The installation path seems to be incorrect. The package use /usr/lib/networkmanager but the existing path is /usr/lib/NetworkManager

Same here - after installing this package and libreswan, nothing shows up in NetworkManager even after a restart.

@LittleHuba: thanks for the info. I added the missing dependencies. gtk3 and gettext were also missing.

@stramaz: I installed this package today on an clean installation of RebornOS with gnome desktop and after restarting networkmanager there was a new VPN option (IPSec based VPN). So everything seens to work for me. Did you figure out your problem?

Missing dependency on 'libnma'

stramaz commented on 2019-09-05 09:14 (UTC)

Thank you @JochenJ, Now the installation works. I don't know exactly why but in NetworkManager I don't see a Ipsec based VPN (libreswan) but just Ipsec based VPN (openswan) and Ipsec based VPN (strongswan). But maybe it's not depending on this installation package

JochenJ commented on 2019-09-03 14:04 (UTC)

@stramaz: I removed the dependency to libnm-gtk. It works fine for me without. I also updated the version to 1.2.12.

Please let me know if it works for you too.

Thanks for you feedback.

I cannot finish the installation process because of libnm-gtk. I tried changing the dependency to libnm-gtk-git but at the end it is in conflict with installed libnm and it doesn't work both if I try to replace libnm-gtk or not. Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

libnm-gtk is now gone, maybe default to needing libnm-gtk-git?

Hi, this "bug" also applies to networkmanager-libreswan.

I had to do a "ln -s /usr/lib/networkmanager/nm-libreswan-auth-dialog /usr/lib/gnome-shell/" and then reboot to be able to establish a VPN connection.

Without that starting the VPN connection would just silently fail.

One has to dig through the NetworkManager logs to find the error message and google the wiki tipp linked above.

It would be nice to at least show an error message in the GUI.

Is there some way to add the sym-link to this package? Or would that have to be done in the upstream project?

after system update there is an issue that prevents ipsec to start: " Aug 16 13:11:59 pcarch NetworkManager[328]: [1502881919] libunbound[26971:0] error: error opening file /var/lib/unbound/root.key: No such file or directory Aug 16 13:11:59 pcarch NetworkManager[328]: /usr/lib/ipsec/addconn unbound error: initialization failure " To solve it do: unbound-anchor -a /var/lib/unbound/root.key Hope it helps others :)

Quoting the upstream url: "NetworkManager-libreswan replaces NetworkManager-openswan since NetworkManager 1.2.0. Use NetworkManager-openswan with 1.0 or older". Since Arch is rolling release I don't see the point of keeping openswan with latest NM.

Zearan commented on 2017-03-24 17:09 (UTC)

Well, the libreswan package does not replace the openswan package. So in my opinion this package should not either.

ilpianista commented on 2017-03-21 20:05 (UTC)

Shouldn't this replace networkmanager-openswan?

fauno commented on 2015-02-17 15:46 (UTC)

@epinephrine thanks! i added some libs needed for nm 1.0

sebstar commented on 2015-02-04 22:01 (UTC)

PKGBUILD for v1.0.0 Removed flag -Werror from src/Makefile as well since it didn't compile for me otherwise...

fauno commented on 2015-01-27 18:24 (UTC)

i never really got to use this, if anyone's willing to adopt let me know :)

eazy commented on 2014-05-19 15:31 (UTC)

Out of date, last version --

fauno commented on 2013-05-24 18:02 (UTC)

Adopted and added to Parabola's [pcr]

foobarrior commented on 2013-04-09 09:28 (UTC)

You can adopt it by yourself, if You want

thirtythreeforty commented on 2013-04-09 01:24 (UTC)

Double-check that you don't need vpnc, which is in the Arch repos.

td123 commented on 2012-10-24 02:57 (UTC)

hey, can we please get this updated? I am trying to connect to an ipsec vpn and I'm unable to because this is broken :(
