Is it possible to have NetworkManager run a script before it connects to a wifi network and pass the SSID of the network to the script (or just execute a script based on SSID)? I'm switching back from WICD and am sorely missing this ability. I googled around but all I could find is /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/* which seems to execute after the connection is established and doesn't pass the SSID.

How about /etc/network/if-up.d? –  Nattgew Apr 30 at 16:36
