This guide will help you get the eduroam connection working. It assumes you are using Network Manager for handing your network connections (which if you've been following our install guides, should be true).
You will only need
wget as extra software. Install it:
sudo apt install wget
sudo pacman -S wget
From the terminal:
Make a folder in your home directory (I'll use the folder
.eduroam_ca in this guide), download the file:
mkdir ~/.eduroam_ca cd ~/.eduroam_ca wget -O ca.pem https://www.quovadisglobal.com/wp-content/files/media/qvrca2g3_pem.pem
Now download the connection configuration:
You have to edit this file. Open it with gedit:
gedit eduroam.nmconnection &
[computer user](the whole thing,
included!) with your username. You can find it out by running
whoamiin the terminal.
[path to ca.pem]with the full path to the
ca.pemfile. The full path should look something like
[computer user]is your username (like I explained above).
[student username]with your UoB student username. They look something like
[UoB password]with your UoB account password.
Save and close the window.
Copy the file in the configurations directory of Network Manager (you must use sudo):
sudo cp eduroam.nmconnection /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections
Reload Network Manager:
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager
You should now be able to see
eduroam in your WiFi list and, when in range, connect to it.
