Wpa supplicant.conf not working

Post by mrnato » Sat Jun 22, 2019 9:56 pm

Hey! Sorry it's been a long time I have last posted. I was setting up the wifi for my mintypi v3 and opened wpasupplicant.conf in visual studio code and it gives the error of "This file was not displayed in the editor because it is either binary or uses unsupported text encoding." Has anyone else had this issue? How can I solve it?

Just create a new file in Root and edit in Notepad.



ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


Supply your details and save.

Be sure to remove the .txt extension before you boot the system else it wont ingest it.
