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.

Version v3.86.1 is out. Are there any plans for update?

Just pushed v0.3.76. OpenVPN works in this version.

@glebtv - this package is not missing the OpenVPN binary. I just checked /opt/torguard/bin/ and it's right there.

$ ls /opt/torguard/bin/
build.conf openvpn_v2_4 torguard
openconnect qt.conf torguard-wrapper
openvpn_v2_3 ss-local vpnc-script

this package seems to be missing the bundled openvpn binary which is present in the package downloaded from torguard.

From app debug log:
Starting "/opt/torguard/bin/openvpn_v2_3" with arguments (...)

@deemel I had the same problem as you. Reinstalling from the AUR package did not help (pacaur -S torguard), though I did not clear cache before doing that. However, I downloaded the arch package from, extracted, ran makepkg, then installed the package manually and it worked. Same version as here, so I don't know why this did not work.

@deemel - I see the same error as you but I am able to establish a connection via OpenConnect. This is not an issue with the package, it is an issue with the TorGuard application. Please reach out to them for assistance. I will gladly update the package when they release a fix.

Since the last update on 2017-11-12 it's no longer possible to establish a connection. On starting torguard from the console there's an error about an missing log option

[dml@alpha ~]$ torguard

Thanks for the feedback. I just pushed v0.3.69. For the next version, I'll use the -arch version.

I agree with erylflynn on using the arch version. Also, this package has been out-of-date for at least a month now.

I was manually packaging and installing this and found that it wanted to update now out of the AUR. When it updated it removed the desktop entry for my application menu. This might need an install file.

May I also suggest using the arch version? Below is the link for the Arch Linux package from Torguard. For me simply drop the pkgbuild, and source file in a directory. Run makepkg and then install. It might work better.
