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.

My father also uses manjaro and this package. I did not test with this last update though. Maybe try an older version?

Also, sometimes after system updates I need to reboot in order to make torguard work properly.

You could also try the binaries they provide for stunnel.

Torguard has an Arch installation package you can download directly from their website. Current version is 3.92.0. Upstream URL should be

I had to use Exec=/usr/bin/pkexec /opt/torguard/bin/torguard or as you suggest: Exec=pkexec /opt/torguard/bin/torguard. pkexec would not work for me with the torguard link in /usr/bin.

dramm commented on 2018-11-05 11:57

If pkexec is in your PATH (and it should) you don't need /usr/bin/pkexec, just pkexec

My system has pkexec installed and I never really thought much about what was going on behind the scenes. Gparted does something similar with pkexec when I start it up as an ordinary user.

Perhaps some instructions would be useful for new users installing torguard from the AUR repository versus using the Arch Linux package directly from TorGuard.

Thanks for the suggestion. For my system, Exec=/usr/bin/pkexec /usr/bin/torguard will probably work. I'm not sure if gksudo and kdesudo are around anymore.

I removed the sudoers file that comes with the original package and since that wrapper never worked in my machines (I wrongly assumed that it also didn't work for everybody else) I also removed it. I won't have time to work on this until the next weekend. You can, however, simply edit the torguard.desktop file changing the Exec line to something like: Exec=gksudo /usr/bin/torguard

AFAICT all the wrapper was supposed to do was identify if you use gksudo, kdesudo or pkexec and call it, so by modifying the desktop file you should get the same behaviour. If you don't want to type your password every time you can then add a rule, probably in sudoers.d
