    Hats off to you Aron Kili. I was unable to login to Linux mint 19 cinnamon, it was all black screen, nothing was there. I connected to wifi after going to Console (ctrl+alt+f1),then reinstalled cinnamon after connecting to wifi. Now i am able to use my laptop. Long live Aron.

    Just curious: was this an “RPM” based system that these commands were run on? or a “DEB” system? (In case I need to install certain components to get the nmcli to run properly!? Great article!

      @Eddie

      Our test environment was Ubuntu a DEB system, however, nmcli should come pre-installed on all if not most mainstream Linux distros. Thanks for appreciating this piece of work.
