I have ubuntu 18.04 and as far as I understood, it uses "netplan". I find out on the web a few ideas to switch wifi on/off when cable is off/on, but most of them uses older fashion.

I liked this idea I found (using /etc/network/interfaces), very simple and clear in my opinion (rather than putting a script somewhere you may forgot later).

 iface eth0 inet static
         post-up ifconfig wlan0 down
         post-down ifconfig wlan0 up

But /etc/network/interfaces seems not used anymore by netplan.

Is there something similar that could be configured in netplan ?

here are more informations:

roger@mini:~$ cat /etc/netplan/*.yaml
cat: '/etc/netplan/*.yaml': Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
roger@mini:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
roger@mini:~$ sudo lshw -C network

The tool for triggering additional actions on a network change if using networkd is networkd-dispatcher.
