            Bug ID: 359513
           Summary: Network app constantly requires manual input of
                    wireless network passwords
           Product: neon
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Kubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: unstable packaging
          Assignee: neon at kde.org
          Reporter: jgomezdans at gmail.com

Since I installed the Neon repository on my Kubuntu 15.10 system, the Network
app will ask for the password for any configured wireless networks on the
system. The wireless networks get recognised, and NM tries to connect to them,
but I do get a pop up dialogue window asking me to provide the password. When I
do, connection quickly ensues without further problems. After I suspend my
laptop (for example), I need to re-enter the wireless password.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a KDE session
2. Make sure your wifi card is on
3. Be in range of an already configured wireless network.

Actual Results:  
You get a dialogue asking you to enter the wireless network password, although
it should have been remembered.

Expected Results:  
The dialogue shouldn't show up, and the system should connect automatically to
a known network to which the password has been saved.

Used to work fine with the Kubuntu 15.10 PPA packages, only the neon packages
broke this.
