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?
Perfect - exactly what I needed!

Thanks Thomas - I have been looking through the config files and nmcli to flip some switch without luck :)

I sure wish that the Gnome folks would not have removed the bonding/vlan/connection stuff from Settings, and I always seem to forget about nm-connection-editor :-/
