Ubuntu: Re-enter cisco vpn passwords



Question:

Since I upgraded from Lubuntu 13.10 to 14.04 my VPN passwords have to be re-entered every time I open the VPN connection.

The passwords used to be maintained by the key ring but no longer. When I create a new configuration using Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc) it looks like it is storing the passwords in the keyring. A popup appears and asks for my password.

Any body any ideas?


Solution:1

Okay this is what went wrong.

After I upgraded from Lubuntu 13.10 to 14.4 the network manager was missing in my panel. I solved this by adding nm-applet --sm-enable & in my .profile. At first this seemed to be a good solution, the network manager reappeared again. But the problem mentioned above occurred.

What I should have done to get my network manager back again is select Preferences -> Default applications for LXSessions. Click the tab Autostart and type after + Add "nm-applet". Then click + Add. After logging on again the network manager is where one would expect it to be and Keyring will work as well to fill in the stored passwords.
