialized networking configurations.

  * debian/rules:
    - build with --with-libnm-gtk, the default is now to disable it
      upstream but we still have unity-control-center depending on it.

network-manager-applet (1.8.20-1) unstable; urgency=medium

    connections by default.

  * Update symbols file for libnma0
  * Use debhelper-compat (= 12) Build-Depends and drop debian/compat
  * Bump Standards-Version to 4.3.0
