Yeah, that's the row I mean. If it opens and shows VMs, sounds like that is
what you want. It might not be asking for root passwd twice because it is
caching the auth credentials: depends on what policykit version is installed.

virt-manager only asks for the root passwd to connect to the libvirt qemu
driver: sounds like it is doing that, so not sure if there is something else
you want.

Add connection is what I mean, sorry.

Sorry, I don't know what package libvirtd is in on debian based systems.
