Well this is a bit misleading then as the package description says it is the official ProtonVPN metapackage, maintained by the ProtonVPN team. If this is just a wrapper for the official one it should say it is an unofficial metapackage that wraps the official packages that are maintained by the ProtonVPN team. There is an important distinction here that is not at all clear. The Proton team packages must be distinct then from the AUR package and its maintainer.

Please don't flag this package as out-of-date. See my pinned comment here:

I reached out to the maintainer. Hopefully we can get this updated soon. The current Linux client in AUR is not good.

You must have NetworkManager and the NM-applet installed. I have LXQt desktop; I installed packages networkmanager-qt and network-manager-applet from the Arch repo. I assume networkmanager and network-manager-applet will also be ok.

connman with cmst does not work.

nm-tray (Qt-based) does not work.

I did clear the AUR cache beforehand, may not be necessary.

I am running gnome desktop environment and I needed to install network-manager-applet otherwise I would get "an unknown reason occured" whenever trying to connect. Perhaps this should be included as dependency somewhere in the package chain?

it doesn't work. it installs fine i am able to run it but i cannot connect to any servers.
