Latest version 0.80 does not connect, with password set. But does not ask for OTP. Original forticlient on console works.

Log is sparse: Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: client api helo command:: 0 ::name:: "xyz" Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: active-tab:: 0 Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: start vpn: "xyz" active-tab:: 0 Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: client disconnected:: "xyz" Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: vpnManager::onClientVPNStatusChanged() "xyz" status 0 Aug. 1 20:47:06 openfortiGUI::Debug: MainWindow::onClientVPNStatusChanged:: "xyz" ::status:: 0

Hi all, I wrote a little patch that allows the client to run in the user environment, so useful tray icon, no pkexec needed, vpn configs/logs in user's home (thus editable without root permissions) and other little benefits.

Moreover AES key and IV are stored in gnome-keyring, which is a big plus for security.

For this to work without password you need to add this in /etc/sudoers:

youruser ALL=NOPASSWD:SETENV: /usr/bin/openfortigui

The magic here is done by the "-E" sudo argument, which preserves the user's environment in the privileged process.

@macfly it would be great if you would include that to the PKGBUILD If not, here is the code for anyone else interested.

@geekzolanos's option works, however it does not show a tray icon when launched through polkit

Running the generated package fails when i try to connect on a VPN. I made the following workaround to use it without need to run with sudo on terminal: 1. Create a new Polkit Action referencing to 'openforticlient' and the 'auth_admin' rights 2. Modify the 'Exec' field on the .desktop entry line from 'Exec=/usr/bin/openfortigui' to 'Exec=pkexec /usr/bin/openfortigui' After it, i just need to type the password before the app runs and everything goes excelent.

Note, that qtinyaes has to be removed as of

right... if I try to run with sudo, I got weird issue - it does not resolve gateway address... even tough it is resolvable everywhere else, including shell it was started from :) after using IP address I was able to connect, aaand it started working as normal user either 8-O ...
