Package: network-manager
Version: 1.1.91-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I want to configure a wireless connection provided by
my institution --- meaning that I have no degrees of freedom
in what I have to do to complete the procedure.

That said, the institution gives me two files, a CA certificate


and a private key file with an associated private key


I had placed those files in a generic subfolder (~/Documents/.certificates)
and then I tried to configure the connection using Network Manager.

I access the Network Connections window, I Add a new (wireless)
connection, in the Editing New Connection window I access the Wi-Fi
Security tab, select WPA & WPA2 Enterprise from the Security menu, I use
the CA Certificate menu to access the ~/Documents/.certificates folder,
I'm shown the ca.pem file, I select it and proceed, using the Private key
menu, I access ~/Documents/.certificates, at the bottom I see the list of 
correct file extensions (comprising the .p12 extension!) but the file
wifiCert.p12 is not shown (no file at all is shown as selectable).

At his point I cannot complete the configuration.

I have to mention that this is a new laptop (my previuos laptop
has been stolen) and that on my previous laptop I configured the same
wireless network w/o any problem. Previous laptop, btw, was running sid as well.

thank you in advance,

This is supposed to be fixed by a new upstream release, thus closing the
bug report.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
