@joelostblom They were. Just unpinned the comment. This is the new version and is not deprecated. Thanks!

@ddnomad Just checking if the comments about the deprecation were inherited from the old version of the AUR package since this appears to be the new protonvpn-cli-ng version, not the deprecated protonvpn-cli version.

@jogdand Pinned deprecation warning here in comments + updated package description to direct people to NG package.

Do not think I should remove this package completely though, as ProtonVPN developers themselves decided to keep protonvpn-cli as is and name a new version protonvpn-cli-ng, which is consistent with how both AUR packages are currently named.

Thank you for pinging me to update the package though :) Merry Christmas!

Please note that this package is considered deprecated by ProtonVPN developers as new Python version of a client was released.

@ddnomad, Can we replace this by 'ng' version. OR atleast, add the deprecation info in description.

Thanks for maintaining. I feel this PKGBUILD is more of a -git style development package, so I believe you should point the source to the tarball releases at and remove git from the makedepends.

Working on that now. Just added python-pythondialog and python-setuptools. Thank you for the help.

You may want to add a few more dependencies to this PKGBUILD. I could see three external python libraries imported:

python-docopt python-pythondialog python-requests

These should be added to the "depends" array in the PKGBUILD.

Very bad idea on my part. Updated to replace:

sudo pip3 install .


python install --optimize=1 --root="$pkgdir"

I had used the former as the official installation instructions from the source repository use that.

The PKGBUILD contains the line:

sudo pip3 install .

That can't be right?? What is going on here?
