Make DNS follow configuration from Network Manager in 19.04

I’ve installed 19.04 and removed dsnmasq, disabled systemd-resolve using

sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service
sudo systemctl stop systemd-resolved

and want to use Network Manager to set manually my DNS servers. Now I want to configure a different DNS server, so I went to the network icon on the bar and clicked Wired -> Wired Settings -> Configure -> IPV4, select Automatic (DHCP) and disable DNS as automatic, putting my desired DNS servers. Even after rebooting, my /etc/resolv.conf file now only gets 127.0.0.53, not matter what I do on the Nettwork Manager configuration. Is there a way for the /etc/resolv.conf file to be configured by Network manager?

I’ve found a solution.

First, disable systemd-resolve:

sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service
sudo systemctl stop systemd-resolved

Remove the symlink for resolv.conf and create a file:

rm -rf /etc/resolv.conf
touch /etc/resolv.conf
chmod a+rw /etc/resolv.conf

Now change the configuration file for Network Manager to restore the expected result: vi /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf:

[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile
# add this line
dns=default

and leave the rest of the file as is. Restart Network Manager:

sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart

and configure your preferred DNS servers. Done!
