Please visit the eduroam CAT page for Jacobs University Bremen and download the installation tool.
For this step you need a working Internet connection, please connect via cable or use the "JACOBS" WiFi on campus without login.
Click on the "Download your eduroam installer" button - the web page will automatically detect Linux.
Some browsers warn you about the possibly harmful contents of the file, please "Keep" the file.
Please open a terminal and change to your download directory and start the installer.
Please confirm with "Y".
Enter your username as a combination of your Jacobs username and the domain "@jacobs-university.de". The user "John Doe" would typically have the Jacobs user name "jdoe", hence the eduroam username should be "email@example.com". Please also enter your regular Jacobs password as reply to the password requests.
Note, that the username is NOT your Email address! You email address has a dot in it, your Jacobs username does not!
Please note, that the password typed is visible, so make sure, nobody is looking over your shoulder!
NetworkManager is now set up for eduroam connection.
