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.

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

Shouldn't this replace networkmanager-openswan?

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