+1 for the effort, but it tells me gedit-crypto-plugin breaks gedit (<< 3.12) gedit (version 3.10.4-0ubuntu4) is present and installed. What version of Ubuntu is it designed for? I am on 2014.04.

comment Prefer home WiFi network over mobile broadband WiFi
The launchpad page is definitely in the right direction, but slightly different: It says "nobody here suggested changing the active connection". I would like to switch, even if that means losing the connection for a few seconds.
