- 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

Interesting project, but I would say, that it's a bit overbloated in sense of features. It should be just a frontend to netcgf2, in my opinion, all other features are abundant. That way, it would serve as a brilliant solution for KDE-users on Arch that can't use NM.

I agree. I would be much more inclined to use ArchAssistant if I had the option to put it in 'netcfg2-only' mode or something along those lines.

But there hasn't been an update for over a year, maybe someone needs to fork/adopt the project?

actually there's something similar called netcfgGUI, it's in the AUR.

I really like AA, but it needs some more customization options and a bit more explanations on what options do what. I've been using it for the last weeks and it's great tho, I was so tired of NM and all its bugs!

 Slow connection

I have a problem with the connection at startup. I use KDE. Usually archassistant does not recognize my network automatically, and even if it does it takes a good minute to connect to it. net-auto-wireless daemon is active, everything should be fine.
Is there a way for connecting to the network before or during the KDM login?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
