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.

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.

@ilikenwf I updated this package to test the new version on my system:

Feel free to push the commit here.

As stated here, I had issues with iwd and I'm forced to come back to wpa_supplicant, so don't need this package anymore. Feel free to adopt it if you want.

I noticed that plasma-nm applet it's not showing wifi when using an external usb wifi adapter, but it's working when I restart networkmanager service. So I managed to resolve enabling iwd.service at boot. I pushed an overriding configuration for safety reasons to get iwd.service start after udev and before networkmanager service.

If you're having same issues, it's recommended to enable iwd service at boot.

@glitsj16: you're right, same double vala entry is in upstream PKGBUILD. Fixed, thanks.

This is working great, link speed almost doubled. One small note, the current PKGBUILD contains 'vala' twice on line 19 in the makedepends array.
