You could add netcfg-wireguard as optional dependency.

Note: I re-worked the PKGBUILD, and I fixed a bug with wifi-menu with a newer version of wpa-supplicant, and some other small bugfixes. Find it here.

(N.b. -- while doing so I created a "-git"-version of the package, and uploaded it as netcfg-git to the AUR.)

Version 4.0 is out: If you download the latest git source (and not a fixed vesion as done here), there is a newer version (according to "CHANGELOG").

There are updates needed for netcfg, especially the wireless-part (wifi-menu):

  • wpa_supplicant seems to have changed that the output "Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant" now is printed to stdout and not anymore stderr. That breaks the whole thing (only visible symptom is that wifi-menu exists with ":: Aborted" when there is not already a wifi-connection).

Solution: In the file


in the function



> /dev/stderr

after the invocation of wpa_supplicant.

Also, remove the /usr/lib/network/hooks/initscripts file, since the files sourced therein are not there anymore.

Many of the reported bugs in netcfg have to do with wireless connections. Sinces I do not have wireless connection is would be grate if contributers focues on that; but of cause any contributions are gratefully accepted.
