Testing of new network-Panel in Unity , Libnm port >= 1.2 (Eoan)

Since libnm-glib will be removed in 19.10, I have ported the network panel from g-c-c 3.26.

Branch 1: https://code.launchpad.net/~khurshid-alam/unity-control-center/libnm-port
Branch2 : https://code.launchpad.net/~khurshid-alam/unity-settings-daemon/libnm-port

How to test:

Add the ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity7maintainers/unity7-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-control-center libunity-control-center1 unity-settings-daemon libunity-settings-daemon1

Reboot. Go to unity-control-center->network, check if everything is working.

Note: If you vpn/vlan or ip-tunnel, there is NO gui in network panel (as g-c-c doesn’t have gui yet), in that case just use nm-connection-editor from unity panel.

Is this repo, https://launchpad.net/~unity7maintainers/+archive/ubuntu/unity7-desktop, still valid?

Everything works. Thanks. :sunny:

Yes, that’s the valid repo. I just didn’t change the name from 19.04 to 19.10. Thanks for testing.

Just checked. Everything working well here.

Looking good. WFM in a VM.

Why no VPN though? g-c-c 3.32 certainly has it, is it fundamentally different from 3.26 that makes it impossible to port?

VPN is there but for it is falling back for nm-applet ui. GCC also copies its code.

Porrting to 3.32 is not impossible but it is tied to other panel like power in which they removed lot of code which unity requires. I will backport some commit from 3.32 in future. Cinnamon also uses 3.26. So it’s fine.

Copy that, and thank you for your hard work :+1:
