After selecting to a wifi network, the list of SSIDs disappears

I'm on Cinammon Mint 20.

After I select a wifi network to connect to, the list of SSIDs disappears. Please see attached screenshot.

Re: From wear and tear, my phone case is fraying. What can I do to strengthen/shield the case from wear and tear?

So two month? And you do not have sandpaper lining in your pocket i assume.. Then imo its not a question about you repairing the case, its much more a question about how fast you can walk to the store, and demand your money back! Yes, no sandpaper (lining) in the pockets. Unfortunately, to get a re...

Re: How can I always start computer with volume on mute and wireless turned off?

I suppose if you go menu/pref/network change the slide its off until turned on again. Same if you go to sound/ settings. And you could try the function keys. Sorry for not being clear. I wanted my computer to automatically start on mute with wifi off. This means that I don't want to have to manuall...

How can I always start Mint with volume on mute and wireless off, even I powered off computer with volume up & wifi on?

Every time I power on my computer, I'd like to start it with volume on mute and with wireless turned off. How can I do that?

Or, when I power off my computer, how can I get Mint to auto-mute and turn off wifi before it completely shuts down?

I'm on Cinnamon 20.

Re: how can i edit the DISPLAYED name of the wifi network I connect to?

hi diapason,

The name has changed in the Network Manager connections list.

But the name has not changed in the pop-up notification.

how can i edit the wifi name that's displayed in the "You are now connected to wifi network 'foo'" pop-up?

Note: I am asking just to change what's displayed on my Mint computer. I don't seek to change the SSID broadcast name itself. Connection Established You are now connected to the Wi-Fi network "peppermintea". https://i.imgur.com/aTDFmpd.png When I'm connected to a particular wifi network, h...

Re: How to list the filenames of all files in a folder's subfolders, in one terminal command

That part I can't help with I'm afraid. I believe it's hard coded to have the path with a semicolon at the end for each folder. There's still a way to do it, but it's beyond my abilities. Someone else should be able to help you get over that hurdle. I don't mind if there's a semicolon. :) I'm not p...

Re: How to list the filenames of all files in a folder's subfolders, in one terminal command

As a guess, I'll bet you want the folder paths changed to just the folder names. Would that be accurate? I think the answer to your question is yes. :) I *don't" want this sort of printout /home/folder/folder1 file1 file 2 file 3 /home/folder/folder2 filea file AB filebc Rather, I'd prefer som...

Sorry. I was so excited just to see something.
But I had to quickly erase the "[Solved]" from the OP's title.

Re: How to list the filenames of all files in a folder's subfolders, in one terminal command

MrEen. Not quite there. It doesn't include the name of the folder. When I wrote "Folder1" or "Folder2" in my OP, that's supposed to be the actual names of the subfolders. :) I want the actual subfolder names to be part of the output. :) What it did was list all the subfolder name...

list filenames of all files in a folder's subfolders, grouped by subfolder, in one terminal command [solved]

I have a folder containing about 9 subfolders. Each subfolder has about 10 files. How can I easily list, in one terminal command, all (approximately) 90 filenames, grouped by subfolder? The listing can appear in the terminal or can be outputted into a simple text file. All (approximately) 90 files a...

Re: How can I figure out why one USB port on laptop isn't working?

Since you state the port is on the left it is most likely a bad solder preventing it from working which a BIOS update would not fix. The two USB 3 ports on that side are on the same controller. The BIOS update would address some of the battery drain. It would be worth creating the boot media from t...

Re: How can I figure out why one USB port on laptop isn't working?

I have access to a Windows 10 computer. I borrowed a USB drive. I booted up the Linux Mint Thinkpad and entered the BIOS. For reference, here's the present information (before I update BIOS): Under the Main tab: UEFI BIOS version: R0DET95W (1.95) UEFI BIOS Date (2018-06-16) Embedded Controller Versi...

Re: How can I figure out why one USB port on laptop isn't working?

Thank you for your response. Your BIOS is way out of date. There's a newer version that fixes security issues and a battery drain problem among other things. Use the bootable CD download and then you don't need to bother with windows. Windows? Once I got my Thinkpad, I did a clean-install of Linux M...
