Where is the nm-connection-editor?

nm-connection-editor was part of the network-manager-applet package. GNOME 3 Shell has the network icon built in, so the applet package was removed from dependencies. You can still install it manually, though – the old applet should then be disabled via gnome-session-properties.

Also, it might be good to file a Fedora bug report, as the new GNOME "Network" settings panel won't work properly without nm-connection-editor.

When I went to install network-manager-applet it saids: No package network-manager-applet available. Thanks. – ant2009 Aug 20 '11 at 18:28
Try "NetworkManager-gnome". – grawity Aug 20 '11 at 18:33
Hello, Yes, I was able to install NetworkManager-gome and use the nm-connection-editor. However, one question. I am using Fedora 15 gnome 3.0.1. What is the difference between 'System Settings | Network' (I normally click this to edit my connections) and NetworkManager-gnome? Thanks – ant2009 Aug 21 '11 at 5:30
They both access the same NetworkManager settings. In fact, when you click on "Options..." in the System Settings page, you will launch the same nm-connection-editor from NetworkManager-gnome. – grawity Aug 21 '11 at 10:25
