Standard users cannot connect to new network without admin password
Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic GNOME 3.28.2 network-manager-gnome/bionic,now 1.8.10-2ubuntu1 amd64 network-manager/bionic,now 1.10.6-2ubuntu1 amd64
Issue: Non-admin (sudo) users cannot connect to a new wireless network because the setting defaults to making the network available for all users, which requires admin rights.
This is a longstanding issue:
- In standard user account, select a new wireless network to connect.
Actual: Dialog for admin password, because applet tries to create network available to all users.
Check if the current user has admin rights to add a network for all users. If they don't, create the new network connection for the current user only. This would solve the problem of standard users not being able to add a network without requiring changing the security permissions model of the network manager.
