Switch from netctl to NetworkManager on Arch Linux

On my notebook I finally decided to try NetworkManager with its applet

After installing. I had to check status of some networking services and disable them.

systemctl status dhcpcd.service
sudo systemctl stop netctl.service
sudo systemctl stop netctl-ifplugd@eth0.service
sudo systemctl status netctl-ifplugd@eth0.service
sudo systemctl stop netctl-auto@wlan0.service

And then wait for the magic after starting NetworkManager
sudo systemctl start NetworkManager.service

network manager applet

I should have searched for a how to video on YouTube and could save some debugging time with journalctl -f 🙂 After setup I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAi9DurTRQc
