The main strongswan package is responsible for installing this file, not the NetworkManager plugin package. If I would include this file in the package, this will lead to a conflict with the main package, when the new version including the necessary patches will be released.

Thus, I'm preferring to *not* include the policy file in the package. Please install strongswan-git or put the file there yourself, as long as the changes are not included in a release. Please remember to add the configuration option --enable-nm when compiling strongswan.

(And while you're at it, those files are being moved to /usr/share/dbus-1/system.d/ rather than /etc.)

The package doesn't install "nm-strongswan-service.conf" (to /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ ), resulting in an error :
'Connection ":X.YY" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.strongswan" due to security policies in the configuration file'.
Just copying the file over from the _original_ source tree (because it's not in the tarball) does solve the issue.

Updated to v1.4.0, but this requires some changes, that haven't been released in any version yet. Thus, I added a dependency to strongswan >= 5.5.1, even if this version doesn't exist yet.

Please use strongswan-git, as long as there is no release available containing the latest changes.

A pull request for NetworkManager 1.2 support has been created at the GitHub repo [1], we just have to wait until it gets merged.

It seems to be already reported here.

It works just fine when using the GNOME settings instead of the NM GUI.

Yes. NN tells me that no VPN modules are available.

Have you added the compile flag for strongswan as I stated in the very first comment?

abi commented on 2016-08-07 09:25

Doesn't work for me. Compiles, but no Strongswan options are available at all, like plugin is not installed.

I have provided a separate strongswan-networkmanager package as the strongswan maintainer does not wish to add --enable-nm.
