I've been using AirVPN for awhile on Windows and today I'd like to start using it on Linux. I'm not completely new to Linux, but I must be doing something wrong because I can't figure this out.
I'm using Ubuntu 17.10 on an x86_64 machine.
I've installed the Eddie .deb package.
I see I now have a /usr/bin/airvpn executable. I tried to launch it from the command-line, and it pops up an error about not being able to copy my .Xauthorization file and failing to run as root.
So I tried sudo airvpn and I get a very long stack trace basically telling me I don't have a config file in ~/.airvpn/AirVPN.xml and then letting me know it didn't have permission to use my x DISPLAY.
So my questions are:
1. Am I supposed to run airvpn with sudo?
2. Am I supposed to create a config file before running airvpn?
3. Do I need to do something to allow airvpn to access my display?
Sorry if these are stupid questions, and if there's a link that I've missed to a page that explains this I'd be grateful if you'd point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
