ANSWERED Ok, I compiled the source code, now what?

Recommended Posts

I've followed the instructions for building the AirVPN client here, and it seems to run just fine. The downloaded copy doesn't seem to like the newer version of Mono I'm running, but building it on my machine seems to work ok when I run it (so far).

 

How do I make a .deb package or otherwise install it? I've tried the Tools|Build Package, but that gets me a tar.gz file which I'm really not sure about, and I'm also unsure as to exactly which segments I need to select anyway.

After building, run the project "Deploy" to generate .deb files (will be placed in /repository/ directory).

Why you need to compile and rebuild? You have special needs (like patch) or error with standard AirVPN files ?

The UI keeps freezing when I click on a checkbox or a button in a dialog box when I use the portable version, and trying to install the .deb file leaves apt-get complaining about a broken package (airvpn wants a lower Mono version that I'm using).

I don't get a .deb file when I run the "Deploy" item (though I do get "mono" and "portable" tarballs). Here's the results I do get:

It does appear to have given me a working portable version, so I can reliably connect again, at least.

 

It would be nice to have a menu item, though.

To get a menu item for your compiled portable version, create a text file called AirVPN.desktop and place it in

~/.local/share/applications/

or:

/usr/share/applications/

 

Here are the contents of AirVPN.desktop as it is found in the Git repo (resources/debian/usr/share/applications/AirVPN.desktop)

 

[Desktop Entry]
Name=AirVPN
Comment=AirVPN
Exec=/usr/bin/airvpn
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/AirVPN.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;Network
 

You would only need to change Exec= and Icon= to your custom paths.

The icon AirVPN.png can also be found in your cloned Git repo, resources/debian/usr/share/pixmaps/AirVPN.png
