I have the same trouble than this Red Hat user ( ) but in Fedora 25 Workstation.

I briefly explain it: there's no clickable symbol for the nm-connection-editor application in the GUI anywhere in network manager, control panel....Even it isn't shown using search box!! (the latter is due to the explicit line "NotShowIn=KDE;GNOME;" , present in /usr/share/applications/nm-connection-editor.desktop)

Why is this happenning? Maybe is nm-connection-editor marked as obsolete and I didn't noticed?

There's no other GUI replacement!! Thanks

No, I don't. I only see a list of wired and wireless connections (I also can switch them off/on or enter into network manager but nothing more) and a user list and poweroff, lock and control panel big buttons. Thanks

in my case it's cinnamon. There it is named "Network Connections" and is the last point in the menu, when you left click on the network symbol.

Thanks, but I'm talking about stock Gnome shipped with Fedora 25 Workstation
