Help us understand how you use NetworkManager

Recently, while considering possible improvements to our command line client, we realized that we’re not really confident about how useful is it for the users. Do you use it? Is it intuitive enough? Do sysadmins like it? Is the documentation all right? Do we communicate features sufficiently?

It seems like the best idea is to ask you. We’ve set up a short survey here: and we’ll be thankful for responses.

There’s a plenty of free-form response fields where you can add comments. We’d like to hear from you, and will read all the responses. You can leave a contact if you’re interested in hearing back.

Please share the survey link with your friends and enemies.

Thank you!
Lubo, on behalf of the NetworkManager team.

  1. The only thing wrong with Network Manager is that the GUI does not provide for a regular user to edit IP settings. I wish there were a way for the Network Manager Applet GUI to allow me to enter the root password once and grant access to it. I can run nm-connection-editor from a terminal as root to do this but I would like to not have to enter a terminal and log in as root to be able to edit a network setting.

  2. I like, use a lot and is essential to my Connectify Hostpot for Windows
