LXDE on the other hand uses GTK, so I think network-manager-gnome is a better fit there. (both disk footprint and memory usage wise)Ah. My apologies. I thought nm-applet was provided by nm-tray. I was wrong. I did not know that nm-applet was part of network-manager-gnome! So I agree with network-manager-gnome being a better fit for LXDE.Regarding LXQT: this DE already installs cmst by default (an Qt based GUI for connman, which also has a system tray icon), and since there were no complains so far from LXQT users related to the network management tool used, I would not touch LXQT for this. A patch to address this issue for LXDE is attached.
So now you have 3 network configuration systems involved: - ifupdown, which is still installed by default - connman, which is pulled in by the lxde package (via connman-gtk) - network-manager(-gnome), which is pulled in via task-lxde-desktop that doesn't sound like a good solution.
