nemesis: modules interchangeability between DE and WM

Post#1 by francois » 04 Nov 2015, 22:46

Here we are interested in nemesis and the modules interchangeability between the different desktop environment (DE) and window managers (WM). My first impressions is that the modules built under the different desktop environments kde, xfce, lxde, lxqt seem to be robust enough to be used under different environments. This could be called modules robustness.

You comments and findings would be appreciated.
Carpe diem.

plasma5 and xfce4:
- networkmanager module will work in both environment. However nm-applet will not.

XFCE4

PLASMA5.
nm-applet is replaced by plasma-nm:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 9#p1575079

Intalling network manager and nm-applet on a kde5-plasma installation:

Code: Select all

root ~ # pman -S networkmanager plasma-nm
root ~ # pman -S NetworkManager plasma-nm
root ~ # systemctl stop dhcpcd (you'll lost connection here)
root ~ # systemctl disable dhcpcd
root ~ # systemctl enable NetworkManager
root ~ # systemctl start NetworkManager
To get wifi on make sure that the hardware wifi is activated with the appropriate keyboard keys and right click on nm panel icon to activate at the top the wifi icon to have access to surrounding wifi networks.
Carpe diem.
