@simargl
Didn't have much time to test, but the first thing I saw was that SpaceFM has lost his fat headerbar...


BTW:
Sourceforge says today: 1,078 weekly downloads

Pretty 8-) if you ask me.

Never even got this popup but that sounds good
in the sense as a better replacement of frisbee.

will try following your setup and check

Connman works in 14.5 too

Connman works in 14.5 too :)
I made a module with
makesb connman connman-ui-git
and placed it in the modules folder.
Below is my .start showing connman additions namely, "wpa_supplicant -u &", "connmand &" and "connman-ui-gtk &".

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/bash
/etc/rc.d/hwclock start &
wpset_shell --init &
setxkbmap us -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp &
wpa_supplicant -u &
numlockx off &
xset b off &
volumeicon &
mpg123 -q /usr/share/audio/login.mp3 &
sleep 1s
tint2 &
connmand &
connman-ui-gtk &
cupsd &
sleep 2s
conky &
sleep 15s
rdate -s tick.greyware.com
exit

Moving tint panel to the top seems to solve the tiny wifi popup window issue. I disabled frisbee and I was able to connect through connman :) Using it now.
Cheers.

How fast is the connection made with connman?

Compared to frisbee?

In terms of persistent connection and ease of use, I think connman wins and its faster to me too. I have had it hours on end even on iphone 5 wifi hotspot while Frisbee sometimes drops connection unexpectedly. However, Frisbee wins in the tweaking department as the gui gives a lot of tweaking options than connman.
Cheers.
