Hello there,

v0.21.6-4 is a mess at the moment, but if you follow these steps, you will get a decent connection to a chosen riseup vpn server:

  1. Start riseup-vpn
  2. Right click on the system tray icon
  3. Press "Turn off"
  4. Right click on the system tray icon
  5. Press "Pick location"
  6. Select location in the app from the menu
  7. Click on "Status" in the app
  8. Press the button to switch the vpn connection to "on"
  9. Wait for connection...

The PKGBUILD gets qt-installer-framework-4.1.1 but there is a newer stable version installer-framework-4.2.0.tar.gz but it trys to get the qt-installer-framework-4.1.1.tar.gz. Also it doesn't matter and it compiles just wanted to say.

The PKGBUILD specifies pkgver=0.21.6 with corresponding commit. Recently, a new version has been taged (0.21.11). However, neither, 0.21.6, 0.21.11 nor the current version on main work. (Installing the git version is therefore no option anymore.)

this version is not really working anymore. I recommend installing the git version while it's not updated.

The package installs but the application does not work.

Thanks @ljmf00! The fix has been added

I've done some changes to the package to make it works. For some reason, go build -buildmode=c-archive -o lib/libgoshim.a gui/backend.go is not running on make build. It's also needed to generate before build.

I added check() too. It's a good practice to run some tests to make sure the package runs as expected.

Nice to see this in the AUR, had to use "debtap" and convert the .deb to a Arch package to use this before, because the snap's fonts did not show up right. Thanks!
