I am using Windowmaker and would like to start VPN from the command line. I have followed various suggestions to do this and I am able to start VPN from the command line as long as I am in Unity. However, exactly the same procedure fails when I am in Window Maker. I then then get the error message:
Active connection state: unknown Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/10 state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2) Error: Connection activation failed: no valid VPN secrets
What can I do?
