@Kastagirkurg I'm the one who marked the package out of date. I've already updated the pkgbuild with all the relevant info and also removed some redundant/irrelevant dependencies.

Btw you can just edit the pkgbuild for the new version the base link is on this page and in the build. You need to take care of the cheksums validitycheck also similar to the spotify comments.

It works ok. Works great for mint cinnamon. Ubuntu wasn't that great but what do you know. There's a package in Manjaro community with fewer dependencies / the optional are made optional.

I don't like Manjaro so I haven't played with the sibling package to be honest but It's easy to get so I hope it may be a source for inspiration.

I couldn't do the job myself and you need to remove unwanted / unneeded dependencies, but that said surfshark- client does the same thing without a bunch of dependencies especially if you're on a gtk based system.

I have 897 packeges now. With surfshark-vpn-gui I would end up with 951.

I think it's unfortunate that the bin has become the most popular. Especially since I mistook the surfshark-client for the old tui-client which does not work as convenient as the GUI-client.

With the tui you need to press enter until you hit the end of the list and the number for the VPNs change constantly so you need to catch the number for the location you desire every time.
