    Hello!
    After installing antiX 19.2.1_base, I followed the instructions given in this post and did the following
    `
    sudo apt-get –purge autoremove connman -y
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf
    sudo ln -s /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf
    sudo killall wpa_supplicant
    `
    wifi started, I could manage networks. But Ceni doesn’t save passwords, so it’s a tedious job to change networks. So, I installed connman again but it’s not showing the available networks.
    wpa_gui doesn’t show any adapter or network. Adding a network manually in wpa_gui returns this error Failed to enable network in wpa_supplicant configuration.
    What can be done to get connman or wpa_gui working?
    Thanks.

    Edit /etc/network/interfaces file to only have this:

    #------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    # /etc/network/interfaces
    #
    # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
    # Used by ceni but not by connman
    #------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    

    You might want a gui frontend for connman – available are connman-gtk, connman-ui or cmst

    Best to reboot and then run connman again

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
