I'm trying to delete a wired connection from network manager in Kubuntu Saucy (Converted and upgraded from Lubuntu Raring). It asks me for confirmation, which I give, but the connection doesn't get deleted. How do I delete this connection? Ubuntu always connects to it automatically instead of preferring the connection I created (which is working)

cd /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections 
sudo rm {wired_connection_name}
