--> ALWAYS DO A CLEAN BUILD <--

This package will verify the signature of the git tag / commit. Developer keys are available here and instructions are here. See the PKGBUILD to determine which developer key you need.

@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.

@snarfies You need to restart the service after updating:

systemctl restart mullvad-daemon

Okay, 2018.5-3 put the menu entry back, thank you. Now the app says "Inconsistent internal version information, please restart the app." Internet connection is dead until the app is closed.

This new build of Mullvad (2018.5-2) has removed my entry form XFCE and replaced it with... nothing. I have no menu entry anymore. Boo.

Doesn't need to conflict with mullvad-vpn-old anymore as that package no longer exists.

@oibind That's a great idea. I've implemented it in my PKGBUILD.

should really be validating the signature from mullvad

Thanks for this!

The package should be called mullvad-vpn-bin as the source is a prebuilt binary package.

The desktop file is no longer needed, it's in the source package.

rpmextract is not needed; the .rpm is extracted automatically.

To add messages to display after installing/upgrading, they should be in an .install file like this: https://github.com/yochananmarqos/pkgbuilds/blob/master/mullvad-vpn/mullvad-vpn.install
