Just installed 0.75.2 and then, as recommended by roy_marples, changed properties of /etc/dhcpcd.conf:

$ ls -al /etc/dhcpcd.conf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root wheel 1189 Jan 9 14:51 /etc/dhcpcd.conf

The user is a member of wheel. Running 'dhcpcd-gtk' (from Menu > Run Program): the tray icon appears with a red mark. Right-clicking on it, the Preferences option is greyed (no error message) and hovering over the icon it says "dhcpcd not running".

The item "Network Configurator" is listed in the Notication Area (XFCE) but disappears from the tray on shytdown. It only appears when running 'dhcpcd-gtk'.

Running from a terminal:
$ dhcpcd-gtk
** Message: Connecting ...
** Message: Status changed to down
** (dhcpcd-gtk:817): CRITICAL **: dhcpcd_open: No such file or directory

I do not use wifi. No other network manger is installed.Dhcpcd itself is working well for Ethernet through a router,so I can live without UI. Still, I would prefer it to function.

The issue has been raised before...

dhcpcd-ui works with GTK3. Shouldn't the dependency be bumped?

Have you tested with the latest upstream version 0.7.5? The AUR package has been flagged out of date.

I got the following error when trying to launch it:
** Message: Connecting ...
** Message: Status changed to down
** (dhcpcd-gtk:4497): CRITICAL **: dhcpcd_open: No such file or directory

Even though I already had connected to my network using dhcpcd at bootup time I ran dhcpcd (as root as the program told me to do) and got:
dhcpcd[4543]: version 6.7.1 starting
dhcpcd[4543]: DUID 00:01:00:01:1c:29:88:5a:60:a4:4c:b4:5d:cc
dhcpcd[4543]: eno1: IAID 4c:b4:5d:cc
** Message: Status changed to opened
** Message: Connected to dhcpcd-6.7.1
** Message: Status changed to connecting
** Message: eno1: Cable plugged in
dhcpcd[4543]: eno1: soliciting an IPv6 router
dhcpcd[4543]: eno1: rebinding lease of 192.168.7.100
dhcpcd[4543]: eno1: changing route to 192.168.7.0/24
dhcpcd[4543]: eno1: changing default route via 192.168.7.1
dhcpcd[4543]: forked to background, child pid 4555

After that I run dhcpcd-gtk again and got:
** Message: Connecting ...
** Message: Status changed to down
** Message: Status changed to opened
** Message: Connected to dhcpcd-6.7.1
** Message: Status changed to connected
** Message: eno1: CARRIER
** Message: eno1: Configured 192.168.7.100/24

But no window opened!
Is this a problem with the package and someone can confirm this or is it a problem with my config and I should ask in the forum / elsewhere?

Also, on the website notification-daemon-0.3.7 is said to be an optional dependency, is this libnotify here and should it be made optional or should sth. like notification-daemon-gtk2 be added to the dependencies?

The PKGBUILD for 0.6.0-1 is placing it icons in the wrong directory and placing its autostart file in the wrong directory. You need to change the ./configure line to:

./configure --prefix=/usr --icondir=/usr/share/icons

There also needs to be an .install script to update the icon cache.

You need to change the make install line to:

make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" AUTOSTARTDIR=/etc/xdg/autostart install

to get the autostart file in the right location.

Also the license file is missing: it can be stripped from the top of any of the .c files.

I will send you a .src package that has these corrections.
