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.

@glitsj16: you're right, same double vala entry is in upstream PKGBUILD. Fixed, thanks.

This is working great, link speed almost doubled. One small note, the current PKGBUILD contains 'vala' twice on line 19 in the makedepends array.
