After upgrading to Fedora 22 (KDE5), I have trouble running (or actually editing connections) the Network Manager, namely kde5-nm-connection-editor. I can click on my WiFi-Symbol, I can click the editicon, which opens the connection editor. But I literaly can't edit something with the editor. The okay-Button is simply greyed out.

wheel vboxusers network

sudo cat /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.rules
    polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
       if (action.id.indexOf("org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.") == 0 &&  subject.isInGroup("network")) {
       return polkit.Result.YES;

ps aux | grep polk
polkitd    960  0.0  0.1 533252 15424 ?        Ssl  19:07   0:00 /usr/lib/polkit-1/polkitd --no-debug
thomas    1761  0.0  0.4 664572 36320 ?        Sl   19:07   0:00 /usr/libexec/kf5/polkit-kde-authentication-agent-1

Polkit seems to be running, and I am in the goup network and the rule should allow me to edit entries. Any help appreciated.


I've just bumped into the same issue with Fedora 22 running KDE5. OK button is still gray in kde5-nm-connection-editor.

"Solution" is to add new connection via nm-connection-editor application.
