Repairing crashing Juniper VPN client on Ubuntu 12.04

In case anyone else is running into issues with their juniper VPN client on Ubuntu, here are two tricks that work for me. First, if it looks like the applet is crashing as it is establishing a connection, it could be because your /etc/resolv.conf is broken or missing. Try following: which details running sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf to restore resolve.conf. There's probably a bug in juniper VPN client that makes it crash if resolv.conf is not to its liking. Another blunt thing I've sometimes had success with is good old rm -rf ~/.juniper_networks, which removes the applets and juniper config information and forces it to redownload it. Hope this helps!
