To connect a Linux system to the eduroam wireless network, the client must have a web browser installed and running both a desktop environment and network-manager.
Only automated installs are supported on Linux clients. If the automated install fails, please use the ncsu wireless network.
Click the Wireless icon on the the bottom right hand corner of your screen to display available wireless networks. Select ncsu.
Open a Browser and go to https://go.ncsu.edu/eduroam. Click Enroll your device in eduroam.
You should see a screen with your operating system already chosen. Make sure Linux is selected. Click on JoinNow.
You will be prompted to or will automatically download a script called SecureW2_JoinNow.run. Click Save File if prompted.
Open a Terminal window and navigate to the downloaded file.
Type in sh SecureW2_JoinNow.run and press Enter to run the script file. Note: Do not run the script as root or sudo.
Hit enter to launch the login screen when prompted to sign-in.
On the Shibboleth login page: Enter your credentials and select Log In. Accept the Duo Prompt (if enabled).
Once the install script completes and the terminal output indicates Joined… the device is setup. The Wireless icon will display a connection to eduroam.
