If you want to use old pulse-secure client 9.1r9, please download the following package.

The rewritten pulse-secure client requires a service called 'pulsesecure'. Please enable and start the service before running the client.

You need to rebuild webkitgtk if you got ICU related errors.

Please update download URL (source_x86_64) to the official download URL from the Pulse Secure website.

For the current version, that would be:


(md5sums_x86_64 stays the same.)

Here is how you can see that the above is actually the official URL:

  2. Click FREE TRIAL ->
  3. Click → Looking for Pulse Client to download? -> -> redirects to (Apparently, Ivanti bought Pulse Secure in 2020)
  4. Fill in the form with something and Submit -> redirects to
  5. Copy URL from relevant download button.

Shortcut for getting download URL:s later, without web browser or forms:

curl -s | awk -F '"' '/{print $4}'

@tchung What does this fix?

tchung commented on 2021-06-10 01:15

In my case (Manjaro 21 Gnome), I had to:

$ pkill pulseUI
$ sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/pulsesecure/pulse
$ sudo trust extract-compat
$ sudo mkdir -p /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/openssl
$ sudo ln -s /etc/ca-certificates/extracted/ /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/openssl/
$ systemctl restart pulsesecure.service

Am I correct in assuming that updating this package means "google search some random site that allows public downloads?" If so, then appears to have the latest version. (

If you have a DNS service enabled (such as systemd-resolvd) the VPN won't work: it'll claim to be connected, but won't route traffic properly. You will need to use NetworkManager's builtin DNS resolver instead. If you're using a DNS service currently, to switch back you'll need to not only disable the service but also remove /etc/resolv.conf. NetworkManager will see the symlink in /etc/resolv.conf and still think you're using a separate DNS service otherwise.

Hi @Syzygianinfern0,

I left a comment here:

Based on strace run, seems like there's a bug in pulse-secure 9.1r11.0.

Syzygianinfern0 commented on 2021-04-25 14:59

The VPN works fine but after a few minutes of connection, it disconnects and the VPN profile that was added is deleted as well. Are there any logs that I can share to debug this issue? Or is it a known issue?

Installed pulse-secure9.1r11, and followed the setup instructions as mentioned by @andrea.denisse and @thecrow. But, still have issues with PulseUI, keeps refreshing the login screen where it asks for the second factor auth. Doesn't go forward to host checking and establishing VPN.

Wondering what is the issue with Pulse UI, keeps refreshing the login page! rebuilding webkitgtk did not help solve the problem. What I'm missing here?
