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.

This package doesn't seem to work correctly for networkmanager Cannot input password / no pop up box anymore. I switched to the one in the repos

Why can gnome-shell only use the gtk3 version?

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.

Works now! Thanks for maintaining this! :)

@sumt Try that I just posted. It looks like a GIRSCAN included Gtk-3.0 instead of Gtk-2.0, the new PKGBUILD patches this. I happen to have gtk3 installed and that is why it didn't fail for me.

Building failed for me too:

Sorry. By out-of-date I meant it doesn't compile due to perl-xml-parser being a new dependency or so. But now I checked, and I have both perl-xml-parser and intltool installed and the configure script somehow doesn't detect it. Not sure if there is something wrong with my setup. (just reinstalled perl-xml-parser to be sure).
