comment Auto-connect to hidden wireless without elevating privelege
I don't think, that a hint about the security risks is an answer to the question above! There are some cases in which the user has no privileges to change the network itself. In my case the wifi of my university has a hidden SSID and I have to bother with it. So a real answer how one can connect to a hidden wifi would be really helpful. My android tablet connects without problems, the windows pcs of the other students are connecting right after the user logged in, but for every single linux pc we have, we have to connect to that network manually, every time we sign in.

comment Automatically disable a ppa
I would prefer to run this "cleanup" by hand, so I can see when ppas went obselet.

comment Automatically disable a ppa
Yes, as already mentioned, I am aware of the manual ways, but with the number of ppas I have this comes unhandy, so I am searching for an automatic way. Thank you anyway.
