@yochananmarqos I have built the package again and have received the same error. The exact error is: 'install: cannot stat '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/mullvad-vpn.png': No such file or directory'. I can tell that this means that I am not getting the icons for the application but cannot seem to figure out why.

Edit: Looking at the changes in the PKGBUILD I can see there are some changes in the way the icons are added, I am guessing there is a fault in the change.

@yochananmarqos Sudo caused the build to fail very early on, I will do another clean install in an attempt to retrieve the exact error.

@tylerwolf: What failed to execute? What's the exact error?

You can't use makepkg with sudo. Don't try it.

Just tried a clean build and got 'makepkg --force' failed to execute. I have already added all of the PGP keys. Will try as sudo and see if this fixes the issue.

@diazkun: It happened to me once, but rebuilding (clean) resolved it. The same has resolved it for everyone else that has reported it. I'm not sure what causes it.

@cvmd: Did you add David Lönnhager's key?

cvmd commented on 2020-02-24 16:49

makepkg fails as the signature for mullvad-app-binaries cannot be verified. anyone solved a similar issue? (already tried following the instructions from @yochananmarqos and others with no luck)

EDIT: @yochananmarqos adding David L's key worked, thanks

@yochananmarqos it was my first time installing and building, no previous thing existed.

Comparing the generated package and installed files under /opt to the released deb package it seems to be missing the huge binary file "mullvad-gui".

The shell script there seems to just loop over itself, looking at htop the command keeps expading with --no-sandbox argument.


I've rebuilt again, exact same way as I did before and this time the "mulvad-gui" binary with ~110mb was properly generated. This is very weird, since both were clean, fresh builds. There must be somekind of weird thing going on. All compilation passed, the tests and checks also passed, but at the end the binary was not there.

@diazjun: Do a clean build.

I just installed, and I'm getting the same problem as written here -

Basically trying to launch form menu says: "Could not find the program /opt/Mullvad VPN/mullvad-vpn'".

Trying to execute the binary on the console just hangs and says nothing at all.

@serxxx: See Go package guidelines.
