indeed, on Astrill download page[1] the last option (Linux 64bit CLI install) worked without a problem. thank you for the heads up.

FYI, the Astrill app has had five releases so far in 2018. The shell script available on the official is working fine for installs. Also, a comment below suggests using a PKGBUILD script that references a source URL that is not referenced anywhere else by the company.

I mean no disrespect to the maintainer. Astrill didn't push out releases at all in 2017 and for the latter half of the year before that, so this is a big change.

first, you should have installed openssl-1.0.

then I add a file in dir /etc/ called openssl-1.0.conf, and write /usr/lib/openssl-1.0

It works

yair commented on 2017-08-10 11:21

can you share method of how to add openssl-1.0 to ld.conf ?
followed this

"include /usr/lib/openssl-1.0"

to /etc/

hantian_pang commented on 2017-08-08 09:05

I add the path to openssl-1.0 library to,astrill cant use openssl1.1

yair commented on 2017-08-08 08:56

same here, after installing via .sh i get
"unable to find ssl library"

hantian_pang commented on 2017-07-30 16:31


hi, When I try to log in astrill, it show could not find ssl library

astrill commented on 2016-11-15 22:09


please use this PKGBUILD script for version 3.2


pkgdesc="VPN configuration tool for Astrill's servers"
arch=('x86_64' 'i686')
if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

package() {
mv "${srcdir}/usr" "${pkgdir}"


Don't forget to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

after installation!

astrill commented on 2016-11-08 17:28

We officially don't support archlinux, but if there's enough requests, we will add support.

Has anyone tried to run .sh installer instead of using RPM ? It will install files and set proper permissions. If you just copy over/unpack files, you'll end up with "ASProxy component has insufficient privilege ..."

Please note that you cannot fix error #901 on your own nor our support can help with this error. You are modifying Astrill binaries somehow, probably they get stripped, and we will refuse to run application, due to security reasons.

madmanali93 commented on 2016-10-02 10:04

For the people with the error#901 try restarting after install and reset the configurations in the astrill GUI. Worked for me.

Also run astrill as root once on fresh install.

I am not sure how many people are facing issues with astrill. But mine is that udp seems to not work properly and tcp does in astrill. It seems to work fine on my laptop but not desktop for some reason. I am in contact with Astrill support but their tech support aren't too technical. I'll post back if I figure it out.

tellmi commented on 2016-09-08 01:01

I tried again, downloading through the mirrors UK and US, but both failed, leading to error #901.

Are you familiar with the new AUR concept, I try to switch from yaourt to powerpill and bauerbill. These wrappers are looking for a git under which is not existing...

jediofthecode commented on 2016-08-15 07:52

The package that is from the astrill website is broken, Will have to revert it to the 2.9.3 version, I have emailed astrill support re: this issue but have not received a response.

tellmi commented on 2016-08-15 07:43

my email is:
If you could send me an email and tell me, what to do as an maintenance officer... (sounds hyperimportant), it would be great, I'm interested!


tellmi commented on 2016-08-15 07:41

latest update:
In Germany it worked for a few minutes like a charm, that's why I wrote my last euphoric comment. Now I'm back in China, login has a "connection time out", later my old friend

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

appears again.

I just want to cry!

yair commented on 2016-08-14 07:12

I'll test and submit change. Still looking for a new maintenence officer :)

tellmi commented on 2016-08-14 07:10

Good news!

I'd just like to tell you, if you alter the PKGBUILD with these changes, the installation works:

I changed "url", "source", x86_64's "rpmpkg" and "md5sums".

Don't forget to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

after installation!

Here's the complete script:

# Maintainer: yair reshef <>
# Contributor: piojo, jediofthecode

pkgdesc="VPN configuration tool for Astrill's servers"
arch=('x86_64' 'i686')
if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

package() {
mv "${srcdir}/usr" "${pkgdir}"

jediofthecode commented on 2016-08-08 03:47

Hey guys ! Sorry for the long delay in response, Been super busy with work. I am taking a look at this and it seems the package that astrill themselved is providing is broken. I am testing out various different methods and will update ASAP!

tellmi commented on 2016-08-07 20:52

Dear maintainers!

Since a while I have that problem:

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

Asking Astrill Support team I recentlöy got that answer:
Hi tellmi,

Does your system modify binaries in any way ? For example it strips binaries during installation ?

We check if our software is modified and prevent it to run. It can be modified by a virus for example.

Best regards,
Astrill Development

So I'm forwarding this question to you, but after checking PCKGBUILD I guess, it's only unzipping the downloaded RPM and rezipping to an Arch Package. There's high unlikely a virus responsible.

Did you ever meet that error and do you have an idea, how to solve that?

kind regards


tellmi commented on 2016-08-05 09:08

you have to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

first and exit.
Afterwards you should be able to start it as a normal user.

But I still have "Error#901". Does anyone have an idea?

CSYates_98 commented on 2016-07-14 12:54

Okay so I finally installed it. However I get this error now:

ASProxy component has insufficient privilege. Please reinstall the program.

Anyone know whats wrong here?

tellmi commented on 2016-07-12 13:34

1) download that file manually, eg.
2) open the target folder in your terminal
3) md5sum astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm (or however the downloaded file is named)
-> you'll get a hash sum like this:
b833e6b006686101d444831eb8c2f276 astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm
4) copy that hash sum
5) yaourt -S astrill
6) edit the PCKBUILD with nano
7) find the line

if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

and change the md5sums to the new value (b833e6b006686101d444831eb8c2f276)

Now it should work! But for me it stops later with that error message:

Missing Package-Metadata in/tmp/yaourt-tmp-xxxx/PKGDEST.gSi/astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm

Any ideas to solve that problem?

CSYates_98 commented on 2016-07-12 01:46

Whenever I try to install it it tells me that validating the source files with md5sums failed. Any pointers?

tellmi commented on 2016-07-07 14:34

Does anyone else gets this weird error message:

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

I just followed the PCKBUILD. I even restarted the computer, deleted the settings in my home folder and reentered the login data. Still the same.

Could anyone give me a hint, please?


yair commented on 2016-04-18 13:35

ill probably re-try with this.

build() {
cd ${srcdir}
rm -Rf *
msg "Connecting to GIT server ..."
git clone $_gitroot
cd $_gitname
make -f Makefile

package() {
cd $srcdir/$_gitname
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin
install -m a+rx mx5500 $pkgdir/usr/bin/

yair commented on 2016-03-28 08:06

packge() section is wrong, it should probebly invoke install into /opt

yair commented on 2016-01-17 13:47

megahertz, can this be fixed in pkgbuild?

megahertz commented on 2016-01-17 12:44

kumazemi, you need to run Astrill as a root for the first time.

kumazemi commented on 2015-10-23 23:03

Fails to start with a message "ASComponent does not have the necessary permissions. Please reinstall the package."
