Thanks.  A restart was needed, then hidden networks part of network
settings appeared.


For your interest, either gconftool-2 or bash were unable to handle
the ISO-8859-1 no-break space (0xa0) you inserted into the command:

[olpc at xo-96-ad-9e ~]$ gconftool-2 -s --type boolean /desktop/sugar/extensions/network/conf_hidden_ssid true
No value to set for key: `true'
[olpc at xo-96-ad-9e ~]$ 

The argument parser is consuming the key as part of the type.

After replacing the no-break space, the command gave no error.
