wifi-menu allows to interactively connect to a wireless network on INTERFACE using a netctl profile. In case no netctl profile is available, one can be generated. If only one wireless interface is available, INTERFACE can be omitted.
wifi-menu is only able to generate netctl profiles for simple network configurations. Profiles for more complex configurations must be set up manually.
If you encounter the below error while running the wifi-menu command:
wifi-menu: command not found
you may need to install the netctl package using the pcaman package manager:
# pacman -S netctl
- -h, –help: Print a short help text and exit.
- -o, –obscure: Show asterisks for the characters of the password and store the password as a hexadecimal pre-shared key.
