Netctl GUI

Information

Qt4/Qt5 graphical interface for netctl. It may work with profiles and may create new profiles. Also it may create a connection to WiFi. Moreover, it provides a widget and DataEngine for KDE4/KF5.

NOTE LOOKING FOR TRANSLATORS!

Configuration

It is recommended to use graphical interface for configuration. Configuration files are:

  • $HOME/.config/netctl-gui.conf - GUI/helper user configuration
  • /etc/netctl-gui.conf - helper system-wide configuration
  • $HOME/.config/plasma-dataengine-netctl.conf - DataEngine user configuration
  • /etc/xdg/plasma-dataengine-netctl.conf - DataEngine system-wide configuration

Instruction

Dependencies

  • netctl
  • qt5-base (if Qt5 is used) or qt4 (if Qt4 is used)

Optional dependencies

  • kdebase-workspace (KDE4 widget)
  • plasma-framework (KF5 widget)
  • sudo (sudo support)
  • wpa_supplicant (WiFi support)

Make dependencies

  • automoc4
  • cmake
  • qt5-tools (if Qt5 is used)

Installation

  • download sources

    cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../
    make
    sudo make install
