can you add the zip package as a dependency? it's required to save error logs from the dialogue

@nilsonpvh I don't think you understood the concept of AUR.

The idea is to provide package for archlinux that you can manage with pacman.

A lot of package here are repackaged or repurposed from other package format like .run

Acredito que esse aplicativo não precisa ser mas disponibilizado, pois ja tem o e só executar e inicia a instalação por si próprio.

Agradeço o empenho do mantenedor!

Thank you very much for your extensive and comprehensive explanation! 'Use kernel module' is not check by default (at least, not for me), it is even greyed out. I think this will be checkable if I installed the correct dependency.

Thanks again!

Most of the time, that dependency is provided by the kernel you have installed. You can check that with pacman.

If it is not, you have to install additionnial package from aur, like wireguard-dkms, or wiregard-module-git

You need the WIREGUARD-MODULE dependency if you want to use the module in the kernel, when you checked the 'Use kernel module' in piavn settings (which is by default I think ?)

Otherwise, this is not needed if you unchecked the checkbox.

Note: you can see what package provides 'WIREGUARD-MODULE' just above, in the dependencies box.

Apologies if this is an obvious question, but I cannot seem to find the answer to it (maybe because I do not know the right query terms).

How does one install the optional WIREGUARD-MODULE dependency?

Thank you very much in advance!

I am just repackaging the .run downloaded from So it is the same and should be ok. It is working for me.

If you have any problem, please provide a pastebin link of your log with the problem visible.

Also, right now, the package is not compatible aarch64 (rpi4/archlinuxarm). I can make it but I will not be able to test it.

Same as WiLL-iAm. This package failed, but running ./ worked just fine.

piavpn-bin installed fine but became stuck on "connecting" to any PIA server region I tried after providing the login credential file. Believe I was hitting the same bug as theriddick below. Like BWildered01, downloading and installing the .run file straight from did actually work.

Hello, I had to use '' instead to install on the Rapserry pi 4. After that, it worked without a hitch.
