Heyas. So, I got Plasma to work just the way I want, and don’t feel the need for GNOME any more, so I uninstalled it. But I think I fucked it up somehow and also uninstalled my network manager, along other things. Couldn’t get them back either, because they were not in cache and couldn’t download them because there was no internet.
What I did to fix things:
- Created a Wired Network on systemd-netwrkd
“sudo nano /etc/systemd/network/20-wired.network”
- Pasted the following in the file (without quotes):
Quit nano and saved the file
Enabled systemd-networkd and systemd-resolved services
“sudo systemctl enable systemd-networkd.service
sudo systemctl enable systemd-resolved.service”
Now there was a way to connect to the internet using USB tethering on my phone & I guess wired connection would’ve worked too.
- Installed networkmanager
“sudo pacman -S networkmanager”
- Enabled the NetworkManager service
“sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager.service”
- Disabled systemd-networkd services
“sudo systemctl disable systemd-networkd.service
sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service”
- Rebooted and got a working internet. Then I could reinstall all the missing packages (reinstalled Plasma).
What to learn from this? Do not uninstall GNOME using “-Rncs” or whatever the hell the command was that borked everything.
