Hi all, I wrote a little patch that allows the client to run in the user environment, so useful tray icon, no pkexec needed, vpn configs/logs in user's home (thus editable without root permissions) and other little benefits.

Moreover AES key and IV are stored in gnome-keyring, which is a big plus for security.

For this to work without password you need to add this in /etc/sudoers:

youruser ALL=NOPASSWD:SETENV: /usr/bin/openfortigui

The magic here is done by the "-E" sudo argument, which preserves the user's environment in the privileged process.

@macfly it would be great if you would include that to the PKGBUILD If not, here is the code for anyone else interested.

@geekzolanos's option works, however it does not show a tray icon when launched through polkit

Running the generated package fails when i try to connect on a VPN. I made the following workaround to use it without need to run with sudo on terminal: 1. Create a new Polkit Action referencing to 'openforticlient' and the 'auth_admin' rights 2. Modify the 'Exec' field on the .desktop entry line from 'Exec=/usr/bin/openfortigui' to 'Exec=pkexec /usr/bin/openfortigui' After it, i just need to type the password before the app runs and everything goes excelent.

right... if I try to run with sudo, I got weird issue - it does not resolve gateway address... even tough it is resolvable everywhere else, including shell it was started from :) after using IP address I was able to connect, aaand it started working as normal user either 8-O ...

Yes, I've seen that I didn't had time to dig deeper the workaround is to run openfortigui with sudo.

Vpn configuration will be search in root home directory and not in your user home directory.

does not actually connect. debug logs for VPN are empty, even that main log shows that it runs "start vpn" :( actually exactly same problem as with any other distribution except Ubuntu...
