Eddie 2.19.7 + Hummingbird 1.1.1 / Can not make it work in OSX High Sierra

Recommended Posts

Hello!
First of all I'm not a "techie" guy, so sorry in advance if I ask something trivial or did something wrong.
I use OSX High Sierra (10.13.6). The situation is that yesterday I updated to the latest version of Eddie (2.19.7)  with the intention of trying Hummingbird (1.1.1) which is listed as being supported on this OS. No matter what I do, the checkbox in Eddie's preferences is always grayed out. So... what I did is as follows:
- First I replaced the old Eddie with the new one. (As I saw that Hummingbird was inside the application bundle, I though that I did not need to install Hummingbird separately) Then I downloaded a configuration .ovpn file and put it in User/Documents folder and chose it from the preferences (understanding that the file chooser was for this file). Result, greyed out. (I started and quitted Eddie in between of all the things I tried below)
- Second I tried installing Hummingbird in usr/bin by moving it there. (Just a plain drag and drop of the downloaded Hummingbird 1.1.1) Result, greyed out. Then I chose again the configuration .ovpn file, same result.
- Third I tried choosing in preferences, instead of the configuration .ovpn file, the Hummingbird file (with the belief that maybe that chooser was not for the configuration file, but the location of Hummingbird itself). Result, greyed out.
- Forth, I stopped and came to the forum to see if there was any case similar to mine. Result, no luck.
- Fifth, I'm writing this asking for some help or guidance. If anyone can show me where was my mistake, or how to do it well, I'll really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

Hello!

Can you please run Hummingbird directly, without Eddie? It must run fine in macOS High Sierra Please keep us posted.

Kind regards

Hello!
I have tested Hummingbird 1.1.1 directly on macOS High Sierra (quite rapidly: start it and connected ok, browse a little bit, stopped it, reconnect, and write this answer ;·)
and it worked ok.
So... is there something that I'm missing in order to run Hummingbird from Eddie?
Sorry to bother, but I would prefer to use Hummingbird within Eddie if there is a chance, as I'm not a "technical guy". I'm open to do more tests or report back with any useful information, but for the moment I'm stuck here.
Any help will be appreciate it.
Thanks!

Hello!

Sure, that test was essential to understand whether the problem was Eddie-specific or involved Hummingbird, it did not imply that we want you to renounce to Eddie.

Now that we know that Hummingbird runs just fine, we know that the problem is Eddie-specific and we can investigate with the help of Eddie's developer. First of all, please make sure that Hummingbird belongs to root. Eddie will refuse to run with root privileges a binary file that does not belong to root, and rightly so: it's an important security feature to prevent some kind of attacks aimed at escalating privileges and taking machine control when the attacker can not gain root privileges in the first attack phase.

In order to change ownership of Humminbird, open a terminal and issue the following command:
sudo chown root /usr/bin/hummingbird

The above command will assign Hummingbird to superuser ("root") ownership. We mention /usr/bin because you wrote that you have moved Hummingbird there, but of course enter the correct path if you moved it again.

Then re-start Eddie and check whether "Use Hummingbird" is still grayed out or not.

Kind regards

Hello!
Thanks for the reply and suggestion.
I followed your instructions and unfortunately Eddie continues to show "Use Hummingbird" as grayed out.
It seems that the problem relies on Eddie. I'm able to provide any information or do any test in order to make it work, with the hope that there is a solution and might help other users as well.
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards.

Hello!

OK. First of all, can you please make sure that Hummingbird can run successfully? Please run it from a terminal, do not even launch Eddie. Hummingbird documentation and manual: https://airvpn.org/hummingbird/readme/

Let's check binary file ownership too, just in case: please provide us with the output of (when you are in the correct directory):
ls -l hummingbird

Kind regards

Hello!
I can run Hummingbird 1.1.1 alone via the Terminal. (below I'll copy the output of the terminal).

ls -l hummingbird gives:
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root  admin  9929040 Jan 11 12:52 hummingbird

I'm running it from usr/local/bin

This is the output of Hummingbird when connects (it is long and edited, taking out personal references, hoping it helps):

Hello!
I've trying to make it work without success. I run out of ideas. Does anybody knows what else can I try in order to make Hummingbird run from Eddie in OS X High Sierra?
I have no problems in trying out new solutions that might help other users, that may also be in the same situation.
Wished I could bring better news but I'm stuck here. Any help will be appreciate it.

Hello!

We are informing Eddie developer because it looks like an Eddie related problem, as you can run Hummingbird perfectly on its own.

Kind regards

Hello!
Thanks for the reply and for informing the developer. Hope that it can be sorted out.
If there is something I can test or help in the meantime just let me know.

@Searching

Hello!

Please open a ticket and send us a system report generated by Eddie: click "Log" tab, click the LIFE BELT icon, click the "copy all" icon and paste into your message. The system report should provide us with a better insight.

Kind regards
