It must be run with sudo.

I usually modify the desktop file with the following: Exec=gksudo /usr/bin/torguard That way I can still open it through the desktop file.

If you don't want to type your password, just set the sudoers file accordingly.

Hi,

Think you might be missing a decency for qt5-declarative Was helping another user install this today and he could not launch the GUI without it, cuz it require /usr/lib/libQt5QuickWidgets.so

I confirmed he had qt5-websockets dependency installed.

@dramm could you update the package to use the latest official one released by Torguard. I see that the PKGBUILD is different as they are using a wrapper script to ensure when you run Torguard client, it will automatically change the user to root. Hit me up if you need anything.

I'm running under kde and xorg, I have not given wayland a try yet.

I cannot run more tests on the aur package at the moment as I have switched to the official torguard archlinux package which happens to work out of the box for me: https://torguard.net/downloads/torguard-latest-amd64-arch.tar.gz

@insatiable_kin I get the operation not permitted error after some system upgrades, did you try rebooting?

The wrapper didn't work properly on some systems, so instead of modifying it, it is easier to just removed it so that each user can manage permissions his own way. You can add any launch commands you want in your desktop file.

About the qt error, are you running on wayland? I haven't had a chance to test it on wayland. Maybe it needs another dependency?

Just updated to aur 3.98.0-1 still does not work. it launch but refuse to connect with error: ERROR: Cannot ioctl TUNSETIFF tun: Operation not permitted (errno=1)

I do not have sudo installed on my machine for security reasons, also because sudo does not provide any useful feature to me.

When ran with pkexec from cli it fails to start: qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.

Not sure why this aur package take the extra step to remove the provided torguard-wrapper to prevent it from working without sudo.

For autostarting have a lot at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/autostarting

You can set it to run on desktop environment startup or on window manager startup.

Does the autoconnect on start work correctly?

@dramm thank you for the update. Stealth proxy, Stunnel and connecting via port 4443 all work very well now.

Autostart on boot option still does not work for me, but that is minor.

@GrievousMa and @IslamMu

I updated the package.

The problem doesn't seem to be related to permissions but with unrecognized arguments, both by openconnect and openvpn. These parameters no longer work in the newer versions of openconnect and openvpn or torguard team did some modifications on the binaries. Either way I'm not a big fan of using their binaries... It should be working with the standard packages.

Anyways, it should be working.

Here are the outputs from openconnect and openvpn that are causing the errors, in case anybody wants to look into it:

OPENCONNECT STDERR:  "/opt/torguard/bin/openconnect: unrecognized option '--sbg-port-cmd-fd'"
 OPENVPN STDOUT:  "Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in [CMD-LINE]:1: scramble (2.4.7)"
