But the daemon runs as root, so setting NM_VPN_PLUGIN_DIR requires you

as well copy the .name file to /usr/lib/NetworkManager/VPN. Why is that
not sufficient?

As you say, we do set NM_VPN_PLUGIN_DIR for our networkmanager daemon.
I was trying to have networkmanager vpn plugins simply work for Guix
System, which does not follow FHS. As such, there is no `/usr/lib` to
speak of, or any of the other default locations networkmanager looks in.

Put another way, do you know of a way to pass vpn plugin locations to NM
at runtime?

+    file = g_file_new_for_path (conf_dir_user);
+    priv->monitor_etc = g_file_monitor_directory (file,
+    g_object_unref (file);
+    if (priv->monitor_etc) {

btw, you cannot overwrite the existing monitor_etc and monitor_id_etc
fields. It would require new ones...
Thanks for explaining this.
