I've just done a clean install of 13.04 and have been busy trying to get everything configured. I have a working setup at this point, but one item is annoying me.
My wired connection can't be edited via the Gnome settings panel, nor via nm-connection-editor. Here's what's in /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto p3p1 iface p3p1 inet dhcp
and here is the context of /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManger.conf
[main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile dns=dnsmasq [ifupdown] managed=true
My understanding is that the
managed=true should allow me to control it via NetworkManager. Does that not include editing it?
FWIW, the issue for me is that I need to force dnsmasq use, but not resolvconf. The only way I could figure out to do this is to remove resolvconf. When resolvconf is installed, the dhcp nameservers get inserted into resolv.conf with is undesirable since it interferes with correct operation when I bring up my VPN.
What I've got works, it just seemed inelegant to have to do the hand edits and it was surprising that I couldn't edit the configuration from the system settings control panel.
