The new official Linux CLI client is now available. Source code and AUR protonvpn-cli. Please upgrade to this client if possible.

As for this community version, I think it should be maintained here for a while longer as there have still been git changes over the last week. The latest version is 2.2.11. This package is now marked as conflicting with the official protonvpn-cli package.

Note: if upstream changes and the checksum needs to be updated, please try clean building to prevent caches from interfering.

@Thrawn Same issue here.

I'm getting a validity check error (which is strange, because when I download the tar locally, the signature seems to match). Any idea?

v2.2.2.tar.gz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

@Rafficer Thanks! Must be blind. The Readme still uses the old URL in its instructions, by the way.

Just fyi

The project URL has been changed from to

@calexandru2018 At the moment the upstream isn't including any checksums or PGP signatures for releases. I'm hoping that will change soon:

Could you also add the md5checksum ?

@joelostblom They were. Just unpinned the comment. This is the new version and is not deprecated. Thanks!

@ddnomad Just checking if the comments about the deprecation were inherited from the old version of the AUR package since this appears to be the new protonvpn-cli-ng version, not the deprecated protonvpn-cli version.

@jogdand Pinned deprecation warning here in comments + updated package description to direct people to NG package.

Do not think I should remove this package completely though, as ProtonVPN developers themselves decided to keep protonvpn-cli as is and name a new version protonvpn-cli-ng, which is consistent with how both AUR packages are currently named.

Thank you for pinging me to update the package though :) Merry Christmas!

Please note that this package is considered deprecated by ProtonVPN developers as new Python version of a client was released.
