To build, download anyconnect-linux64-$pkgver-core-vpn-webdeploy-k9.sh and place it with the sources, and adjust the PKGBUILD pkgver as appropriate.

@dfjigdfijgojio What wasn't clear to me at the beginning was where to put the anyconnect-...-webdeploy-k9.sh file, but I've worked it out! Here are the steps I took:

  1. As per @RunasSudo's instructions, you need to download anyconnect-linux64-$pkgver-core-vpn-webdeploy-k9.sh.
  2. Using your AUR client, clone the anyconnect-client package in a manner such that it prompts you to edit the PKGBUILD file. I used pacaur, so the command for me was pacaur -Sde anyconnect-client.
  3. When the PKGBUILD is opened in a text editor, go to your file explorer and navigate to your .cache folder and find the folder of your package manager. There, you will find the source folder called anyconnect-cisco. In my case, the directory was: /home/usr/.cache/pacaur/anyconnect-cisco.
  4. Copy your downloaded anyconnect-linux64-$pkgver-core-vpn-webdeploy-k9.sh file into this directory. Take notice that the $pkgver part in your file's name will (probably) have something else in place.
  5. In your PKGBUILD file, go the the line near the top beginning with source:. Edit the declaration of the anyconnect-...-webdeploy-k9.sh file such that it matches the filename of the file you just copied into the source folder.
  6. Write out the changes you made to the PKGBUILD and close the file. Your AUR manager will do the rest and (hopefully) install the anyconnect-client.

Hopefully this helps someone out there :)

Where can I get the 'anyconnect-linux64-$pkgver-core-vpn-webdeploy-k9.sh' from? I can download from Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client a pkg and two differnt tars. None of them contains the webdeploy shell script that I need.

Thanks for the awesome package! It saved me so much work.

BTW, I'd also suggest to add pangox-compat as dep.

nkay08 commented on 2019-03-18 15:43

Could you add a dependency to pangox-compat from extra ? /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnui won't run without /usr/lib/libpangox-1.0.so

@osval See the pinned comment, you need to manually download the anyconnect binaries and place them in the source folder as these are not publicly available.

I tried to install this package with pikaur and also tried to skip it with p options but didn't make any progress with it:

$ pikaur -S anyconnect-client
