Package: network-manager-vpnc
Version: 0.6.4svn2806-1
Severity: serious

Hi,

For a while now, if I want to start a VPN connection with NM, I get a
pop saying:

"VPN-Verbindung »LRZ« konnte nicht gestartet werd" 

("VPN Connectoin "LRZ" could not be started")

"Beim Starten des Authentifizierungsdialog fÃŒr die VPN-Verbindung vom
Typ »org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.vpnc« ist ein Problem aufgetreten.
Bitte setzen Sie sich mit Ihrem Systemadministrator in Verbindung."

("A problem occured while starting the authentication dialog for the VPN
connection of type "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.vpnc".  Please
contact your system administrator")

Is this because the versions for NM and NM-vpnc are out of sync?


Michael

Forgot to say that I can start/stop vpnc from the command-line just
fine.

Ahem.  This was because you split up the package, and I did not have
network-manager-vpnc-gnome.  Are there plans to make
network-manager-vpnc depend on network-manager-vpnc-gnome or otherwise
make sure users don't get trapped by this?  The error message is quite
unobvious.

Hi Michael, Hi Soren;

As the subject says, 0.6.4svn2806-1 works for me OK (once I manage to
type the stupid group password correctly) under kde without having
network-manager-vpnc-gnome installed.

Hope this helps something,

David

Subject: Reason for the split
Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2008 07:42:30 +0200
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi Michael,

The reason, why the network-manager-vpnc (and network-manager-openvpn) 
plugins were split into a GUI and non-GUI part is simple:
knetworkmanager (KDE), provides it's own GUI, so doesn't need the GNOME 
dialogs.
If network-manager-vpnc would depend on network-manager-vpnc-gnome, this 
effort would have been useless, as you couldn't use knm+VPN without 
GNOME deps as before and there would be a dependency loop, as
network-manager-vpnc-gnome depends on network-manager-vpnc.

network-manager-gnome has been updated to recommend 
network-manager-vpnc-gnome (instead of network-manager-vpnc) , and as 
recommends should be installed by default now, you should be all set.

Is this enough to consider this bug fixed?

Michael
