On my laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 I have VMware Workstation 12 Pro (legitimately) installed, so there are virtual network interfaces that are unmanaged by
network-manager but they still show up in the menu in panel.
I have tried removing them via
[keyfile] in the
NetworkManager.conf file, to no avail.
[main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile,ofono dns=dnsmasq [ifupdown] managed=false [keyfile] unmanaged-devices=mac:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX;mac:YY:YY:YY:YY:YY:YY
So is there some alternative way to hide these interfaces from the network manager?
I did quite a bit of Googling to no avail so please excuse my ignorance if this is an already answered question.
