This is a modified package configured to get NetworkManager working exclusively with iwd. Main difference with upstream version is that iwd is required and wpa_supplicant is not needed (so you can uninstall it); iwd seems more reliable on certain wireless cards, so someone could prefer it in place of wpa_supplicant.

It's recommended to enable systemd iwd.service at boot: systemctl enable iwd.service

Tested with Plasma NM system tray applet (plasma-nm), it's working.

Note that wpa_supplicant is still needed to build the package, but you can uninstall it after the building stage.

Yes, confirmed. As per this comment by heftig:

Thanks to Fabian, as of 2.80.3-1, the development utilities requiring additional dependencies (python, python-packaging, libelf) have been split from glib2 into glib2-devel with proper depends. You may need to add glib2-devel to the makedepends of your packages to get them to build again. At the same time, consider removing python or python-packaging from the makedepends if they were only added to run gdbus-codegen, glib-genmarshal or glib-mkenums.

Well, in this case glib2-devel should probably be added to makedepends instead of glib2?

If anyone else encounters this error during the build:

ERROR: Dependency 'gio-2.0' tool variable 'gdbus_codegen' contains erroneous value: '/usr/bin/gdbus-codegen'

Make sure you have the glib2-devel package installed.

Build-time dependency gio-2.0 found: YES 2.80.3
Program /usr/bin/gdbus-codegen found: NO

NetworkManager/introspection/ ERROR: Dependency 'gio-2.0' tool variable 'gdbus_codegen' contains erroneous value: '/usr/bin/gdbus-codegen'

This is a distributor issue -- please report it to your gio-2.0 provider.

Anybody else getting this when trying to build?

Thanks Tomodoro for that research, and sorry for the delay. Turns out that the default location for polkit_agent_helper_1 is already the correct one, so I have omitted it completely.

saubakirov: I have no clue what these error messages mean – I hope this update fixes the build for you, too.

Package not updating, I'm getting this error

Cloning networkmanager-iwd build files...

The source code replaced the build option polkit_agent with polkit_agent_helper_1_path on this commit with the description "Path name to the polkit-agent-helper-1 binary from polkit", then renamed it to polkit_agent_helper_1 on this other commit.

I searched on the polkit package the path to the file polkit-agent-helper-1 and I got /usr/lib/polkit-1/.

I replaced the line -D polkit_agent=true with the line -D polkit_agent_helper_1=/usr/lib/polkit-1/ on the PKGBUILD and I was able to compile successfully.

How can I fix this?

pyxel: Works for me, so wouldn't it be sufficient to add that to your /etc/makepkg.conf?
