As the title says, networkmanager-applet does not save the passwords for WPA2-Enterprise networks.
The log gives me the following output:
... Apr 10 08:40:11 penguinpad NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'password' value '<omitted>' ...
Of course, I have entered the password many times, without selecting 'Ask for password every time'.
I can connect, but everytime I want to do so, I have to enter the password in the settings page of networkmanager-applet,
even after waking up from suspend. Does anyone have a hint?
The thing that is bugging me, is that WPA&WPA2 network passwords are saved! What am I doing wrong?
I have the same problem running the latest nm-applet in Openbox. It saved all passwords before the last update, not just WPA2 personal.
I encountered precisely this problem when I needed to connect to a WPA2-Enterprise network. I could not get network manager to connect me automatically, and needed to enter the user password each time.
I tried running nm-applet as root, and found that when trying to save the password, the dialog would prompt me if I wanted to ignore the CA certificate. When I checked the button to ignore, the dialog subsequently disappeared. It seemed to have a conflict with saving the password. This led me to manually explore the configuration for that SSD in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections. There I found a line with referring to ca-certificates (= true). I changed this to false, and since then I have been able to autologin into the access point. This is a kludge, but at least it seems to work for me. A more solid fix is needed, but you may want to try this.
I can confirm this problem with nm-applet in xfce. I have to re-enter the password before I can connect.
