Re: HOWTO set up Juniper Network Connect VPN on Ubuntu Dapper
I didn't need to install Motif or Lesstif. Weird!
However, after updating to Edgy I had problems: it wanted to reinstall every time I tried to start my session. It turns out that whomever is creating the install and setup shell scripts for these packages is a horrible shell scripter. Really, I can't remember when I've seen worse. It's one thing to have crappy scripts for internal processes but to release them to customers? If you work for Juniper please find out who is responsible for this and beat them with a clue stick; they're embarrassing your company.
Since in Edgy /bin/sh is really dash, not bash, and these scripts are in no way valid POSIX sh scripts, they break badly... but for no reason other than they're poorly written.
I've attached new versions of these two scripts. Copy them into ~/.juniper_networks/network_connect. I made them immutable with chattr +i, as described elsewhere in this thread, although I'm not sure that's necessary.
Hrmph. I can't attach anything. When I try to and click the upload button FireFox gives me a dialog saying I want to open newattachment.php and what application do I want to use? I tried "firefox" but that opened a blank window. So I guess if you need these, email me or send me a private message.
