Obviously I have something installed in my old home dir which is breaking the vpn app but how to work it out without a slow re-install of everything is a mystery.
did you try creating a new user and installing under that account? worked for me.
@hawalaare you encrypting your drive and/or home directory?
@hawala scroll up and read all rainmaker's posts. he seems to have determined that encryption is a probllem, but he figured out a way around it that worked for himedit: I don't encrypt anything on my drive and have used the PIA app on Ubuntu 12.04, 13.10 (Mint, actually) and Trusty w/o issue.it's a simple sh ./installer.sh and I'm up and running.
Progress? I tried running run.sh (located at: ~/.pia_manager/pia_manager/) and this was the only error that kept appearing, while my app switched between red and green:modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'ip6_tables': Operation not permittedip6tables v1.4.21: can't initialize ip6tables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)Perhaps ip6tables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.Did some searching but couldn't find any good fixes. I suspect that others may be having the same error. Any thoughts on how to fix this?EDIT: SOLVED. I encrypt both my hard drive and my home directory so I was a little worried that the encryption might be interfering with the app. However, before reinstalling w/o encryption, I tried simply creating a new user and reinstalling the app. Success! So, delete and recreate your first user account, then reinstall the app. Hopefully, there is now a happy green droid atop your taskbar I would add that this is probably much more likely to work, for you, if you were experiencing the same error that I discussed, above (which you can test by attempting to run /home/your_user/.pia_manager/pia_manager/run.sh).GOOD LUCK!!
just wanted to clarify that i do encrypt my hdd and home directory and the PIA app still works, after creating a new user account and installing, there. obviously, you'll have to transfer all of your files and settings to the new account.
We just updated our Linux client, it is the same update we did for the Windows and OSX clients - the only change is an updated OpenSSL version (openssl-1.0.1h).The download link is the same:https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/installer/download_installer_linuxNew sha256 checksum:f0467a7b3335c87db09c03e6ab8f356572980201c92c074d2fb7c1d1f0f67509
@WilhelmGGWfrom the terminal in the directory you downloaded to:tar -xvzf installer_linux.tar.gz (extract the file)chmod +x installer_linux.sh (tell the OS that it's okay to run this file)./installer_linux.sh (run it!)
