@Andrew, @all: I've updated cmst to latest stable release 2022.05.01. I apologize for the delay to update from previous version: I'm suffering a serious ill and under heavy medical treatment. Feel free to comment about issues or inconveniences using this new version.

Just uploaded version 2022.05.01 to Github. SHA256 sum: 61c4ad7acad302814a677b0dd94092e336d47f55def2829c825e9128c9378dc4

New VPN create and remove buttons on the VPN tab. These are hopefully a lot easier to use to create connections than the old VPN editor was, although the editor does still exist.

Also extensive changes to the icon manager and using system icons in lieu of the built in ones works much better. Most people I suspect won't (and have never) used this but there are a few that like everything on their system to match, and it now mostly works.

Handful of issues fixed and generally getting things cleaned up and updated in the validating code for a push to try and make configuring VPN connections somewhat easier.

January 28 2022: Updated to latest stable version 2022.01.05. @Andrew: I apologize for my delayed PKGBUILD update. I was ill (COVID-19) and now very busy at my work...

Thanks for taking this on. I created the original AUR package for this but it was removed when it got promoted to the Community repo. I keep the current development version on my machine and after I saw your issue request on GitHub and checked here discovered that it no longer was in Community.

I'll do a formal release before the end of the week. After that is trying to address the issue with High DPI monitors. I have no way of seeing if what I do fixes that issue or not so probably should keep it in development for a while. When I post the release I'll make a note on your issue at GitHub so you know it was done.

Notice for CMST users: cmst 2020.11.01-1 has been flagged as out-of-date at 2021-12-09. For now, I can't update cmst to the new 2021.12.02 release, because it has some bugs that aborts the compilation from sources. I have reported this issues to Andrew Bibb (cmst developer and maintainer in GitHub), he is solving this and other issues in code, and has uploaded version 2021.12.18-2 of the program. But this new code is only a git commit, not a new stable release. I prefer to defer the new package version for AUR until a new stable release will be available.

My apologies for my delayed reply.

cmst 2020.11.01-1 is working OK in my system, without changes since november 17, 2020. There is not new releases since cmst 2020.11.01-1 PKGBUILD has been uploaded to AUR by @arojas...

When I choose to connect to a new WiFi access point, cmst shows its Agent Input window, allowing to enter the password. When I choose to connect to a previously knowed WiFi, cmst directly connects to this access point, unless its passphrase has been changed.

Please, send an email to Applications & Desktop forum, with more complete information, i.e.: your cmst configuration stated in its Preference tabs, your complete connman configuration in /etc/connman/main.conf, and all info that can be more descriptive and useful.

sorry if it's the wrong place to post this, cmst gives me a error saying passphrase is required when trying to connect to wifi, where previously a menu would pop up to enter password, even if it's a saved network it throws the same error

arojas has orphaned this package, perhaps because he is very busy maintaining kde* and dozens other packages...
I'm using cmst under LXQt since a long time ago, so I've adopted it; I hope I can properly maintain cmst.
All suggestions and help are welcome!
