Modify LM12 Cinnamon Network Applet - Edit Connections

Postby blueknight529 on Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:05 pm

Modification adds Left Click access to Network Connections (nm-connection-editor) to current Cinnamon Network Applet.
sudo cp /usr/share/cinnamon/applets/network@cinnamon.org/applet.js applet.js.backup
sudo gedit /usr/share/cinnamon/applets/network@cinnamon.org/applet.js

Search for "Network Settings".
Insert the following string on the next line below the line containing "Network Settings":
this.menu.addSettingsAction(_("Network Connections"), 'nm-connection-editor.desktop');

Save, Log out , log back into Cinnamon session.
Now when you click on the Network Applet, you should see a menu choice of "Network Connections"
This will execute the nm-connection-editor command, and you can better edit network connections.

This is great! How can we get this added to the official package?

This is a function from Gnome / Mate. It does not exist in the Mint 13 Cinnamon version.
To use this in Mint 13, Cinnamon, you will have to install mate-desktop.
