Description Giorgio 2013-02-07 01:36:30 MSK
In Rosa Desktop Fresh network profile is still neglected. 
There is no easy way to create, change and delete network profile. Nor to know which profile is active and to change active profile. Despite an old bug report http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=193 regarding 2012.0 version.

This feature is very useful in any portable device, notebook, laptop, netbook, and it's surprising that Rosa developer don't take into account.

I think Rosa should:

1) add this information to errata explaining how to solve using command line

2) add an icon that allow quick opening GUI (that you can reach with draknetprofile command). This could be done in short time and added to Rosa Desktop Fresh 2012.1 as update.

3) in next version allow an easy way to know which netprofile is active. Probably the best place could be Networkmanager where you can see information regarding network connections. 

4) in next version give an easy way to change active profile

Network Manager support network profile? 

Please can you explain how can I change, create o delete network profile using network manager ?

I don't see anything related to netprofile in network manager window. Can you explain where I can see ?

I updated to KDE 4.9.5.

And they will substituted by what? 
Network profile is an useful feature that many other distribution don't have. I think it would be better keep them, may be update, not throw away!!!!

Network profile is much more than a connection. With a single click you can change proxy, firewall, repositories, in other words you can adapt your system to different situation. 
It seem that in Rosa this is not yet clear.

In my opinion this bug is not resolved at all.
