I am new to RP & have been searching for 24 hours for this.
I have a 'ThePiHut' USB wifi dongle. It seemed to install its own drivers when I plugged it in and I used the wpa_gui to successfully connect to a wireless network.
I now need to use an OpenVPN. My provider uses 'Network Manager'.
I have installed this and the gnome gui:
sudo apt-get install network-manager sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
The gnome gui works, and I get a tray icon, and can click Add for VPN and Wireless. However - the windows that come up have every textbox greyed out.
Wifi/internet is still working. I have tried rebooting many times.
I'm sure I'm missing some crucial step or binding or something.
Primarily I'd like to get VPN working through a GUI. Perhaps I also need to get wireless working through the 'Network Manager' GUI too (both would be nice for easy of configuration'.
How can I do this? Is 'Network Manager' the best tool? Thanks.
