Hi,
I'm trying to connect to connect to my vpn via networkmanager-openconnect. This works in fedora live.
It works in gentoo with the cli openconnect as well

Code:

tun0: flags=4305<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,NOARP,MULTICAST>  mtu 1406
        inet <snip>  netmask 255.255.255.255  destination <snip>
        inet6 <snip>  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        unspec 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  txqueuelen 500  (UNSPEC)
        RX packets 92  bytes 14292 (13.9 KiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 536  bytes 48747 (47.6 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0


But via the gnome networkmanager stuff I get:
Code:

Jan 20 22:38:08 eg-server systemd-resolved[340]: Got mDNS UDP packet on unknown scope. Ignoring.
Jan 20 22:38:07 eg-server NetworkManager[17620]: <info>  [1516484287.7132] vpn-connection[0x...,"Name",0]: VPN service disappeared

Jan 20 22:38:07 eg-server NetworkManager[17620]: <info>  [1516484287.6840] vpn-connection[0x...,"Name",0]: Started the VPN service, PID 17671

Jan 20 22:38:07 eg-server systemd-resolved[340]: Got mDNS UDP packet on unknown scope. Ignoring.


EDIT: it even works with
Code:
nmcli --ask connection up 'Name'


So, what am I missing?

when using gnome-nm, secret handling is passed along to gnome-shell/consolekit.

u can try this as a workaround, maybe someone more familiar can add.
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/networkmanager/nm-openconnect-auth-dialog /usr/lib/gnome-shell/

that doesn't help. I miss the connected-icons in the top bar and the connections-related entries in the top-right menu as well, so I figure something is amiss.
I explicitly added networkmanager as global use flag in make.conf and ran a world update, but something seems still to be missing

It works on another box with gnome 3.24., and it has those entries. What might be missing?

Argh. When I issue
Code:
USE="networkmanager" emerge -v gnome-shell


gnome-shell actually compiles the icons in the system status area and in the user menu. It works then!!

But, without explicitly forcing USE in the command line,
I get
Code:
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] gnome-base/gnome-shell-3.24.3::gentoo  USE="bluetooth browser-extension ibus -networkmanager* -nsplugin (-openrc-force)" PYTHON_TARGETS="python3_5 -python3_4" 0 KiB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 KiB
although the use flag is given in make.conf

Code:
/etc/portage # cat make.conf | grep networkmanager
     npt lbrv svm_lock nrip_save vmmcall networkmanager"


as well as in package.use:

Code:
/etc/portage # cat package.use/gnome-shell | grep networkmanager
gnome-base/gnome-shell networkmanager


What the {h|f} goes on there? Why isn't the networkmanager use-flag accepted?

Don't you mean grep expr file, not cat file | grep expr? The latter is a Useless Use Of Cat.

To the point at hand, you have package.use as a directory. Do you have any other files in that directory that set conflicting flags on gnome-base/gnome-shell?

Indeed, a
Code:
/etc/portage/package.use grep networkmanager *
revealed a buried -networkmanager somewhere else...
