Cannot change password for VPN connection in NetworkManager

Post by zebbeman »

Every time I have to change my password, I have to create a new connection. I cannot save my new password when I try. No messages, looks fine, but when I reopen it, the password is not changed. Any ideas?

Are you doing this in an Admin account or User account. Not sure if it would make a difference but good to know.
What exactly are you doing - document your key presses, also with what DE you are using.

I am an administrator and the only user. The VPN is L2TP and I am using Network-manager-l2tp-gnome GUI. What is DE, Cinnamon?

Network applet in panel -> Network connections -> Highlight my connection -> settings (gear) -> Password -> Save
