Eddie on openSUSE Linux Leap 15 or Tumbleweed

Recommended Posts

I have an Eddie closing problem on Leap 15 and before that also on Tumbleweed.
Today completely new installation done, but the problem remains.
If I forget about the vpn connection and then want to close Eddie, Eddie will stay open, it depends on the shutdown.
This morning (Tumbleweed) I could no longer get an internet connection after restarting, completely blocked.
Have no idea if it is in openSUSE or in Eddie, it is annoying.
Are you curious about other openSUSE users?

 

Last line off logfile:

 

! 2018.07.25 13:37:56 - Session terminated.
. 2018.07.25 13:38:01 - Shutdown in progress
 

 

edit 18:30;

 

back to version 2.13.6 of Eddie.
at the moment it seems that this version does not have the closing problem of Eddie!
will look further in the coming days to see if it is true.

With Eddie version 2.13.6 no more problem.
So it seems that all versions afterwards have a problem with shutdown.
I will stay with Eddie 2.13.6 for the time being, and hope that the bug in the later versions, can be solved.

Yes, same to me!

(Just about to open a new thread, than saw this.)

 

Used on openSUSE Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.

 

Eddie 2.15.2 was initially installed in a normal user account (without root privileges) without error messages (first I imported the maintainer key for validating signature). Completely new openSUSE installation.
Eddie starts and works so far.
But as soon as you try to quit the program by clicking on the X, the program partially freezes. It cannot close and does not continue to react if you still have an active connection at this time, it remains active and can no longer be disconnected. On the left side I can still navigate through the menu entries. Well, Eddie's obviously not completely frozen.
It may work to close the program the very first time, but then not any more.

 

I had also logged in to openSUSE as root, the error did not occur with Eddie!

 

If I have a look to "logs", and then try to close Eddie, I can see "Shutdown in progress" as the last log entry - but the shutdown does not take place.

 

 

Another thing is, how can I get Eddie to reconnect to the last connected server after waking up from standby or hibernation?
Example: In my list of recommended servers I have a Swiss server and a Dutch one. Now I deliberately connect to the Swiss server. After waking up from standby, however, Eddie now decides that the Dutch server is more recommendable and automatically connects me to it.
The check mark "reconnect to last server at start" is set.

Are you logged in as root? That's the way it worked for me. But not as a user with limited rights.

 

But anyway, I might try my luck with Manjaro!

This happens sometimes with me. Removing /usr/bin from the .desktop file seems to make it close? It makes no sense but it could be it.

 

Part of  the problem is that Eddie has to be run as root, which isn't recommended and is completely unsupported by wayland. Supposedly they're working on making it so that there's two processes like how the Mullvad does it, where there's the man GUI process not run as root, and then another run ran via SystemD that manages the connections.

I don't see a .desktop file?

Can you tell me more?

Thanks.

Is there any indication as to when this might be implemented? I like AirVPN, but the client behaviour in OpenSUSE is not the best at the moment.
