    20.04 NetworkManager How to autoconnect to specific hidden Wi-Fi network?

    In Xubuntu 18.04, NetworkManager would automatically connect to hidden-SSID Wi-Fi networks by default. I didn't like that being default behavior, but sometimes for a specific hidden Wi-Fi network it can be helpful.

    In Xubuntu 20.04, NetworkManager does not automatically connect to hidden Wi-Fi network by default But even when "Connect automatically with priority" is checked, it still doesn't automatically connect? I must manually go to NetworkManager > "Connect to Hidden Wi-Fi Network...", then select the Wi-Fi network from the drop-down and click Connect.

    How to enable automatic connection to a specific hidden-SSID Wi-Fi network?

    bump.

    I likely could force it with a script that calls nmcli connection up. But that's not a good solution.

    I did find this which sounds like a similar issue. I had tried the suggested solution. But for me that only resulted in one automatic connection once, and has not helped at all since.

    I had also tried using a USB Wi-Fi adapter. Still no dice.

    Is this a related issue? Except for me it doesn't work on wake from suspend either.
