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.

It's looking like there's an issue with the package version (possibly 1 too many characters in the hash). When running the pkgver function, the version gets updated to 1.28.1dev+7+g3f5df3cdc-1, which is considered to be older than the stated version in the PKGBUID of 1.28.1dev+7+g3f5df3cdc6-2. As a result, each time I build and update, I am still informed that the upstream is newer than the current.

Thanks, frebib – fixed.

The libnm provides needs to be re-added to the libnm-iwd package

There is a bug when using IWD as a backend in combination with iwlwifi, for instance with a Intel's AX200 wireless adapter. If you do not disable the iwd.service afterwards then it crashes : WARNING: CPU: 7 PID: 492 at net/wireless/nl80211.c:7260 nl80211_get_reg_do+0x1cd/0x1f0. This is because 90-networkmanager.conf is triggering to activate the service also. See Kernel.org Bugzilla – Bug 208599
