HOWTO: Manjaro (Arch) Network Manager plug-in

Postby Tinctorius » Sat Feb 08, 2014 2:46 am

This HOWTO already exists, see viewtopic.php?f=37&t=3978 I put this link in a new topic for all the Manjaro and Arch users who cannot get Cryptostorm going from the command line, just as I did. I have sent numerous emails to the ever friendly and helpful guys of Cryptostorm, in the end Philip Müller, lead developer of Manjaro showed this guide which worked right away. By the way, Network Manager is called Network Connections in Manjaro. Thank you DesuStrike, cheers :P

Manjaro does have a community Gnome edition, but the standard manjaro uses xfce for desktop. Intalling Gnome packages may cause the gnome WM to be installed as a dependancy.
All Manjaro's/arch use pacman/youirt rather then apt-get. So apt-get <anything>, will fail.
In other words- ignore all apt-get install instructions and package names from that tutorial...

'Add/Remove Software' in the menu, or 'pacman' from terminal can be used to get
openvpn
networkmanager-openvpn

-if they arn't installed by default. (I think they might be actually) Those are all you need.
other then that, the above linked tutorial is seams helpful for useing Network Manager. -particularly the note to uncheck 'allow all users to use this connection'.
network manager on manjaro works pretty much the same as it does on ubuntu.
I havn't used CS via network manager for quite awhile but I recall it was fairly straight forword at the time.
