It should ask for your password and then you should find the program in the Internet menu.

Hello!

 

Do you have an installer like gdebi installed?

sudo dpkg -i AirVPN_something_something.deb

Open a terminal, navigate to the path where the .deb installer of Eddie is stored using the command "cd" and use the following command to install Eddie: "sudo gdebi ./filename.deb" (without the quotation marks of course). Remember to put the "./filename.deb" in quotation marks if the filename contains spaces. This should install Eddie as well as all dependencies or if there is a problem it should give you feedback on what exactly is wrong. Once installed there should be a shortcut in the start menu. If not you can launch Eddie from the terminal using the command "airvpn" and or you can create the shortcut manually.

 

If that does not help you could try the portable version that does not need to be installed.

Ok thank you for this advice this seems right ,I tried this using the command

 

sudo gdebi ./eddie-ui_2.12.4_linux_x64_debian

 

after I changed to the Desktop directory because that is where the file is located

 

 

 

Then it gives me this error

 

sudo: gdebi: command not found

sudo: gdebi: command not found

 

There are 2 ways to solve this:

 

1/ The graphical way

 

In a terminal:

sudo apt install gdebi

Then double-click the eddie package and a GUI should pop-up to help you install it.

 

 

2/ The command-line way

 

In a terminal:

sudo dpkg -i eddie-ui_2.12.4_linux_x64_debian.deb

Voilà!

 

EDIT: @Treiberschreiber already gave you the second solution.

Yeah, it seems gdebi is not installed on your system. Like nick75 wrote, install gdebi and retry. Also it was mentioned correctly that you could use dpkg to install the package. But I prefer gdebi (in the terminal or vià the graphical frontend) as it resolves dependencies automatically.

There's a typo, the correct command is:

sudo apt-get install gdebi
 

Kind regards

 

I beg to differ with your comment but since Ubuntu 16.04 (or perhaps 15.10), both are available.

apt resolves dependencies as well.

I forgot to mention, when installed with dpkg also do

sudo apt-get -f install

Also consider that we provide a Debian PPA repository, have a look at https://airvpn.org/linux/

 

Kind regards

Thank you for the people who helped.I want you all to remember that this is for all the community who will search for this solution I know there will be many people who have this problem with all the people changing to linux.Also the offer to pay $50 to the person who helps me get this working is good.

 

I tried to install gdebi and it gave me this error.

 

Money@money:~$ sudo apt install gdebi

You need to either navigate to the directory where the package is with the command cd (as @altae said) or type in the full path

e.g.:

sudo dpkg -i /home/user/download/eddie-ui_2.12.4_linux_x64_debian.deb #this is an example

So https://airvpn.org/linux/ can't use used to download the .deb for you?

 

It would also be helpful if you showed us exactly which commands you put in. I wonder if you remembered sudo or su.

I'm running latest version of Ubuntu 17.10 with Xorg and Eddie works flawlessly. My only complain is that I need to install the curl.

I had a success with Ubuntu 16.04 up to 17.10 with Eddie and I could easily say Eddie works with Ubuntu very well.

I'm just like you, I'm not an expert.

So try again and again , don't give up.
