This is a modified package configured to get NetworkManager working exclusively with iwd. Main difference with upstream version is that iwd is required and wpa_supplicant is not needed (so you can uninstall it); iwd seems more reliable on certain wireless cards, so someone could prefer it in place of wpa_supplicant.

It's recommended to enable systemd iwd.service at boot: systemctl enable iwd.service

Tested with Plasma NM system tray applet (plasma-nm), it's working.

Note that wpa_supplicant is still needed to build the package, but you can uninstall it after the building stage.

Can this package be updated to 1.22.10 please?

The package follows upstream version, not cgit.

Updated. Didn't have time to test it, let me know if something is going wrong.

I won't, don't use it anymore. At least I could help as a contributor, but not as a maintainer.

ilikenwf commented on 2019-10-31 16:29

Disowned, feel free to take it over.

He can make me as a contributor, so I can push the update, or you can download the PKGBUILD and install it on your own.

Anyway, I don't think I will update it in the future since I'm still having issues with iwd and I'm using wpa_supplicant.
