NetworkManager is a system network service that manages your network devices and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available. It manages ethernet, WiFi, mobile broadband (WWAN), and PPPoE devices, and provides VPN integration with a variety of different VPN services.

This package provides the userspace daemons and a command line interface to interact with NetworkManager.

Optional dependencies:
* ppp: Required for establishing dial-up connections (e.g. via GSM).
* avahi-autoipd: Used for IPv4LL, a protocol for automatic Link-Local IP
address configuration.

Installed WICD along with network-manager. It shows connected but really no connection. I found that command "sudo service network-manager restart" works for me. If I could, I would get rid of network-manager, but still see the value in openvpn option in it. I do know not how to have openvpn with wicd.

Funktioniert prinzipiell und ist auch erweiterbar. Oft hilft die GUI aber nicht, sondern akzeptiert die notwendigen Einstellungen nicht. Auch verhält er sich nicht immer reproduzierbar und führt manchmal eigenwillige Änderungen an den Adaptern durch :-/

This piece of garbage will not save any settings and will want to autoconnect to everything (which is another setting I can't turn off for long).

It's continually getting better with each release. I remember when it shipped without a "disconnect vpn" option. Which meant you had to disconnect your connection completely. It has supports quite a few VPNs - pptp, openvpn.

Powerful backend for managing networks on linux, does great with laptops, see wicd as a alternative if this doesn't meet your needs.
