    I don't have a link to the original instructions, but I saved them as a document for future reference.  Here they are:


    Sorry I need to remove your instructions, because they are based on tests, not valid anymore and create only confusion.
    The only and right method is by using Eddie Preferences checkbox. If it doesn't work, it will be fixed when we understand the issue, please have patience.

    What are you using?
    Gnome or KDE?
    I think it's a KDE thing.

    This happens after minimizing screen and maximizing screen again.

    KDE – Plasma 5.12.8

    KDE-Frameworks 5.55.0

    QT version 5.9.7

    Kernel 4.12.14-lp151.28.36-default





    We encounter this issue on some Ubuntu, bug fixed in 2.18.7 (latest version, some days ago).

    Anyway i'm installing just now a OpenSUSE 15.1 with KDE Plasma to check your issue. Thx for your feedback.
    Edit: cannot reproduce, I still think it is fixed in 2.18.7. Do you have the latest version? Thanks

    Manjaro, multiple DE's
    Eddie: 2.18.7

    Since updating to 2.18.7 via AUR, I'm also being prompted to enter my password at boot.  I tried disabling and re-enabling the Systemd service, but the issue persists.

    I'm investigating this. In the meantime, please try to disable Systemd service, close Eddie, restart Eddie and re-enable Systemd, close Eddie, finally restart to check if the elevation password is asked. Thanks.

    I have added the log file.
    I have tried Wireguard and have the strange feeling this gave the problems.
    Maybe this helps.

    You report Eddie log. Please go to your "C:\Program Files\AirVPN" and manually launch tap-windows.exe. It's not related to Eddie, it's the standard OpenVPN Windows Tun. Please report what kind of error is given back.
    Maybe Wireguard causes some kind of conflict, but I don't really think that (I have Wireguard installed too). I need the tap-windows.exe feedback to help you.

    I know they are 2 different problems.
    I added error log for Driver installation failed

    Please go to your "C:\Program Files\AirVPN" and manually launch tap-windows.exe. Maybe it will give you/us some more information about the problem, thanks.

    Try stopping all processes starting with "eddie" via Task Manager before installing.

    Can´t install the new beta on windows10. There´s some error with "evelation" during installation so that I can just abort the process. Anything I can do?

    There was a bug in Windows Installer. We just fixed the current 2.18.7 Windows Installer to avoid this kind of issue for new beta users. Thanks to all for the report.

    Win10 64 bit Pro. I had to delete the elevation service with command line SC DELETE EddieElevationService (as an administrator).
    This removed the elevation service problem.
    But now I get the message: Driver installation failed.
    My apps show I have TAP-Windows 9.24.2.
    I there a way to solve this problem?

    Do you still have this problem? "Driver installation failed" isn't related to the elevation service.

    First of all I'm not an expert about VPN-ish topics.

    Looking at the logs I've noticed Eddie uses OpenVPN > library versions: OpenSSL 1.1.0l  10 Sep 2019 but here ( https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html ) it is said that Versions 1.1.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.0 and 0.9.8 are no longer supported and that since OpenSSL 1.1.0 is not an LTS release it will start receiving security fixes only and it will cease receiving all support in one years time (https://www.openssl.org/blog/blog/2018/09/11/release111/).

    I am just curious to know if there is a particular reason to not update to the 1.1.1 branch.

    Thanks :)


    Previously we compiled ourselves OpenVPN, but for a problem (that I don't remember exactly now, sorry), for this release we bundled the same OpenVPN 2.4.8 you can find right now here: https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/ , OpenVPN Inc. linked against OpenSSL 1.1.0l.
    As soon as possible we will return on this issue and try to compile with 1.1.1 branch.

    After removing the daemon and re-enabling the Preference, Eddies now starts without prompting for a password to elevate privileges, as expected.  Might there be a way going forward to avoid the manual intervention of removing the prior iteration of the daemon as part of each upgrade?

    You are right, we know the cause. No manual intervention will be required in future, this will be fixed before the next release. Thx.

    using 2.18.4beta

    when using the scoring rule "speed" i seem to get the lowest latency server
    when using the scoring rule "latency" i seem to get the server with a lower load but higher latency

    this is the opposite behavior from the stable version?
    one would think when selecting latency to get a server with the lowest latency?

    I understand the perplexity, but even in "Latency" mode, Load and Users on the server penalize the final score (for the 'stars')

    If there are:
    - server A with 30ms latency, but 100 users and 80% load
    - server B with 40ms latency, but 3 users and 5% load

    even in Latency mode, B is preferred over A.

    Anyway, in the latest release (2.18.7), we tuned the formula and will give less importance to load and users when in 'Latency mode'.

    I also tried this, indeed had to give root rights to hummingbird binary.
    Eddie does work, but the ui still has the problem that it is no longer readable, that is the old problem.
    So work again via the console .....
    openSUSE 15.1

    I tested the latest version with openSUSE 15.1, i don't understand the issue. Please report details or screenshot about the "no longer readable" issue, thanks

    Had the same problem, it worked after a eddie restart.

    2.18.5 was working great for me.  I updated to 2.18.6 on W10 1909, and it would disconnect after trying the connection over ipv4, wouldn't even make it to ipv6.  I didn't have a 2.18.5 install, so I downgraded to 2.16.3, and it was still failing until uninstalled the latest TAP driver that 2.18.6 installed, and let 2.16.3 install the one for that version, and it started working again.  I think the issues people are getting are with the newest TAP.

    Some people report issues with IPv6 connection.
    Seem related only to Windows, and somehow related to the newest TAP driver.

    Unfortunately, we can't reproduce those issues right now... we performed every possible test (with newest and latest Eddie version, with newest and latest tap driver version, with upgrade or not of the driver).

    This is very important for us, we need to release as soon as possible a 2.18 version as stable, so if anyone discovers a sequence to reproduce the issue, please give us a feedback. Thanks.

    On 2.18.6 I get a message saying "update available" even though there is no update.

    Clicking it takes me to eddie.website/$platform, which is functionally useless, I'd at least expect it to take me to a .exe download prompt in my browser.

    You still have this issue with 2.18.7? If so, please report your OS, thanks.

    I'm getting issues on 2.18.6 while running

    eddie-ui -cli -connect
    basically the whole process stops at
    Collect information about AirVPN completed
    what's funny, if I run it w/o the -connect parameter and then trigger it with n, it will go ahead and connect to a server. I'm pretty sure it was fine in 2.18.5 beta and before.

    We cannot reproduce this issue. Please retry with the latest version. If the problem occurs, i will try it in Kali (your OS, right?)

    Is anyone else having problems downloading experimental version for arch. For other distros download seems to work fine, but for arch after clicking download  the file it's trying to download is named "download.html" instead of package name thing.  And even if I tried to download that I get error in browser downloads window"Failed - No file".
    I'm using brave browser.


  15. Unfortunately, we can't reproduce the issue right now to fix it.
    It's not the first time users report this kind of error, for example here .
    I honestly don't think it's a problem of Eddie version, something changed if you have now a working 2.18.5.
    It's something specific to special permission, the main error is ''NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: 'launch path not accessible''.

    Two questions:
    1- You installed in path "/Applications/Eddie.localized/Eddie.app". Did you manually build that path (the .localized part) or was it automatic?
    2- If you download 2.18.6, put in another folder (like documents or Download itself) and launch it, does it throw the same error? 

    Thanks for any help, this is an old issue, it occurs sporadically, and we need to understand how to reproduce it to fix it.

    If I enter the command in the terminal I get the following error: 

    "chown: root: illegal group name"

    What am I doing wrong?

    Please wait, the next expected release (few days) doesn't need this for macOS with Hummingbird.

    Please remember it's an experimental feature.
    Now, Linux AppImage and Portable edition, and any MacOS package already have Hummingbird in the bundle, simply tick Preferences -> Advanced -> Use Hummingbird.
    In other kind of linux packages (.deb, .rpm etc) a binary simply called 'hummingbird' need to be in the search path. 
    What do you mean by search path are you referring to path environment variable?
    Simply try to copy in /usr/lib/eddie-ui/hummingbird, and restart Eddie.

    Is the official AUR package for arch linux not maintained anymore? I don't have any issues with 2.17.2 but I'd like to know if there is point in waiting or should I move on to another source.

    Simply please wait if you don't have any issues. The official AUR will be updated as soon as possible, thanks.

    Latest beta (portable) on latest macos, get
    Exception: Rules not loaded

    when trying to activate network lock (it doesn't lock)

    edit: Seems to work when I install full version in Applications folder

    Yes, I understand the error "Rules not loaded" is thrown when Eddie is launched from Download folder (or maybe with the confirmation 'This app was downloaded via Internet').
    In such cases, apps are launched in a kind of 'restricted' environment.
    A solution is still under development, but copying them on different folder (or Applications folder) fixes the issue.

    I'm on raspberry 3 with raspbian buster lite (without ui) and I'm using 2.18.4b eddie-ui -cli command line and syntax.

    I run " sudo eddie-ui -cli -login=****** -password=****** -connect -netlock "

    - the first time I've launched it after install, all worked pretty smooth.
    - the second and next times I've launched it, it stucked after I press the "n" key on the "Server switch requested from keyboard" message.

    You can see the whole verbose bellow.
    By the way, the shutdown ends up with an error message, but I'm not sure it's linked to my "connection to server" issue.

    Issues confirmed, thx, will be fixed in the next release.
    You can write to us the output of 
    uname -m
    on raspbian buster? thx.

    p.s. if you don't have the UI, why you use "eddie-ui -cli" and not direct "eddie-cli" package? Just curiosity, it's equivalent (or need to be, bugs apart)

    2.18.4 seems to be working fine for me, except for one small issue: the "start with system" option doesnt work at all - at least on the latest Windows 10.

    Cannot reproduce. When you set the checkbox "Start with system",
    1- in Task Manager -> Startup tab, Eddie are showed?
    2- If you re-enter in Eddie Preferences, the checkbox is still checked?
