     4To allow a normal user account to control the wpa_supplicant and interact with it through a frontend like wpa_gui http://hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant/wpa_gui.html to query status, change config, trigger events, request interactive user input and the like, add the lines: 
     5 
     6 ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant     # wpa_supplicant keep its process ID number here 
     7 ctrl_interface_group=wheel                 # all users of the given group (ie:  `wheel') can contact the WPA supplicant 
     8 
     9to the '''/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf''' above so that it reads: 
     10{{{ 
     11ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant     # wpa_supplicant keep its process ID number here 
     12ctrl_interface_group=wheel                 # all users of the given group (ie:  `wheel') can contact the WPA supplicant 
     13 
     14network={ 
     15ssid="My_WPA_Protected_AP_ESSID" 
     16key_mgmt=WPA-PSK 
     17proto=WPA 
     18psk=701459761a3d17c5ddead0deafbeeffeedbadf00dc659db31e2e3d36f00a12b1 
     19} 
     20 }}} 
     21 
     22To use wpa_gui, you will also need to make '''make_gui''', then copy '''wpa_gui''' to '''/usr/local/bin'''.  The user must be in the ctrl_interface_group.
