An unintelligible sentence

To connect to an open network simple use the enter the second field beginning with wifi_:

What is that supposed to mean? axper (talk) 20:34, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Is [1] better? The article has other clarity issues, though. -- Alad (talk) 09:50, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Resume connection after suspend

On my laptop (Thinkpad X61) connman doesn't restore the wifi connection after resuming from suspend. To have it working again I have to un/set the physical wifi switch. I've found a workaround, but it's crude and the issue may be hardware-related (though wicd works just fine, maybe because it has resume scripts) so I'm leaving it here for review.

/etc/systemd/system/connman-resume.service
[Unit]
Description=Connman resume actions
After=suspend.target

[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/usr/bin/systemctl restart connman.service
ExecStart=/usr/bin/sh -c 'sleep 1; /usr/bin/rfkill unblock 0 1'

[Install]
WantedBy=suspend.target
# systemctl enable connman-resume

edit: There's a setting in connman.conf, PersistentTetheringMode, but it doesn't seem to work. I'll bring this up to the connman mailing list. -- Alad (talk) 18:23, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Official GUI client status

[2] Official user interfaces exist, should they be promoted over other UIs? —This unsigned comment is by Jgke (talk) 06:54, 4 September 2015‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

There's a difference between announced on a blog hosted on 01.org, and an "official" client. The connman source tree contains no graphical clients. extensions.gnome.org has free registration. [3] Also:
"In addition to these UIs, Arch linux has an excellent list of ConnMan UIs."

There's connman-gnome. It is however stale since 2013. -- Alad (talk) 10:53, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
