@Drew: Hm... On my system,

pacman -Qi vpn-slice Name : vpn-slice Version : 0.11-2 [...]

pacman -Ql vpn-slice
vpn-slice /usr/ vpn-slice /usr/bin/ vpn-slice /usr/bin/vpn-slice [...]

which looks exactly like the one you posted, except for a python-setuptools header? Are you sure that the python-setuptools build-time dependency was satisfied on your system?

All this does is install the python distribution. If you want to use the vpn-slice command you need an executable on your PATH that looks like this:

from vpn_slice.main import main

if __name__ == '__main__':

I would have included this in the AUR package.

@akobel It works. Thanks a lot!

@ritze: Thanks for the report. The python-setproctitle dependency was missing; corrected now. If I missed further (Python) dependencies, let me know.

Since I updated the python version from 3.7 to 3.8 vpn-slice throws exceptions:

    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'setproctitle' distribution was not found and is required by vpn-slice

Before the last update package update of vpn-slice I solved the issue by building the package at my own. This doesn't work anymore.
