ALTERNATE INSTALL METHOD FOR 64-BIT SYSTEMS: Installation will still work via the AUR, however there is now an "official" installable package for 64-bit Arch systems available on the AirVPN website: https://airvpn.org/linux/

Install with the following command: sudo pacman -U "/path/to/file/eddie-ui_(version.number)_linux_x64_arch.tar.xz"

Thanks for those links uncle.

I had already installed kdesudo as I was fed up of entering my root password each time (it's very long). Mono seems to use kdesudo now, instead of what it was using before, which required the root password.

Maybe this is why I've not experienced this particular issue yet.

Another short thread over at the AirVPN forums with a response from a staff member, sounds like they know about the problem and are working on a solution: https://airvpn.org/topic/16299-mono-upgrade-to-result-in-removal-of-airvpn-client-under-debian-unstable/

There is a thread over at the AirVPN forums discussing this, no solutions yet, but it does appear to be a problem with the new mono causing AirVPN to not be able to elevate itself to admin privileges, which is why it will only work using "sudo". https://airvpn.org/topic/16228-client-broken-in-opensuse-tumbleweed-after-update/?hl=%2Bmono+%2Blinux

Is it defiantly the mono package causing the problem? I only have mono-4.2.1.102-1 installed and have no problem running the client.

I just tried upgrading to mono 4.2.1 and as expected it didn't work for me, either. Until this problem is resolved, I have changed the mono dependency to less than or equal to 4.0.5.1.

Same issue with mono. I had 4.2.1 and the client would ask for PW and disapear. sudo cli "worked" but had other issues. I used "downgrader" and did 'downgrader -l mono' choose the default mono-4.0.4.1-1, and the client gui works perfectly now! I hope Air fixes this soon. Thanks.

@Revy
I had the exact same problem while updating the system. Indeed mono 4.2.1 seems to be causing the problem. Reverting back to 4.0.4.1 seems to be working.

The client has stopped running for me after a recent pacman update.

I looked into it and it seemed that it was the latest mono update (4.2.1) that is causing this problem. I am not 100% sure if this is the case, although there were only a few packages that were upgraded, and mono was the only one related.

Running the client from terminal as sudo still works, although it's not too convenient.

After going back and installing the older mono package, it seems to run normal again.

xiuhtecuhtli, I don't think it would be possible to add an armv7h version of this package, because airvpn does not provide any pre-compiled binaries for that architecture. you may be able to build it yourself from source, here are some instructions on the airvpn forum: https://airvpn.org/topic/12760-how-can-i-compile-the-source-code/

xiuhtecuhtli commented on 2015-10-01 07:39

any chance this could be added for the armv7h architecture as well?
