NM connection editor has VPN option deactivated by default

Bug #344800 reported by Juanje Ojeda on 2009-03-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager (Guadalinex)
network-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Network Manager in standard Ubuntu Jaunty doesn't has the package 'network-manager-vpnc' as a dependency and isn't either installed by the desktop metapackage or so.

So the connection editor show the option VPN tab, but all button are deactivated and it doesn't tell you why or what can you do for activating it.

I see 2 posible solutions:
 * Added the 'network-manager-vpnc' package as a dependency
 * Don't show the VPN tab unless the package be installed

NM now has network-manager-pptp as a dependency which makes the VPN page worth having, and the Add button is available; marking Fix Released. (there are other bugs for the different issues like having a way to install plugins from the add dialog or so).

Changed in network-manager (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
