I create https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd-networkd#Basic_WiFi_DHCP_network
And after, i try to use wpa_cli or wpa_gui, its not working, because:
in /usr/lib/systemd/system/wpa_supplicant at .service
/usr/bin/wpa_supplicant starting without -B arg.

I change service file, and after, all working fine (change Type to
forking, because -B):
[Unit]
Description=WPA supplicant daemon (interface-specific version)
Requires=sys-subsystem-net-devices-%i.device
After=sys-subsystem-net-devices-%i.device

# NetworkManager users will probably want the dbus version instead.

[Service]
Type=forking
ExecStart=/usr/bin/wpa_supplicant -B
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-%I.conf -i%I

[Install]
Alias=multi-user.target.wants/wpa_supplicant@%i.service

Timofey.
