Hi, My operating system is Antix v.17, 32 bit (a lightweight Debian - Stretch based distro, with no systemd). For network managers, I have ceni and wicd. Firefox and Thunderbird are my primary internet applications. The system works very nicely, and will connect directly, or via AirVPN (using Eddie v.2.16.3). It also works well with the Windscribe cli application for Debian Linux. However, not long ago, I installed firejail (v.0.9.60) and apparmor. My practice is to run Firefox and Thunderbird in separate firejails. However, when either VPN (AirVPN or Windscribe) is active, there is no internet connection to either firejailed program. (Only one instance of Firefox runs at a time, either inside or outside of firejail.) I visited the firejail github support site. Apparently, there are ways to make firejail work with a vpn, but it's a bit confusing to me. I am relatively new to Linux... beginning to find my way around. But I have very limited understanding about network routing and configuration. I have also experimented with a couple of other openvpn VPN providers (both with Eddie v.2.18.7 and with direct openvpn connection). One of those services appears to form a tunnel, but the browser (not in firejail) did not find and use the new ip. At this point, I'll stick with AirVPN (and Windscribe, if I really need a server in a country that Air doesn't cover). Can you steer me in the right direction? Your help will be much appreciated!
Hi all Debian 9 (stretch) Have installed airvpn via the repo (added to my /etc/sources.list & downloaded signing key) when I try to start airvpn from the menu (or the terminal as a standard user) a gui appears saying eddie needs root privileges, and asks for my root password. when I enter my root password, it returns a password incorrect error. airvpn will start and opens eddie from the terminal when running as root. how can I get the airvpn gui to accept my root password, (I do not want to have a root terminal open when using airvpn) thanks
