Description-en: network management framework (daemon and userspace tools)
 NetworkManager is a system network service that manages your network
devices
 and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when

 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.

 This package contains a systray applet for GNOME's notification area but it
 also works for other desktop environments which provide a systray like KDE
 or Xfce.
 It displays the available networks and allows users to easily switch
between
 them. For encrypted networks it will prompt the user for the key/passphrase
 and it can optionally store them in the gnome-keyring.
