For those who are unable to connect via GUI and see empty screen with close button or get unknown error on CLI, try doing pip install jinja2. This fixed my problem

Following up on my previous comment. The issue was on my end. I had a local python installation of an older version of proton-client (v0.5.1), which was being used over the up-to-date, system-wide install provided by this AUR package (v0.6.1). Removing the local version resolved the issue.

Anyone else running into this issue after the update to 1.0.0-2?

Wasted many hours trying to get this to work. Finally figured out that nm-applet must be running in order for it to work. This also needs to run for protonvpn-cli!

Secure core doesn't seem to work. Without it it seems to work fine though. Thanks for packaging this :)

Thank you for preparing the package, but there is a keyring error in the package. To fix this, the asc gpg key file needs to be downloaded and imported from the protonvpn site. then after doing "gpg --import public_key.asc" the installation completes without any problem.
