XFCE wireless login required.

I have this armhf XFCE Kali build. It's just pretty buggy. I have to log in to wireless every time I boot the thing up. I want to have it headless and just SSH of VNC into it. But I can't do that because the wireless just doesn't want to log in automatically. It's on an OrangePi Plus which I thought was going to really cool because has a SATA port and onboard EMMC but it's not super cool because the thing is not well supported.

I don't really know if this is an XFCE issue or a Linux issue or a build issue. I thinking it's a build issue. I don't want to spend 4 hours on a live build but I probably will. I'm still in denial. Everything works perfectly.

i tried to document all my steps, i have been threw all of this... but im a little rusty...

i like to killall networking services, ifup, networking, network-manager...

cat /etc/network/interfaces

#AWUS036nha bgn 2.4gh supports master mode...
#internet source
auto wlan2
iface wlan2 inet static
address 192.168.0.87
gateway 192.168.0.1
ntmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255

you will want to test your config, make sure its working properly...

cat myqwest3957.conf

network={
	ssid="myqwest3957"
	scan_ssid=1
	psk="somepassword"
	proto=RSN
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
	pairwise=CCMP TKIP
	group=TKIP
}

then i add 2 lines to my /etc/rc.local... may have to stall this part so all the drivers have a chance to load.

sleep 10

wpa_supplicant -Dnl80211 -iwlan2 -cmyqwest3957.conf -B&

dhclient wlan2

OK this is a start. What directory are these connections stored in? I think this is part of the issue. I will save the network connection then it will get deleted.

Also it would be pretty sweet to exploit the clients and steal the wifis. It's a lot less work than cracking the wifis.

	ssid="myqwest3957"
	scan_ssid=1
	psk="somepassword"
	proto=RSN

	group=TKIP
}

OK I did all of that. It's still not working. I've spent like 7 hours troubleshooting this thing and about 0 hours actually using it. Plus the cost of the the machine. Net loss. It's time to just take this thing out and shoot it. At least I'll get some enjoyment out that.

Less than a month, if memory serves. I hope this is not how you confront all your challenges.

Nah dude. I did it just to be a smart ass more than anything. I figure I'll put up a demolition compilation video for keks. First I need to break a few more things.

Wait there's an idea for a Youtube channel. Just breaking shit all the time.
