Alternative AirVPN client with provider-independent double-hop support (GNU/Linux)

Recommended Posts

More fun ...

 

First, I'm sorry : actually, I now actually see the «Bypass» tab. I can be quite the idiot.

 

But, and this baffles me totally, the program I use to scan («simple-scan») actually does *not* appear in the list of the programs I can «bypass». But another scanning (xsane) appears. When I «bypass» xsane, it does not recognize my scanner.

 

Then I tried this :

cgexec -g net_cls:bypass_qomui simple-scan

It starts the program, but like with xsane through the GUI of qomui, it does not see my scanner.

 

It most probably has nothing with qomui, although I can use my scanner as soon as I quit qomui, (or eddie). Probably some arcane driver problem by HP. But it was a try worth !

 

Thank you !

Qomui tries to parse all .desktop-files, i.e. all entries in your starting menu. But there are some rare cases where parsing those files fails - if you set logging to debug it should reflect this. The current workaround until I fully understand why this happens is to start those applications via console as you did.

Update: The new packages should finally work correctly - I tested on OpenSuse Leap 15.0, Fedora 28 and Ubuntu 18.04.

After update, it wouldn't work. But after uninstall/install, then it works as advertised. After a reboot. And again, after launching the GUI for the first time, no internet connection. So, again, I had to register to airvpn through eddie.

 

Please don't upgrade too often ;-)

another question : what is the «black star» ? What does it do ?

I'll definitively test the updating procedure extensively. Switching to the new packages, might require a new installation, though. After that, updating should be fine.

The star allows you to mark servers as favourites. You can view a list of your current starred servers by clicking on the star in the upper right.

im running manjaro and got your Qomui client from the AUR (arch user repo) and had been using it for the past few weeks and it worked/looked  perfect until today for some reason it doesnt want to let me change/add/remove vpn configs or connect to the ones that are on there (my login info changed and i wasnt able to change it in Qomui where i was able to in the past). i tried to re-install but  still have the same issue. just curious if this is just me or not?

Did you try stopping qomui-service after exiting qomui-gui?  I would expect that qomui-service has to be restarted with your new credentials.

Won't import AirVpn. Sorry.

 

Could you give me more details? Does Qomui crash or is there any error message? It'd be helpful if you could set logging to debug and share the log with me so I can try to understand where it goes wrong.

Can you check if the package python3-cryptography is installed on your system?

 

I can see a file - qomui.service  in the .deb file    but not - qomui.service.dpkg-new'

 

Strange, which distribution are you using? Can you please retry. I've tested the deb on Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10 and Linux Mint as well.

Not installed. Should install it ?

Not so sure this question is for me, but anyhow : I run SolydX (based on Debian Stretch). And I used to run qomui, unistalled it, and tried to re-install (on a brand new system)

Installed python3-cryptography, problem solved ! Maybe in the dependencies ?

Yes, you're right. The dependency was actually missing from the deb-package. It's fixed now. Thank you!

 

@pjnsmb: what distribution are you using? Could you try using the DEB directly, i.e. install via gdebi?

Great job !

 

1) your procedure to import the key doesn't work

2) I override that, and install «new» .deb ,and I get new dependencies !!!!! (cgroup-tools, cgroupfs-mount, and libcgroup1) For THE SAME VERSION !!!!! How iS  that possible ! The progamme 5 minutes earlier worked without those dependencies !

3) qomui won't connect to any airvpn server !

1) your procedure to import the key doesn't work

 

I'll look into it, I don't quite understand yet why Qomui would import the servers but not the keys - the download should fail altogether in that case. But that's why Qomui can't connect to any OpenVPN server. Do the respective directories and files such as '/usr/share/qomui/certs/ca.crt' actually exist on your machine?

 

2) I override that, and install «new» .deb ,and I get new dependencies !!!!! (cgroup-tools, cgroupfs-mount, and libcgroup1) For THE SAME VERSION !!!!! How iS  that possible ! The progamme 5 minutes earlier worked without those dependencies !

 

Those dependencies are optional - they are only needed if you want to you use "bypass". But depending on whether you are installing from the deb directly or adding the repository via apt recommended dependencies are automatically installed or not.

 

I think I'll stay with eddie for a while, maybe ...

 

I'm sorry that Qomui doesn't work for you (yet).

@corrado : I am using siduction -debian unstable and I have tried both methods without success and the same error message.

 

Sorry for the late answer: You could try the following:

sudo apt purge qomui 
sudo apt clean
sudo apt update
sudo apt install qomui

 

Alternative, download the release from github directly, install all dependencies manually and run:

 

python3 setup.py install qomui-0.8.0.tar.gz
