Hi there, I tried to install from pamac. There it shows a conflict with mozilla-vpn-client. Does that matter?

Since last update 2.3.0-1, it continuously stops with message "mozillavpn linuxdaemon needs to be updated or restarted". Is there any known issue?

@DarkThoughts: The Ubuntu build contains the service file.

This is because they use mozillavpn_2.3.0-<distro>.debian.tar.xz and mozillavpn_2.3.0.orig.tar.gz and combine them.

@slabz that is what I did though.

@DarkThoughts you need to run the mozillavpn linuxdaemon as root. If I run it without sudo I see the same error as you, but when I run with sudo, it works.

@slabz that throws a "Background service error" message when I try to toggle the VPN connection.

n00b user here. I don't know how to fix the service but if you just want to get it working, you can run sudo mozillavpn linuxdaemon in one terminal, then mozillavpn in a second terminal and things work.

Anyone know how Mozilla handled this themselves on the official Ubuntu build? Is it broken there as well?

I added the systemd service and try to fix it but it still doesn't work, if anyone finds the fix, push it.

@DarkThoughts The old versions are still in the git history of this package, e.g. git checkout de6d5e2120df will get you 2.1.0.
