PIA Client failes to connect Linux Mint 18.2
Linux VPN Setup
I've just installed the PIA client on Linux Mint 18.2 and when I try to connect it shows as connecting but then after a minute of so it shows as disconnected. Any ideas or suggestions?
linux mint 18
Install it this way, very easy and works every time.
From the terminal in the PIA folder in your Home you put the tar file into:
1) Extract file:
tar -xvf pia-v74-installer-linux.tar.gz
2) Tell OS to proceed:
chmod +x pia-v74-installer-linux.sh
3) Run installer:
Use v74, no need for v75
the alternative to setting the eXecute bit (chmod +x) is just to pull the script file into the shell line-by-line:
(note: it's a '.' then a ' ' then the './' at the head of the line above)
martouf, this works flawlessly every single time. Every single time.
"this" .. you mean "chmod +x" ? i didn't say it didn't work. setting the execute bit tells the shell to automagically do something almost the same as ". ./yer-script.sh"
