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 ­čÖé After setup I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAi9DurTRQc

Network connection speed in status bar on Android

Don’t know if it’s a new Android feature or Xiaomi improvement, but I┬ádefinitely like network connection speed in the status bar.

If you don’t have it in the Notifications settings menu

Xiaomi notifications, toggle Show connection speed

than you could use an app for that, e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.internet.speed.meter.lite
