[Bug 1385709] Re: network-manager service doesn't start at boot time


My difficulties also began upon upgrade. However, I get no warning. I'm
running the Plasma 5 desktop, so I have the new nm widget.

In spite of configuring my home wireless setup, including proper
password, etc. and selecting "connect automatically on start" - it never
does. I have to click the widget and click the connect *every*time*.
Really annoying.

If there is a network problem it doesn't autoconnect once the router has
been reset either, which in 14.04 it did without a hiccup.

  connection. Also the Network Management tray icon tooltip says that
  the network-manager service is not running. However if I then manually
  open the terminal and run 'sudo service network-manager start', then
  it starts ok and the network connects within a few seconds and
  everything works ok until the next reboot. I'm on a desktop PC with a
  wired LAN connection and no wifi adapter. network-manager version is
