Running Eddie as a service on a Raspberry Pi (osmc)

Recommended Posts

I'm successfully running the eddie client with the following command:
sudo /home/osmc/airvpn/eddie-cli -connect -netlock

However, I want to configure it to run as a service, as soon as the network interface is up. I've created /lib/systemd/system/airvpn.service with the following contents:

 

[Unit] 
Description = AirVPN Client (Eddie)
After = network.target
[Service] 
Type = simple
User = root
ExecStart = /home/osmc/airvpn/eddie-cli -connect -netlock
Restart = always
[Install]
WantedBy = multi-user.target

But when I start the service, it doesn't run and I get the following from sudo journalctl -u airvpn

eddie-cli[7255]: [ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.DllNotFoundException: Lib.Platform.Linux.Native.so

Any ideas?

Hi there, are you new to AirVPN? Many of your questions are already answered in this guide. (<----Temporarily broken). You may also read the Eddie Android FAQ.
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.

Yes,

 

I was missing the WorkingDirectory:

[Unit] 
Description = AirVPN Client (Eddie)
After = network.target
[Service] 
Type = simple
User = root
WorkingDirectory = /home/osmc/airvpn/
ExecStart = /home/osmc/airvpn/eddie-cli -connect -netlock
Restart = always
[Install]
WantedBy = multi-user.target

Then

 

 

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable airvpn.service
sudo systemctl start airvpn.service
 

and all done...
