Ubuntu wired unmanaged fix

Ubuntu wired unmanaged fix

I have just installed Ubuntu Linux 19.04 on my computer and the icon at the top right of the screen shows
wired unmanaged
I want to be able to actually manage the network card (it’s mine dagnabbit!)

To fix the issue (feature), open a terminal and type in the following:

sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

There is a line that reads


change the line to read


Restart Network Manager:

sudo service network-manager restart

Or for a quick one liner:

sudo sed -i 's/managed=false/managed=true/g' /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf && sudo service network-manager restart

Hope that helps!
