I am trying to connect to my school's wifi on a fresh install of Debian 10. I have no GUI and no internet at the moment, so just going through command line. I have set up my /etc/wpa_supplicant.config and found my wireless driver and set the link.

Now I am trying to run command wpa_supplicant -B and dhclient but both return not found. They're both downloaded (as evident using whereis command). Do I need to update some paths? I am in root.

    This is a separate problem, so I made a different post for this issue specifically. – user382172 Nov 15 '19 at 18:50
  • Since debian 10, simply escalating to root using su will make some commands unavailable due to the path issues. This may be the issue you are having. Try running them with sudo command or escalate to root via su -, if this is your problem those options should solve it. – john doe Nov 15 '19 at 19:56
  • I do not have sudo, it is not recognized. – user382172 Nov 15 '19 at 20:10
