Netctl GUI 1.4.5

As its name suggests, Netctl GUI is an open source and freely distributed graphical user interface for the netctl command-line program that allows users to manage network connections under the Arch Linux operating system.

Offers a modern way for managing network connections

The application has been designed from the ground up to be easy to use and to offer a modern way for managing network connections under any Arch Linux system. We should also mention that the program works on any distribution of Linux based on Arch Linux.

Its GUI front-end is quite simple and easy to use, allowing users to connect to existing network profiles, as well as to create new ones. It also integrates a separate Plasmoid widget for the KDE Plasma Workspace and Application desktop.

Getting started with Netctl GUI

When creating a new profile, user will be able to setup various aspects, such as description, connection, interface, IP options, Ethernet options, and much more. It’s also possible to connect to a Wi-Fi (Wireless) network directly from the application.

From the Settings dialog, users can change the main language, as well as to set various paths, for the netctl executable, the profile directory, the sudo executable, wpa_supplicant, and many others.

Under the hood and supported desktop environments

It is written in the C++ programming language and uses the Qt GUI toolkit for the graphical user interface. In addition, it has been designed to work under the KDE desktop environment, which means that it requires the KDE runtime libraries.

However, the program also supports other open source desktop environments, such as GNOME, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE, or LXDE. It will support only Arch Linux distributions, simply because the netctl program has been designed only for this operating system.

Bottom line

Overall, Netctl GUI is not the first or the last graphical front-end for netctl, but it certainly is a modern and easy-to-use one that provides users with a Plasmoid for the KDE desktop, so you can quickly interact with netctl.
