Set up Eduroam on Linux
Note about the used setup tool
A Python script is used as installation program. It will try to install eduroam in the NetworkManager. If the system is not managed by NetworkManager or the version is too old, a wpa_supplicant configuration file will be created instead. The installation program creates a .cat_installer subdirectory in your personal folder and copies the server certificates there.
In some distributions, the following packages need to be post-installed: dbus-python, python-distro
Step 1: Open CAT website and download installation
If you currently have Internet access:
Go to the cat.eduroam.org website. Your operating system will be detected automatically. Then click on the large blue field with the name of your operating system.
If you do NOT currently have internet access and are at an HTW campus:
Connect your device to the open WLAN "HowToUseEduroam". This is available at HTW campuses and allows you to access these instructions and download the Eduroam installation profile via the following link: cat.rz.htw-berlin.de
Then click on the big blue field with the name of your operating system.
Step 2: Open terminal and install Python profile
Call up the "Terminal" tool via the program overview. Use the command "cd" to change to the directory where you saved the Python script from step 1 of this manual. Then start the installation of the eduroam setup with the command "python3 eduroam-linux-eduroam-htw-berlin.py".
Step 4: HTW user name
Please enter your HTW user name with the extension @htw-berlin.de (e.g. "email@example.com" or "firstname.lastname@example.org") and confirm with "OK".
Attention: Please do not confuse the user name with your HTW e-mail address FirstName.Surname@htw-berlin.de! This can not be used here.
