You don't need to provide the desktop and service file separately, they're included:

    # Systemd service
    sed -i 's/Mullvad\x20VPN/mullvad-vpn/g' "opt/Mullvad VPN/resources/mullvad-daemon.service"
    install -Dm644 "opt/Mullvad VPN/resources/mullvad-daemon.service" \

    # Desktop Entry
    sed -i 's/Mullvad VPN/mullvad-vpn/g' \
    install -Dm644 "usr/share/applications/${pkgname}.desktop" \

The Mullvad developers provide a GPG signature of the RPM package. I'd like to suggest to use this for verification. This makes it necessary to import Mullvad's GPG key once but increases security.

It could look like this:

(I adopted this from the AUR package of the Tor Browser.)

Unable to update:

curl: (56) OpenSSL SSL_read: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL, errno 104 ==> FEHLER: Fehler beim Download von Breche ab...

EDIT: Nevermind, update is working again!

I use KDE, and when I am running this mullvad-vpn app, it causes KDE to freak out. Among other things, suspend no longer works, and when I try to use the start menu the GUI freezes, although I can still interact with already-open windows.

Anybody else experience issues like this? I've tried looking in the usual log locations but nothing looks odd.

The app itself works great- it just hoses the rest of my system. :(

I created a patch for updating to the newer 2019.3 version of mullvad-vpn:

The mullvad-vpn GUI is currently broken for me (probably due to version mismatch), use the mullvad command for now

More serious issue; with the old app sharing the tunneled connection over wifi was easy. Now because of the mullvad app clients can't connect anymore. I have 'Local network sharing' enabled of course. The ip addresses simply aren't released to clients. As soon as I close the app and the daemon everything works fine.. I tried this with NetworkManager as well as create_ap. Anyone know a solution?

Works great! Thanks for putting this together.

@Sebversive Works fine for me.

Horrible program, so heavy. Finally got it to work. The app window doesn't show up if the daemon is running. Only if I start the gui first and then the daemon.
