- ArchAssistant v0.4 -

ArchAssistant is a systray docking app that lets you have quick access to various administration aspects of the Arch Linux distro. The main feature is a gui for the Arch's network profiles system (using the netcfg command line), which is very useful for laptop users.

- quick access to the main system files (ie rc.conf, profile, pacman.conf, xorg.conf ...) via a built-in simple text editor.
- netcfg2 front-end : quite complete GUI for the Arch's network profile system. You can connect to, create and edit network profiles in a few clicks. ArchAssistant has an autostart functionality that lets the app connect to the first wifi network discovered upon start.
- the pacman part has been mostly disabled (didn't work as expected).
- collection of the most useful command lines to check system informations.
- custom app launcher from menu
- download clipboard's url with your favorite download manager
- load/eject CD-ROM tray
- instant connection wizard
- english, french, german translations

I took the liberty of adding this program to the Arch Linux AUR repository. You can find it here:

I had updated the PKGBUILD, but deleted the original packages in the process (I'm new at adding packages under Arch Linux's AUR). The new URL to the package is:

Cool thanx for providing it as package build!
And also thanx to the author! This is what I've been looking for for a friend of mine, and especially for finding new access points and connecting to them via netcfg2. Very useful!
Does it have to be run as superuser via "sudo"?

The program does not absolutely need root access to function, but if you want to edit system-wide configuration files with this utility, you would have to do either one of two things:

1. use sudo to run the program


2. if you prefer not to use sudo, you can modify the menu entry to run as the root user using the menu editor

Also, thanks for the feedback. It's good to know that setting up the Arch Linux package is helping others use this program.

I find this tool quite useful. Congrats !
Keep up the good work.

I was wondering though if you have some public svn so I could get the latest changes, maybe I could even help on this project?

Any help welcome !
There is no svn at the moment.

What I need more for now are suggestions for the future developments of archassistant.

Let me know if you have some ideas.

Hi there! I'm an Arch Linux user from Brazil. I'm interested in translate your great tool to our language. Is there a translation module or i can do that just by editing the source?

This is a fantastic and easy tool, congrats.

I hope you can contact me by mail:

 using wrong cflags

This hasn't run for a while so I tried recompiling it and it isn't using my CFLAGS for some reason, but I don't see anything in the makefile that would cause it to change my settings.

Its using

-march=i686 -mtune=core2 (among others) Definitely don't have a core2

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
