@tavianator: Here's a PKGBUILD utilizing submodules.

WIREGUARD-MODULE should not be included in dependencies as it's not needed for kernels <5.6 and it's already an optional dependency of wireguard-tools.

@blackpoll: Looks like that file is only created to limit it to one process at once: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/mozilla-vpn-client/blob/50bd2f1c93dbe8db69df3ad3c3217b42a6492486/src/commands/commandui.cpp#L109-L120. You can delete it if it's not running.

This creates the file "mozillavpn.lock" in my home directory. Can this be deleted?

That's what I tried first but the git repo uses submodules which don't make it into the GitHub tarballs.

@tavianator: Oh, I see. I hadn't come across the GitHub repo yet.

EDIT: Redacted a few things from the record, answered my own questions. I've hardly had any sleep lately due to my cluster headaches. Mind is fried.

Why not use the release tarball from GitHub? It appears the Launchpad tarball is the same so it shouldn't really matter, but it would make it easier to keep track of, I think.

@blackpoll: WIREGUARD-MODULE is provided by, for example, the official Linux package: https://archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/linux/

@yochananmarqos: I named it after the repo: https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/mozilla-vpn-client. But I see it's called mozillavpn in the PPA. I'll rename it.

Please don't invent package names. The project is called mozillavpn. Please create a new package and submit a request to merge this one into it.

WIREGUARD-MODULE is only required for kernels <5.6.

Thanks for putting this together so quickly. I'm confused about the dependencies. yay -S installed the qt5 dependencies and the wireguard tools but nothing from the massive list under WIREGUARD-MODULE. It says 12 dependencies but many more than that are listed. Any tips on what else to install?

Thank you so much for launching this so quick. Works very well!
