Kubuntu: Connect to hidden WLAN

Somehow the Network-Manager in Kubuntu can not connect to hidden wireless lan. But i found a simple workaround in the kubuntuforums.net:

Go in the Kubuntu Network-Manager and add a new connection with all the details of the hidden WLAN.

Now open a terminal and run this command:

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan essid NameOfHiddenWLAN

This will scan on the wlan0 device for a network with the name "NameOfHiddenWLAN".
A few seconds later, your Network-Manager might already have connected to the hidden WLAN, if everything was correct.
