AirVPN not starting Automatically when "Connect at Startup" is ticked - Ubuntu 17.04

Recommended Posts

I am using AirVPN (Version 2.12.14 Linux 64) installed on Ubuntu 17.04 (64 Bit).


In the AirVPN General Preferences menu, I have "Connect at startup" ticked, and "Activate Network Lock at startup" ticked.


When the system is started no AirVPN processes are started, and none are started automatically at login.


Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong ?


Many thanks,

Please make sure to run Eddie in some of your init scripts. You can also consider to run it in "command line mode". "Connect at startup" is an option that tells Eddie to connect when it starts up.


For command line mode please see instructions here:



and type (in a terminal) "airvpn -cli -help" to print the manual of your version.


Kind regards

Hello, I wanted airvpn to automatically start ubunyu 16.04. In fact just go into applications at startup and simply add airvpn in name and airvpn in command.
