Errors installing client on TAILS

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am trying to install the client on TAILS. I downloaded the 64-bit .deb package and tried this command to install it:

 

sudo dpkg -i airvpn_linux_x64_debian.deb

 

Here is the result:

 

Selecting previously unselected package airvpn.

Unpacking airvpn (2.10) ...

I can't find a detailed guide to installing on TAILS, can you help me?

 

Thank you.

You should install 2.11 on Tails, if your Tails version is >2.0 (Debian 8 based)

 

Yes, I'm using Tails 2.5 But where can I find AirVPN client 2.11? I only see 2.10 or earlier on the download page.

Dependencies missing.

 

if :

 

sudo dpkg -i airvpn_linux_x64_debian.deb

 

fails, then run :

sudo apt-get -f install

to install the dependencies, then :

 

sudo dpkg -i airvpn_linux_x64_debian.deb

 

It should be ok.

Hello!

 

It's under Other Versions>Experimental.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

I have a question on this: I installed it (experimental version) on Tails but after the password prompt, the client doesn't start?

I tried all the various methods to get it installed in Tails and none seemed to work until I tried this one.

apt-get -f install ./eddie-ui_2.18.9_linux_x64_debian.deb

followed by:

dpkg -i ./eddie-ui_2.18.9_linux_x64_debian.deb

It even placed a menu item under Applications>Internet.

Sadly, it doesn't run correctly.  If started from the command line, there are a couple pages of exception errors, mostly "at System.Windows.Forms.............

Bummer.

The main error is "connection refused". Maybe it's because apps that are not on a X.org whitelist are automatically forbidden to show GUI windows? Would make sense for Tails, but I don't know myself. :)

Thanks.  Fixed the disconnect problem.  Now I have another:
.....

_apt is the APT user in all Debian-like distros. It's got write access to /var/lib/apt/ and /var/cache/apt/ in normal conditions, and nowhere else. /var/cache/apt/archives/ is where apt, in normal conditions, is downloading packages to, by the way, so something, maybe the config of Tails itself, makes apt download packages as user amnesia into its home, logically unreachable for _apt. Or you did something. ;) You can fix this by moving the package to /var/cache/apt/archives, or allowing others to read /home/amnesia and the file:

$ sudo chmod o+r /home/amnesia "/home/amnesia/Persistent/Tor Browser/eddie-ui_2.18.9_linux_x64_debian.deb"
