- the app is in beta stage and is currently available for Debian based distros only, tested with latest Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, CentOS distros with popular window managers. No other distros have been tested.
- "net-tools" and "libssl1.0-dev" packages are pre-requisites, on Debian-based distros install it by running 'sudo apt-get install net-tools libssl1.0-dev -y', on CentOS: 'yum install net-tools'
- on older versions (for instance Ubuntu < 18.04), also install the package "gksu".
- start it from terminal by running: "pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY /usr/local/vpn.ac/bin/run.sh"
- If the stand-alone package is used, start it from vpn.ac/bin/ subfolder. Closing the terminal after starting the VPN app shouldn't cause the app to exit.
Download: deb file / stand-alone archive
