Full Version: Ubuntu 15.04 - Problem new users not connecting to network in Kodi 15

Hi,
I just configured an Asus Chromebox i3 with latest Ubuntu and Kodi through the EZ script:
- Ubuntu 15.04
- 15.0 Git:2f34a0c Media Center Kodi

I created a new kodi user to avoid using "user" as the default user as I configured ubuntu to login automatically the new user into Kodi.
Unfortunately, with this new user, Kodi doesn't connect to the network, though in the System info it shows the computer is connected to the internet (and valid IP, DNS, etc).
I tried this with 2 different users
I confirm with original user "user" it works.

I tried to see if in /etc/group something was missing but with no success.

I'm new to Ubuntu 15.04 and Kodi (always used Xmbc and Ubuntu Trusty or mostly debian).

Does anybody knows where the misconfiguration could be so I could use any user i want to login into Kodi?

Thanks
I am having the same problem now.
And the good thing here is: It has absolutely nothing to do with Kodi.
I am getting this error:
