I'm running ubuntu 18.04 with a custom i3 desktop that launches nm-connection-editor when an icon on my bar is clicked. What's annoying me is that nm-connection-editor doesn't appear to be showing me the full list of wireless connections available, only the ones that I've already connected to in the past. Is there a way to get this thing to display the full list of networks, and if not, is there a GUI program that can be launched from the command line that can do this?
DESCRIPTION nm-connection-editor is a GTK‐based application to add, remove, and modify network connections stored by NetworkManager. NetworkManager must be running for any network connections to be added, removed, or modified
this means you need to click this network at-least once in order to show this when you open
the GUI way to launch from command line is
Observe in below Image, there is no gear icon for the Network
iBall-Baton this means I haven ever even tried to connect to this network..
Even I dont know the password if I just click it and then open
nm-connection-editor, this network will be shown.
