was offline for several hours due to some infrastructure work, should be ok now already. If it is not, could you please show me mtr/curl response?

the url homepage is down?

All my tabs are empty, I can't see my profiles (the path is set correctly) and it says netctl-auto is not running but I've a netctl-auto@interface.service running. I replaced kdesu by lxsu, even in debug mode I have no error. netctlgui-helper print "The helper is running with EUID 1000. Some functions may not be available." but I don't think it's useful.

hmmm. Could you please post output of the following commands:

pacman -Qi qt5-base gcc libc++
find /usr/include -name cstddef

it looks like you are using clang as compiler so you will need to have libc++ installed. (It is not mentioned in any dep list because "default" compiler is still gcc, which is in base-devel group and then it should not be specified.)

Build process fails. Error messages:

arcanis commented on 2016-09-21 17:15

it uses kdesu as default frontend to sudo. You can configure it by setting the following option in the .config/netctl-gui.conf:


installing and enabling helper should solve this problem as well

voidptr commented on 2016-09-21 16:16

The configuration option does stop the initial error, but then it pops up "Could not run helper".

Running which true returns:

$ which true /usr/bin/netctl /usr/bin/netctl-auto /usr/bin/kdesu
which: no kdesu in (/usr/bin)

Oddly, Arch claims kdesu is properly installed. I run Mate as my WM and don't have KDE installed, and I didn't think I needed to. The kdesu package doesn't seem to require KDE being present... but maybe it does?

The netctl-gui documentation is very light. Does netctl-gui require kdesu?

you can use this hint:



I've just build the app from source and removed my configuration (to be sure that it will run with default settings) and could not reproduce this behaviour. If you run application from command line as netctl-gui -d you will see something like following:

[2016-09-12T12:02:06.082Z][checkExternalApps] : Applications "netctl"
[2016-09-12T12:02:06.084Z][checkExternalApps] : Run cmd "which true /usr/bin/netctl /usr/bin/netctl-auto /usr/bin/kdesu"
[2016-09-12T12:02:06.106Z][checkExternalApps] : Cmd returns 0

Try to run this cmd yourself and see what it says.

Doesn't work.

I get "Error! Could not find components", and when you view details: "netctl, netctl-auto, kdesu". All of these are installed in the appropriate locations. I even went so far as to add the actual paths in ~/.config/netctl-gui.conf ( /usr/bin/netctl etc.), but then it just says it can't find them in the full path.

I use netctl all the time, and it does work.

So, bug?

Up-to-date Arch, never worked from initial installation.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2016-01-12 23:34

yes. but I get xembedsniproxy segfault when reactive netctl-gui on systray and logout/login before rebuild netctl-gui(all packages). after rebuild, the segfault is gone
