Sorry if this is a dumb question but being new to Linux, I have to ask it...

I am running an Ubuntu VPS. I am happy to start Eddie via CLI only as I won't need access to GUI desktop environment much. If I install Eddie via CLI, will that install the Eddie GUI as well or are they two separate things? thanks

I have managed to install Eddie CLI, eventually! I used the .deb package.
I don't know how to set it up with a preferred server, my login details etc. Am I right in thinking I can download a file from the config generator (as I would for vanilla openvpn) and my Eddie installation will use whatever settings are in that file?
If so, please could someone tell me which folder the config file should be put in after I download it.
Thanks

eddie-ui is the package, it installs an eddie-ui binary and you can call the cli version with the --cli option to eddie-ui, as demonstrated in one of your other threads:

$ eddie-ui --cli

While Eddie supports parsing .ovpn config files, it's first and foremost a convenient way to access AirVPN services directly, so no ovpn file is needed. Eddie uses the settings in its own config file ~/.config/Eddie/default.profile. They're primarily set from the GUI Preferences, not sure if setting the CLI options change them in that file as well. The CLI options are detailed in the manual, man eddie-ui for more info.

 I read "man eddie-ui" and it's a bit beyond me due to lack of linux understanding. Can you please tell me something.... if I download linux GUI version of Eddie, am I right in thinking I will then able to issue commands from CLI if needed, so i have the choice of GUI or CLI? If so, that's way easier for me and I can use the GUI to set up my preferred servers etc, then just use the CLI command to connect when needed.
Thanks
