Re: nm-applet edit unplugged device connections/profiles

Is there some way to get nm-applet to show unplugged (ethernet
dongles) devices profiles in it's menu at all times?  All of my
recent laptops have been thunderbolt usb-c only and my wired ethernet
adapters have all been one of the variants, but until I plug them in,
I cannot even see my profiles from the GUI anywhere.  Is there some
way to change this behavior?

Running Fedora (29).


nm-applet is a tool (GUI in the system tray bar) to show devices, which
profiles are currently active, and to activate/deactivate profiles on

Consequently, you don't see profiles that have no suitable device at
the moment.

Use nm-connection-editor for that, which only focuses on
creating/modifing/deleting profiles.

In nm-applet, you can also right click and select "Edit
Connections...", which spawns nm-connection-editor -- though, I think
right-click does not work if nm-applet uses libappindicator. Regardless
of that, you can always start nm-connection-editor manually, the effect
is the same.

Does that work?
