Note that this package provides only VPN profiles but not the vendor’s software.

The package version refers to the python-pia tool by @flamusdiu, which may lag behind the vendor’s own VPN software version.

Please do not flag this package out-of-date unless @flamusdiu releases a new stable python-pia version.

Thank you!

For those having problems of slow SSL/TLS times, broken page css and other "eternally loading" behaviors, you should lower your MTU and MSS using this:

iptables -I OUTPUT -o tun0 -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --set-mss 1140
ip link set dev tun0 mtu 1200

Please note that this is the "sweet spot" for my ISP, and yours could be higher. Tried mss 1420 and MTU 1460, mss 1200 and mtu 1240 and didn't worked out in MY scenario...

I have adopted the package and, hopefully, fixed all the outstanding issues.

@dylanmtaylor

Not sure if this will ever get fixed.

Meanwhile, just use the installer from the official website: https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/installer/x/download_installer_linux chmod +x the installer the run it. It should work.

Installing this is still broken, over a year later. Can this be fixed or a new maintainer found?

The package is unfortunately still broken, but it seems that the solution proposed by hyness still works (prepending a v to the tag on that github link). Please update?

flamusdiu commented on 2021-01-14 16:57 (UTC)

Woops. I'll get that updated.
