@Taijian: Thanks, good catch.

Following up on my earlier post about dependencies: After some experimenting it seems that mullvad does not necessarily need 'libappindicator-gtk2' - which makes sense, because it also depends on gtk3 not gtk2. Apparently 'libappindicator-gtk3' will also do just fine displaying the tray icon.

@Taijian: I removed gconf. gsettings-desktop-schemas is covered by gtk3.

Just as a PSA/heads-up: Being annoyed at having to install gconf (which is heavily outdated and unmaintained) just to run mullvad, I've tried just removing it again. Voilá: As long as gsettings-desktop-schemas (which is the replacement for gconf) is installed, it seems as though mullvad will still run and work fine.

So, maybe try this out for yourself and switch the dependency to something that is supported.

UPDATE: I actually asked about this on the mullvad github and they clarified that the deb/rpm releases do not depend on gconf2. So that dependency should probably be removed.

No it won't. Mullvad provides sources at - Please modify this PKGBUILD to build from source, or disown it so that someone else may do so.

PSA: This package will be now called mullvad-vpn-bin as soon as the merge request is accepted

The GUI doesn't work properly. I have to execute systemctl restart mullvad-daemon in terminal to establish a connection to the servers. Every time I reboot the computer I have to do this again.

@andykluger: Feel free to write a PKGBUILD that builds from source and share it with the rest of the class. ;)

Currently this installs binary blobs, which is not at all appropriate for an AUR package that doesn't end in '-bin'. Please either rename this package so it's no longer deceptive, or have it build from source as is expected. Thank you for packaging this!

With v2019.9, a new symlink needs to be added to match upstream:

    ln -s "/opt/$pkgname/resources/mullvad-problem-report" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/mullvad-problem-report"
