@shoryuken thank you, that worked!

@ali.molaei I'm not sure of technicalities of dependencies, but if you cannot force network-manager-applet as a dependency I think you should at least pin some comment explaining that getting it might fix issues. As it stands I accidentally found the solution at other package page https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/protonvpn-cli#comment-951908, and only since it's the newest one.

When the app starts, the following error is shown:

Unterminated string starting at: line 1 column 2764789 (char 2764788)

@melioratio thanks for letting me know about 4.4.0, I'll update when it's on github

If any of y'all are having problems with disabling "advanced kill switch" after uninstalling the program because you forgot to turn it off before removing the program, you can regain access to the internet by disabling the "pvpn-killswitch-perm" using nmcli (or do it graphically from the settings app if you are on KDE)

Alternatively, you can edit /home/.config/Proton/VPN/settings.json to say "killswitch": 0

I have looked through some of the comments here and have tried some of the mentioned fixes like clearing the cache, manually installing the python-proton-* dependencies, etc, but none of them seam to work.

When I try to run protonvpn-app I get this error:

So sometimes I to ge the crash on launch, but fiddling with it (starting either from KDE directly or from the terminal) will eventually start the app.

However, any time I try to connect to any server I get the following error and the connection process hangs with "something unexpected happened"

python-proton-vpn-session package is no longer needed and obsoleted after this commit.

The software crashes on launch. I tried to clear yay cache and all (-Rcnssu as mentioned below), then rebuild the package, but nothing changes.

Thank you folks, finally figured it out with your help.

I think the problem is that I was removing packages through pacman but installing them through paru -- meaning that the paru cache wasn't getting cleaned out. Make sure you run paru -Sc (or sim. for your AUR wrapper of choice) to clear the AUR cache as well.
