No informations for ipv6
Version: 0.9 (using KDE 4.6.4)
When connected to a ipv6 ready network
where ip -6 addr return real addresses (not a fe80: local link) there's no informations about the ip(s) obtained
One of the difficulties will reside in :
You have to show the permanent full ipv6 address, but you will have to present also the active non expired temporary address if ipv6 privacy is on
Steps to Reproduce:
Connect to an ipv6 network. Get at least one full ipv6 address ( or more if ipv6 privacy is on )
Open the panel of Auto eth0 for example
only mac & ipv4 informations are shown
ipv4 & ipv6 informations should be accessible
nm-09 is able to show those information
here the output of nm-tool on a system configured in a full ipv6 stack

Would be nice to have those information in PNM too.
Yes, I know. However, due to the current design of PNM (and the current state of the nm09 branch), doing this would result in somewhat ugly code and cost a lot of effort (which would not make that much sense, since the current state is only provisionary). There are efforts to simplify our backend (libnm-qt), as soon as that is completed this bug will be attended to. And by the way, NM does not yet support IPv6 privacy, see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=633233
Thanks Ilia for the status, but in the bng you mention, it seems there's everything now for the privacy, except tests to see if it works like admins and users need it to work.
This extension can be a nice subject to a bof at DesktopSummit in Berlin :D
Those patches have not been merged into NM's source yet, so unless you compile NM yourself with these patches, there is no IPv6 privacy support.
Reassign Network Management bugs to new maintainer. Have a lot of fun, Lamarque!
Still the case with kde 4.8.3
Still the case in KDE 4.9.2.
In fact, the Network Manager plasma applet outright lies to the user -- it says "IP address: No IP address", when typing "ip addr" in konsole shows that there's a perfectly valid IPv6 IP address.

We are moving to a new and simpler code, bit of patience and we'll get this fixed.
Alex. let me guess, Qt Quick/QML?
Plus more things, we'll draft a plan in the incoming solid sprint
This is fixed in (yet to release) Plasma NM 0.9.3.
