I need to open NetworkManager's edit connections window from terminal (for ssh -X ).
What is the command that opens it?


The correct command is nm-connection-editor.

    I found sudo nmtui much more useful, as suggested by @asac below – Mohsin Bukhari Oct 1 '20 at 19:43

Alternatively, use (sudo) nmtui to get as close to a GUI as you can get in a terminal.

No need to forward X to add, edit or delete connections via this user-friendly interface.
