How to disable Network Manager on Linux


Network Manager is a feature-rich network configuration service which is used by default in most Linux desktop environments nowadays. It provides automatic configuration of (wired/wireless) network interfaces, as well as VPN, mobile broadband and even Bluetooth connections. Network Manager is smart enough to automatically switch to the best (or the most recent) connection network, and can inform other applications of up-to-date network events via D-Bus API.
