If you're seeing the message "Daemon is unreachable, is systemd running?", that means that the nordvpn daemon is not started. Please run "sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd" to start it and run it at boot, or "sudo systemctl start nordvpnd" to only start it once.

@alogim The kill-switch only works after you are connected to a server. After you connect to a server it will apply the iptables, and only then if you lose internet, will it be blocked.

@alogim The package is a repack of the official app. As nordvpn is a paid service - you should use their bugtracker/forum/issues platform to report it.

I noticed that even though KillSwitch is enabled, still I can browse the Internet without problems when NordVPN is not connected. My current settings: Technology: OpenVPN Protocol: TCP Kill Switch: enabled CyberSec: disabled Obfuscate: disabled Notify: enabled Auto-connect: enabled DNS: disabled

Is there any fix?

@Martoko / @erkexzcx, thank you for collaborating together to help improve this package. Well done!

erkexzcx commented on 2019-08-28 14:07

@Martoko here is the list:

amd64 = x86_64
arm64 = aarch64
armel = arm & armv6h
armhf = armv7h
i386 = i686

Also feel free to use my written in Go app to generate PKGBUILD:

sudo pacman -S go
go get
wget -O app.go
go build app.go

Also, I would like to share my computing power to schedule automated script to update this AUR package. Let me know if needed.

EDIT: My bad, in the golang code I accidentally left nordvpn-cli rather than nordvpn-bin. Change before compiling.

I have updated the package.

The mapping between how Debian names arm architectures and how Arch Linux names arm architectures does not seem to be documented anywhere, so I made a few qualified guesses here:

armel -> armv6h
armhf -> armv7h
arm64 -> aarch64

If anyone can confirm or deny the above mappings, it would be most appreciated.

Is it possible to update this to 1.0.0? Thank you!

@erkexzcx For the moment, no options. If the package is actually unmaintained, adopting it. If the maintainer updates and somehow outright refuses to include armv6, MAYBE nordvpn-armv6 but I'm not a TU and have little to none knowledge about a case like this, so I would discuss it with a TU beforehand ESPECIALLY given your past. In most cases you'd probably just live with it and makepkg -A but I know it doesn't work for this exact package. Using a local PKGBUILD is always an option.

erkexzcx commented on 2019-08-27 16:38

@disastro - If I would like to contribute to the community and create Arch Linux package for NordVPN armv6 architecture, what options do I have? Just asking, no offense.

@Jessie Your note seems to grossly be based on baseless claims by erkexzcx. When the package was flagged on the 12th it wasn't out of date. 3.3.1 has only been out since the 19th and the package has only been correctly flagged since yesterday. All architechtures beyond x86_64 are extra, if a maintainer wants to add them they can do so at their own will and pace. That said it's fine to create a personal PKGBUILD, that's what I do with a lot of packages, but bashing the maintainer with or without reason isn't nice.
