Networking Manager Applet Not Reliable Mint 18.3 Cinnamon

Post by jfbourdeau » Sun Jan 07, 2018 11:14 am

I am using Mint 18.3 last version last kernel.

If I Left click the networking applet and click networking again then if want to turn on/off WiFi or vpn, everything always work well

But if I left click the networking applet and from there, without going into networking, My changes are not reliable... If I turn on VPN, I can't turn it off from there, I have to fully go into the networking tool.

Same thing for WiFi, what I see through the applet, is not reliable or always the truth

in Mint MATE I don't have that kind of behavior... Turning on or off the VPN or WiFI or change VPN or WiFi connection, always show what is happening and works
JF

Example : one says I am connected to the WiFi network the other not... Connecting or disconnecting from VPN in not reliable using the Applet
