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.

I have updated based-devil. I have installed YAY and used it to install nordvpn-bin. My problem wiht libalpm seem resolve. But i have some problems with two files when i try to install nordvpn with YAY. I have received theses messages:

nordvpn-bin : /var/lib/nordvpn/data/insights.dat already exist in the file system nordvpn-bin : /var/lib/nordvpn/data/servers.dat already exist in the file system. YAY don't have installed nordvpn To be able to delete them, I have tried to change all permissions on these files with these commands :

sudo chmod a=rwx /var/lib/nordvpn/data/servers.dat sudo chmod a=rwx /var/lib/nordvpn/data/insights.dat

But these operations are not autorised by the system.

@Klodep yaourt is outdated / depricated meaning no longer active developed. ( I use yay (yet another yaourt) and it works fine and also get the nordvpn-bin working fine. (

Just in your case if libalpm is missing, it should be in the "yayourt -S base-devel" or "yay libalpm" and than base-devel. (You should install base-devel on every arch system for basic stuff if you plan on compiling software from the [[AUR]] Have fun :) (

Why does connecting and disconnecting takes so long since the last two udates?

Nordvpn has a bash completion implemented. Maybe the maintainer of this package could add "bash-completion" package as an optional dependency and add a script to PKGBUILD to move it from ${pkgdir}/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/nordvpn to /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/nordvpn?

Just a tip for the future, although this is a binary package, since there's no source version or source to make one, you wouldn't include that in the name

@tito480 maybe you're trying to enable obfuscation while on nordlynx? AFAIK wireguard (or nordlynx as they call it) has no obfuscation.

@robotdna Still no luck, thanks anyway for the help.

@tito480 I am able to enable and connect to obfuscate servers. Since this AUR package is just a wrapping for the provided NordVPN .deb client, my suggestion would first be to open the PKGBUILD and look at how the .deb from NordVPN is installed and try this set of commands manually, using the downloaded .deb from their website. If 'obfuscate' still does not work, then you can isolate the issue to their client itself and contact their support at
