If you want a minimum installation, only check the 'standard system utilities' option in the 'Software selection' step.

Re: Automatically start vpn on boot up ?

The connection attempt timed out...strange... You're sure the following command works if you run it manually: sudo nmcli connection up id "$VPN_NAME" There's not much more to go on here, we have to enable extra logging. Edit the file '/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf' and add (or ch...

Re: Automatically start vpn on boot up ?

Hi, I’m noticing that the automatic turning on of the vpn, often fails and I think it’s because it occurs too quickly - as running it again it normally works. It cannot start too quickly as the script is only started when the interface is up and running (issued by event). check journal: sudo journa...

Your wireless card no longer has the wl driver, did you remove that or something? I'm getting bored of this thread tbh, Broadcom is always a bastard under GNU/Linux. I told him ...

Re: Automatically start vpn on boot up ?

If it doesn't work by using the GUI, check the file contents through your terminal. What is the value of 'password-flags' and 'secret-flags'? If both are set to '0', follow the guide from the arch Wiki you mentioned before: create a passwd-file in a safe location (/path/to/passwd-file) with the same...

The script should indeed be located at:

Code: Select all

etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d
Did you try with sudo?
What's the exact command and error you got?

Re: No internet

After installing the new driver, your interface was renamed to 'wlan0'.

You should change your configs accordingly

Also for wpa_supplicant you should not have to define a service yourself.
Take a look at the link HoaS provided. You probably use WPA-PSK...

Re: No internet

It could be an issue with the driver.
Something else you can try as root:

Code: Select all

apt-get purge broadcom-sta-dkms
apt install firmware-b43-installer 
Now reboot and try again.

Make sure you check the blacklist (b43 should not be blacklisted).
