@thecrow: Thanks for the info. I switched to the mirror on my school's server temporarily to get the latest version. If you have a link from pulsesecure.net or other ideas, please tell me.

The pulse secure PULSE5.3R4.1 and lower is vulnerability:

The Pulse Linux GUI component does not perform strict SSL certificate validation which allows the attacker to manipulate the Pulse connection set. (https://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Security_Advisories/SA43620)

This issue is resolved in the following Pulse Secure Desktop Linux client releases PULSE5.3R4.2 Software (Build 639)

Info for the latest version: https://www.pulsesecure.net/techpubs/pulse-client/pulse-secure-client-desktop

Latest unofficial download links: https://wiki.univ-nantes.fr/nomade:document2 I just tried ps-pulse-linux-5.3r4.2-b639-centos-rhel-64-bit-installer.rpm and it's still linked to legacy webkitgtk rather than modern webkit2gtk.

@yan12125 re: link issues. It just seemed like there were less runtime link dependencies on the older webkitgtk2 vs the newer one, so I choose that one to get something running more easily.

@pd5rm: Thanks for the patch, but it's not necessary now. I've adopted webkitgtk and applied the enchant fix. Furthermore, the archlinuxcn team has published prebuilt binaries for webkitgtk. Check my comments at the webkitgtk package.

seems to have less link issues

Mind sharing what's the actual linking issue? It might be a webkitgtk issue and can be solved there.

Sorry, didn't have notifications enabled so didn't see earlier responses. I cleaned up my patch a little (makes the lib stuff more generic), and merge from latest master.

It's basically working around the issue of building webkitgtk from source which is very time consuming by pulling down the related binary bits (icu, enchant, webkitgtk) from archives. It's not a great way to package, but until Pulse starts pushing new builds there's not much else we can do here but workaround it.

@yan12125 I don't know if webkitgtk2 is any better, but seems to have less link issues when I tried. I think webkitgtk is newer in that it has GTK3 support. The versioning is very confusing.

Happy holidays and new year!

I put it in a GIST, since it got garbled a bit. https://gist.github.com/pd5rm/fad6d3800bdf1848d66040e47547db14

@ImNtReal, @mlotysz: icu and enchant issues belong to the webkitgtk package instead of this one. Please leave comments at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/webkitgtk/ if you want them fixed.

@pd5rm: Is webkitgtk2 better than webkitgtk? Both are AUR packages and need lots of time for building.

@csmiet: Thanks for the suggestion. I'm currently rebuilding (patched) webkitgtk for testing. Please checkout https://github.com/yan12125/aur/issues/10 for progress.

I needed to install enchant1.6 and icu59 to get pulseUi to run.

Hi yan12125,

I packed pd5rm patch (see pd5rm commented on 2017-12-02 00:54) and added missing libenchant.1.so to it. Pulse secure is running now, however I don't have possibility to test it thoroughly. Patch: https://gist.github.com/mlotysz/a6e905477948e6bb05f95ba25d46a9ad.

Have fun!

Hi, I´m trying to run the pulseUi on a fresh ArchLinux installation. It fails with /usr/local/pulse/pulseUi: error while loading shared libraries: libwebkitgtk-3.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I don´t know where i can find this lib. Can anybody help me, please?. Thanks a lot.
