I use to connect to add a connection with nmcli on Ubuntu with

nmcli con add

It appears that those options have disappeared on the Linux Mint 17 nmcli version:

# nmcli con help
Usage: nmcli connection { COMMAND | help }
COMMAND := { list | status | up | down | delete }

My version of nmcli is

# nmcli -v
nmcli tool, version 0.9.8.8

I guess Linux Mint is using wpa_supplicant directly. I use nmcli instead of wpa_supplicant for its reliability and simplicity.

  1. Why does nmcli on linux Mint 17 differ from nmcli on recent Ubuntu versions
  2. Where can I find the nmcli features that I had with Ubuntu on Linux Mint?

Why does nmcli on linux Mint 17 differ from nmcli on recent Ubuntu versions?

Because Linux Mint 17 use the nmcli 0.9.8.8 version and Ubuntu 16.04 and linux mint 18 use the 1.2.2 version.

Where can I find the nmcli features that I had with Ubuntu on Linux Mint?

You should upgrade your distro to linux mint 18 , Or you can install the latest nmcli and network-manager from backports on Linux mint 17
