  • pythong-grpcio-tools was installed.
  • python-protobuf-git was installed.
  • python-grpcio was installed.

I'd checked the versions, all were up-to-date.

I did an uninstall of all. Rechecked versions. SAME (as prior to uninstall).

Rebuilt opensnitch-git with --editmenu to install 1.3.0rc2 version, and grpc_tools error is now gone.

Couple of notes:

If you want to install v1.3_0*; you can install with:

$ yay(*or your aur helper of choice*) -S opensnitch-git --editmenu;

  • choose to edit the PKGBUILD and edit line 25 (in the pkgver function) to be: git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-\)g/r\1/;s/-/./g'

I'm also experiencing the:
- Error while finding module specification for 'grpc_tools.protoc' (ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'grpc_tools' #212

Which seems to have a long-standing issue (new for me, as opensnitch-git has always compiled successfully).

Will keep looking into it.

And version 1.3.0.rc.2.r0.6619124-1 needs python-grpcio-tools too. (but it works again.)

Now with 1.3.0.rc.1.r4.0b85f6b-1, I get:

❯ opensnitch-ui     
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/opensnitch-ui", line 22, in <module>
    from opensnitch.service import UIService
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'opensnitch'

For me it broke after the last update using 1.2.0.r11.a517ebe-1. See log below:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/opensnitch-ui", line 22, in <module>
    from opensnitch.service import UIService
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/opensnitch/", line 23, in <module>
    from dialogs.stats import StatsDialog
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/opensnitch/dialogs/", line 748
    self.nodeRuleLabel.setText("" if active)

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

With version 1.3.0.rc.1.r4.0b85f6b-1 it works again.

After Manjaro update and opensnitch re-install - it works!

Zame commented on 2020-11-17 06:51

After today's update it doesn't start.
Can't start GUI.
Can't start opensnitchd: 'There is no /home/username/rules'
After creating it: 'Starting opensnitch-daemon v1.3.0rc1 Loading rules from /home/username/rules ... ERROR: nfq_create_queue() queue not created Is opnensitchd already running? Error while creating queue #0: Error binding to queue: operation not permitted' As I can see, there's a new path for rules?
After clean installing the same result:
Service status is Active. Gui doesn't start

@Zame @L0-FF: When /etc/opensnitchd/default-config.json changes upstream, you'll have a pacnew: /etc/opensnitchd/default-config.json.pacnew. Make sure to merge any new changes.

You may need to update your /etc/opensnitchd/default-config.json Think I experienced the same issue as well.

From upstream:

The configuration file /etc/opensnitchd/default-config.json has new fields. .If you're upgrading opensnitch and you have modified it, you must replace the one you have installed with the one shipped with the packages (apt will ask you to do it).
Changes made to that file will be overwritten after installation.
