The good-old workaround still applies to launch vpn:
~/$ killall nm-applet; killall gnome-shell; sh -c 'nm-applet &'; gnome-shell & 8946
But since yesterday's pacman -Syu (or even one earlier from pacman.log):
[2012-11-02 21:51] upgraded openvpn (2.2.2-1 -> 2.2.2-2) [2012-11-02 21:51] upgraded networkmanager-openvpn (0.9.4.0-1 -> 0.9.6.0-1)
I get the following into console, and no connection dialogues (Connection failed notification instead)
JS LOG: Error 'VPN plugin at /usr/lib/gnome-shell/nm-openconnect-auth-dialog is not executable' while processing VPN keyfile '/etc/NetworkManager/VPN/nm-openconnect-service.name' JS LOG: Invalid VPN service type (cannot find authentication binary)
After research and performing:
cd /usr/lib/gnome-shell/ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/networkmanager/nm-openvpn-* .
Now I get this in the console:
JS LOG: Invalid VPN service type (cannot find authentication binary)
Hope you'll help me out.. Cheers!
Could anyone please check this behaviour before I submit bug?
I do not know which package broke the functionality, but I am 90% sure on 2nd of November it still worked, and an update on 11th November broke things
