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.

Deprecated (

@ddnomad, Can we replace this by 'ng' version. OR atleast, add the deprecation info in description.

Thanks for maintaining. I feel this PKGBUILD is more of a -git style development package, so I believe you should point the source to the tarball releases at and remove git from the makedepends.

Working on that now. Just added python-pythondialog and python-setuptools. Thank you for the help.

You may want to add a few more dependencies to this PKGBUILD. I could see three external python libraries imported:

python-docopt python-pythondialog python-requests

These should be added to the "depends" array in the PKGBUILD.

Very bad idea on my part. Updated to replace:

sudo pip3 install .


python install --optimize=1 --root="$pkgdir"

I had used the former as the official installation instructions from the source repository use that.

The PKGBUILD contains the line:

sudo pip3 install .

That can't be right?? What is going on here?

exprez135 commented on 2019-11-21 06:50

I created a separate package for protonvpn-cli-ng, the new Python-based client. Since they are two separate repositories and work completely differently, I figure they should be separate from one another.
