Description Martin van Es 2018-12-06 08:17:28 UTC
Plasma-nm applet seems to force a refresh on available wireless networks when opening the applet, which is nice but also causes me to miss-click the VPN that's sorted on top and gets replaced by one of the wireless networks just as I want to click on it.

1. Have VPN connection(s) configured in NM
2. Have multiple WL networks hanging around in the neighbourhood
3. Open Plasma-nm
4. Hover over the first available VPN connection
5. See the position being replaced as the applet refreshes the list of available networks.
5. Hit or Miss click the VPN.

Not allways, but very often VPN miss-click

I don't know what the best approach would be, but maybe a static VPN region, or top-sorting of VPN's may help here?
