    Default Confusing libXss1 error

    While executing a shell script (Private Internet Access VPN)...

    Code:

    Installing dependencies...
    Running: sudo apt-get install -y libxss1 libappindicator1 libappindicator3-1 gconf2 net-tools

    - Did you mean libXss1?
    Package installation failed. Please make sure that your package manager is configured correctly and is still supported by your distribution vendor.
    But then...

    Code:
    # zypper in libXss1Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'libXss1' is already installed.

    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    
    Nothing to do.
    Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    I didn't know that apt-get was redirected to zypper and apt-get install to zypper install
    that script was written for a debian based system which has different naming schemes as you can see you do have libxss1 installed but as zypper install is case sensitive it wants the name to be libXss1
    afaik it should still install it (maybe you should open a bug report about this)
    you could edit that sh file and replace libxss1 with libXss1 but as that is a deb script I don't know if it will work

    And to add to what I_A has mentioned, PIA's software doesn't work on openSUSE. It is a pure ubuntu software. I wouldn't waste my time trying to get it to work.

    And I've been a very satisfied client of PIA. I'm on my third year with them.

    Well I've been using it on all openSUSE versions since 12.0. But I did have to get help from a kind soul at P.I.A. I really don't want to switch to Ubuntu after using SUSE since 9.3.

    Although Private Internet Access does not support SUSE products the following will bypass that problem


    ALL COMMANDS TO BE EXECUTED AS ROOT!

    1. zypper in openvpn
    2. cd /etc/openvpn (you might need to create the directory)
    3. wget https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...pn/openvpn.zip
    4. unzip openvpn.zip
    5. ls -l (to see a list of server config files)
    6. openvpn config-filename-goes-here.ovpn

    Happy trails!

    That's "exactly" what I do (so I'm not sure now what you were talking about originally).
    Although I've tried their software once (and stopped immediately because it was just too broken for my liking) I never use it.
    Of course I downloaded that zip file (I prefer using the one with strong encryption (openvpn-strong.zip) and use it, but have set it up thusly:

    cd /etc/openvpn
    unzip the aforementioned zip file
    create a config file (and name it myconfig) for my vpn session which has the following:
    client
    dev tun
    proto udp
    remote <my chosen server> 1197
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    cipher AES-256-CBC
    auth SHA256
    tls-client
    remote-cert-tls server
    auth-user-pass <location of my pass file>
    comp-lzo
    verb 1
    reneg-sec 0
    crl-verify crl.rsa.4096.pem
    ca ca.rsa.4096.crt
    disable-occ
    systemctl enable openvpn@myconfig
    systemctl start openvpn@myconfig

    I never have a problem with this setup.

    I followed these steps and I had to make one small modification in order to get it working. in the *.ovpn files that I downloaded from the PIA site, there is one parameter "compress" which needs to be changed with "comp-lzo" as in the example provided by
    kerijan2003. Just in case someone else needs it. My thanks to you.
