If you're running AirVPN on Linux you probably don't want to have to type your sudo password in each time it runs. Why? If you're auto-starting it, you want your network lock and VPN connection to happen as soon as you login. Here's what I did for Ubuntu (Actually Kubuntu)... Install gksu (sudo apt install gksu) Add AirVPN to your autostart list and for command use gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo nano /usr/share/applications/AirVPN.desktop and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Edit the AirVPN entry in your application launcher and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo visudo and add the line %airvpn ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/airvpn after all other rules (Press Ctrl+x and then Enter to exit and save). Run sudo groupadd airvpn Run sudo usermod -a -G airvpn user replacing "user" with your account's username. You're done. The next time you login (Or start it any any other way) AirVPN will start without entering any password. Note: Your AirVPN settings will be back to default after doing this. Don't worry, just set them again and they'll save.
In a fresh install a month ago I ran into several problems when trying to install eddie with dpkg. It kept complaining about gksu and libmono*. Couldn't make it work installing those packages manually because would ran into different issues. The solution was rather simple, visit: https://docs.kali.org/general-use/kali-linux-sources-list-repositories and add to your /etc/apt/sources.list the "Retired Kali sana (2.0) Repositories" below the current one => deb http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib This did the trick for me. Hope it helps .
