This is a portable KDE desktop used by non-technical office staff at any of three locations.
An administrator logged in and connected to the local wireless hub, then configured the network connection to permit all users (supplying the root password). Thereafter the network connection is maintained whether any or no user is logged in (enabling remote maintenance).
The problem is that after a reboot the first user (if not the administrator is prompted for the wireless password before the network connection is enabled. I do not know what to do to enable a network connection before any user has logged on.
Do I perhaps need to edit the “.nmconnection” file or add a polkit rule? I would appreciate any pointers.
(NetworkManager starts at boot)
