To help staff and students of Knowsley Community College connect to the eduroam wireless network, this page provides instructions for connecting from a Linux computer.

These instructions should be followed whilst on campus at Knowsley Community College.

Visitors to Knowsley Community College who wish to use eduroam should have already setup their device based on their home site’s instructions before visiting.

  • Download and open the eduroam installer script  and run it on your Linux computer.
  • The installer is in the form of a bash script. It will try to configure eduroam under Network Manager and if this is either not appropriate for your system or your version of Network Manager is too old, a wpa_supplicant config file will be created instead.
  • The installer will create .eduroam sub-directory in your home directory and will copy your server certificates there.
  • You will be requested to enter your account credentials during the installation. Enter the following:
    Username: Your College username with on the end. For example if your College username is normally aa40123 you would enter Entering your email address or your username without will not work.
