Thank you for your support!

This package is comprised of a convenience utility to start, stop, list the servers. It also downloads and installs config files from nordvpn. See its help for available commands and usage (sudo nordvpn -h).

The rank command uses fping, which is not listed as a dependency. Might be useful to add it so the script doesn't crash when ranking :)

And you nstinus, thanks for your painless fix :)
Great!

Since a week I use this tool, so I now first have to thank you!

I now tried to update in Pamac but helas ...
Thanks in advance for your ongoing efforts!

Thanks for this tool.
There is a little error, not a big issue but a little bit annoying to progress display ^^ : line 19 printf : *float number* : invalid (expect an int ?)

It happens when running the update.

@DryEagle; As mentionned before, this tools *is* some shell script...
Anyway, I just implemented solution 2 mentioned before meaning that a new command has been added: nordvpn update. It will download, patch and install a fresh set of files from nordvpn.

DryEagle commented on 2017-05-24 21:48

@nstinus I figured it out, in the end. All it took was changing from using this to just regular openvpn and faffing around with some bash scripts to automate it. now everything works much better and no more mismatched updates :))

@DryEagle I share your frustration. The idea initially was that these sums are here for a good reason: they "protect" you from malicious vpn files. Back when that started, they updated perhaps twice a week, so it was ok. Now, it can be several times a day... To address this, I see two options:

1. As you proposed, skip the checksum. But then, if you want a fresh set of config files, you'll need to re- build and install the package. Sounds pretty dirty and you have no way of knowing that the files are outdated.
2. Have nordvpn handle the download-modify-install of the config files; perhaps with a new command. That is what other vpn scripts do I believe (private-internet-access-vpn). It is cleaner and this package will almost never change.

Note that according to sanyika, nordvpn is actively working on a linux desktop application. That probably explains why they do not really want to address my complains.
