    Every time choose "Edit Connection", it's always the same one that is open, so i cannot edit connections, i have to delete and make a new one.
    Unistall/Install PAC did not resolved the problem.

     
  • Hi!

    That sounds pretty weird... :O
    Could you please explain step-by-step how to reproduce that problem?
    Neither I nor any other user has ever told me about that behavior...

      It just happen i do not know how.
      If i open PAC as root and delete all connection, create 2 new connections, and edit either one, there is no problem.
      But if with my user i do the same, when i edit either one, i'm allways editing the same one.

      2 more things that may help, if i unistall/install PAC my connections are not erased and when i "edit connection" the "connection UUID" is allways " PAC ROOT__"

    Alright, if you don't mind losing your connections, try to delete your user's (please, do not start PAC as root...) config files for PAC:

    rm -rf ~/.config/pac

    Now start PAC and use it.

    BTW: if you really need to run PAC as root, it must be only because of privileged port forwarding, and if that is true (which I hope!), you you should be fine with PAC release 4.5.3.5, which support using "sudo" to execute the connections with root privileges.

    Please, let me know if this solved your problem :)
