[Bug 1518579] Re: Wired connection is on by default


The following steps will fix the problem:-
1.Go to terminal install gksu by typing:
sudo apt-get install gksu
gksu is used to enter password while running a program as root.	
2. Once you have gksu installed, use the command below:
       gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
and edit the file by typing nmcli nm enable false and reboot.
This will turn off wired connection by default.
