hmmm. Could you please post output of the following commands:

pacman -Qi qt5-base gcc libc++
find /usr/include -name cstddef

it looks like you are using clang as compiler so you will need to have libc++ installed. (It is not mentioned in any dep list because "default" compiler is still gcc, which is in base-devel group and then it should not be specified.)

Build process fails. Error messages: http://pastebin.com/bSKixPjB

it uses kdesu as default frontend to sudo. You can configure it by setting the following option in the .config/netctl-gui.conf:


installing and enabling helper should solve this problem as well

voidptr commented on 2016-09-21 16:16

The configuration option does stop the initial error, but then it pops up "Could not run helper".

Running which true returns:

$ which true /usr/bin/netctl /usr/bin/netctl-auto /usr/bin/kdesu
which: no kdesu in (/usr/bin)

Oddly, Arch claims kdesu is properly installed. I run Mate as my WM and don't have KDE installed, and I didn't think I needed to. The kdesu package doesn't seem to require KDE being present... but maybe it does?

The netctl-gui documentation is very light. Does netctl-gui require kdesu?

you can use this hint:



I've just build the app from source and removed my configuration (to be sure that it will run with default settings) and could not reproduce this behaviour. If you run application from command line as netctl-gui -d you will see something like following:

[2016-09-12T12:02:06.082Z][checkExternalApps] : Applications "netctl"
[2016-09-12T12:02:06.084Z][checkExternalApps] : Run cmd "which true /usr/bin/netctl /usr/bin/netctl-auto /usr/bin/kdesu"
[2016-09-12T12:02:06.106Z][checkExternalApps] : Cmd returns 0

Try to run this cmd yourself and see what it says.

Doesn't work.

I get "Error! Could not find components", and when you view details: "netctl, netctl-auto, kdesu". All of these are installed in the appropriate locations. I even went so far as to add the actual paths in ~/.config/netctl-gui.conf ( /usr/bin/netctl etc.), but then it just says it can't find them in the full path.

I use netctl all the time, and it does work.

So, bug?

Up-to-date Arch, never worked from initial installation.

yes. but I get xembedsniproxy segfault when reactive netctl-gui on systray and logout/login before rebuild netctl-gui(all packages). after rebuild, the segfault is gone

arcanis commented on 2016-01-12 18:01

as far as I understand, it should no be related to this package. Plasma applet use default KDE libraries to paint own in systray, so xembedsniproxy (which uses to provide "legacy" tray compatibility) does not work with this icon.

Qt5 application tray icon does not use xembedsniproxy too, only qt4 version do it.

In other hand I see the same issue for several other tray applets (including official KDE ones), so I believe that there is a problem on Plasma side.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2016-01-11 19:09

i found a problem with plasma5-applet-netctl-gui

always get transparent icon when loging/relogin plasma5

when disable and enable again in systray, when logout/relogin, the icons gets transparent

rebuild netctl-gui no fix the issue

and in my last attemps (before rebuild) i get this (posted on kde bugtraker)


for possible ralation

I think there is a bug: now all profiles are in italic, as if all enabled...(really I have only one enabled)
Only option with the context menu is disabling.
