This package seems to work just fine with regular old libnm-glib rather than libnm-glib-ifupdown and networkmanager-ifupdown.

I've done a new port of 1.0.10 to GTK2:

No, libnm-glib-ifupdown is provided by the networkmanager-ifupdown package, and this is the one it must install with, not the one in extra.

Change dependency libnm-glib-ifupdown to libnm-glib or split the package networkmanager-ifupdown into two. Dependency loop as libnm-glib-ifupdown is not provided as it's own package.

networkmanager-applet 0.9.10 no longer supports gtk2; however, the 0.9.8 applet will not run against the 0.9.10 network manager. So, I added a dependency on networkmanager-ifupdown and libnm-glib-ifupdown which are frozen at the version. It should build and install the entire dependency tree properly now.

Why can gnome-shell only use the gtk3 version?

balwierz commented on 2014-05-01 15:57

This package should NOT provide "network-manager-applet". If it does like now then a subsequent installation of gnome-shell (which requires network-manager-applet) will not try to replace your package with the gtk3 version - the only one gnome-shell can use. As a result the installed gnome-shell will try to launch this gtk2 version and will crash not even telling you what's wrong.
