Package: network-manager-kde
Version: 1:0.9~svn1141976-1
Severity: normal

=== Update ===
I also believe that this bug is the same as KDE bug 209673:

I.e., the problem is in how knetworkmanager interacts with wpa_supplicant. 
knetworkmanager sends ca-certificates as is to wpa_supplicant (nm-applet 
converts them). So, if using a using a PEM encoded certificate, which cannot
be interpreted by wpa_supplicant, knetworkmanager will not be able to establish
the connection.

=== Work-around ===
I used the following commands to manually convert my PEM certificate to a DER
certificate (where I used AddTrust_External_Root as CERT):

$ mkdir ~/ca-cert
$ openssl x509 -inform PEM -in /etc/ssl/certs/CERT.pem -outform DER -out

Then I use the newly created cert-file, ~/ca-cert/CERT.der, as the CA 
in knetworkmanager. (You might have to reboot as well.)

I am, at least, able to connect to the PEAP/MSCHAPv2 network "eduroam" at my 
university without any problems.
