.TH CMST 1 "5 January 2015" "Version: 2014.12.12"
CMST - Connman System Tray
Usage: cmst [options]
A QT5 based GUI front end for the Connman network daemon
\fB-c, --disable-counters [Experimental] \fP
Disable the counters. May be used to minimize load on your system.
\fB-d, --disable-tray-icon\fP
Disable the system tray icon. May be needed for system trays not compliant with the system tray specification.
\fB-h, --help\fP
Displays this help.
\fB-i, --icon-theme\fP
Use the icon theme from your system if one is defined.
\fB-l, --log-input-request\fP
Log the Connman inputRequest for debugging purposes.
\fB-m, --minimized\fP
Start the GUI minimized in the system tray.
\fB-v, --version\fP
Displays version information.
\fB-w, --wait-time <seconds>\fP
Specify the wait time in seconds before starting the system tray icon (default is 0 seconds). If CMST is started and tries to
create a tray icon before the system tray itself is created a dialog will be displayed explaining that. This sometimes happens when the
program is started automatically. If you know the tray will exist once the system is up you may specify a wait time and CMST
will wait that number of seconds before trying to create the tray icon. This is to give the window manager or panel time to create
the tray before we try to place the icon there.
\fB--counter-update-kb <KB> [Experimental]\fP
Specify the amount of data in KB that must be transmitted before the counters update (default is 1024 KB).
Connman will accept this entry, but according to a comment in the Connman code the actual feature still needs to be implemented.
\fB--counter-update-rate <seconds> [Experimental]\fP
Specify the frequency in seconds between counter updates (default is 10 seconds).
\fB--fake-transparency <RRGGBB>\fP
On some systems the system tray icon background, which is transparent, will display as white or black. This seems to be an issue
between QT, system tray implementations, compositing, and perhaps certain graphics cards. To work around it we've implemented
a fake transparency for tray icons. To use it specify the system tray background color with this option. If the background color
is provided CMST will convert the tray icon image to have the specified background color. Color is a hex number in the format: RRGGBB.
Use code specific for XFCE. As of 2014.11.24 there seems to be a problem with QT5.3 and the XFCE system tray. There is code
in the program to try and work around this issue. If the bug gets fixed in QT5.4 (or later) this option will remain so that
user start up scripts and commands do not break, but it will be a no operation place holder.
Use code specific for MATE. As of 2014.11.24 there seems to be a problem with QT5.3 and the XFCE system tray. There is code
in the program to try and work around this issue. If the bug gets fixed in QT5.4 (or later) this option will remain so that
user start up scripts and commands do not break, but it will be a no operation place holder.
Command line options marked
.I [Experimental]
refer to some option in Connman that is currently flagged experimental. These options should not be assumed to be fixed and could
change at any time. Other command line options may be assumed to be fixed and should be safe to use in startup scripts.
The GUI contains one main dialog with separate tab pages. Program help is mainly provided through a "What's This" interface.
The "What's This" button in the lower left corner will allow you to enter "What's This" mode, click the button and then
click the GUI feature, or control that you are interested in. A right mouse click on a GUI feature or control will also enter
"What's This" mode.
.I Status Tab
The status tab displays information about the global properties, found technologies, and services. Checkbox at the top right will
allow you to put everything in "offline" mode. To toggle a technology on or off click the entry under the Powered column
.I Details Tab
The details tab will display detailed setup and connection information about a service. Select the service you wish to investigate
in the combo box at the top.
.I Wireless Tab
The Wireless tab will display information, connect, disconnect, and edit certain properties of wireless services.
.I Counters Tab
The Counters tab will display information about the Connect time, the Transmit (TX) and Receiving (RX) counters for the service
currently in the "online" state. The counters are set to fairly course intervals to minimize system usage. Currently these
interval settings are hard coded into the program.
.I Preferences Tab
The preferences tab will allow you to change some aspects of the GUI.
For typical networks and access points, even hidden ones, Connman will find and automatically configure the network for you. If Connman
needs information, for instance a passphrase, CMST registers an agent and this agent will prompt you for the needed information. For
most cases this "just works", however there are options for fine tuning the automatic configuration or creating provisioning files.
\fBProfile Editor\fP
There are a variety of connection settings that may be used to override the automatic settings. An editor is provided to access
these settings via the
.B Configuration
button in the lower right corner of the
.I Details
tab. One common use is to define a static IP address for the connection. Hidden or provisioned (see below) services cannot be edited.
\fB802.1x Encrypted Networks (Eduroam and similar)\fP
Certain types encrypted networks require a config (provisioning) file to be created before you first connect. As of 2014.10.30 CMST
has a provisioning editor built in, but it is considered an advanced control and by default it is hidden. To enable the control check the
.B Advanced Controls
box on the
.I Provisioning
tab. The button to open the editor will appear in the lower left corner of the dialog. With this editor you may create, open, edit,
delete and save config files to /var/lib/connman. The menu at the top may be used to enter some information automatically, and many
of the input fields are validated as you enter text into them. There are also predefined template files that may be used to seed the
editing area. All of this can be bypassed if you wish and you may cut and paste or type into the editor directly.
For the tray icon to display is it required that the system tray be compliant with the systemtray specification.
The tray icon is known to not work in the DWM system tray which appears to be a noncompliant tray.
Tray icons will display with a black background, this is particularly noticable when you have a light colored tray. This is a QT5 bug.
