I am imaging myself as a programmer from movies when you can do everything from the command line. So now I can switch off the computer by "shutdown" , open books by "xdg-open" and close programs by "ps -x | grep 'key-word' and then kill the process" But I cann't switch on network. I am forced use GUI to do it and it makes me upset.
What's command can:
switch on\off network adapter?
give me the list of available networks?
to get connection with required network?
Sorry if I chose wrong branch of the forum for the questions!
And of course my laptop running on mint.

In Mint you can turn the network adapter off/on with this command
Code:
Systemctl stop NetworkManager
Code:
Systemctl start NetWorkManager
to see available networks you can use
