Please create a PureVPN application for Linux (GUI based)77 votes
Hassan here from PureVPN, I am very excited to let you know that we are launching a GUI version of PureVPN’s Linux App in Beta!
We’ve selected you as one of the first to experience it.
- Download the Beta Build
- In Terminal, run this command:
- sudo apt install ~/Downloads/PureVPN_1.0.0_amd64.deb
What you’re going to experience:
- The new PureVPN Linux GUI app eliminates the need for command-line input. PureVPN’s simple and familiar user interface makes internet privacy and security easy.
- One-click dashboard VPN connection.
- PureVPN offers various locations worldwide. Connect via VPN to any country/city of your choice.
- The app lets you examine and manage account details. View and manage PureVPN subscriptions.
- We’re launching the PureVPN GUI App with OpenVPN functionality; you can connect via TCP or UDP.
While using the PureVPN Linux GUI App, I would love you to focus on and share feedback about:
I know linux users are still a minority but if you could include the ping test function (as in andoid) into the command line app then that's probably all what's needed. The linux community is well experienced and can write theire own scripts around your command line tool or even create a GUI frontend for it.12 votesAdminPureVPN (Product Team, PureVPN.com) responded
Thank you for choosing PureVPN for your desired VPN needs,
Thanks, we aim to provide a friendly service, the idea that you have suggested is absolutely fascinating.
We are adding this to our considerations and you will be updated once we are adding this feature.
Keep sharing your wonderful ideas !
the purevpn -c works but has to be started manually. Other VPN clients offer an autoconnect feature11 votes
It is no question that Linux users love choice, and some of the best distributions do not easily support .deb or .rpm packages. Namely, Gentoo, Arch, Void, NixOS, and Clear Linux. These are all unique distros that I like to use, and they all use various packaging methods. Luckily, flatpak is supported on all of them (see https://flatpak.org/setup/).
Please add flatpak as a package format for the Linux client, whether it is the current command-line version or a future GUI version. This would be incredibly helpful for so many users that use distributions other than Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, or…9 votes
the command purevpn -l shows the list of servers locations. It would be great if this list can be sorted accordingly to the speed of the ping test as in the windows app. That way you can infer which server are the fastest regarding with your own location.8 votes
We already have -l / --location to see the available countries but it would be nice to be able to choose the specific city to connect to.8 votes
when connrcting in terminal message pops up in red with a html link saying to download a new version but it is the same as the one already r6 votes
This will allow for easier scripting of the VPN in startup or shell scripts6 votes
The whole point of using the purevpn cli is to allow automation for vpn connection.
At the moment it's not possible to do so because we have to enter manually username and password each time.
We need some ways to feed those two information to purevpn -li command5 votes
I get a security alert with my google account because a different IP server address seems to be a new computer connection.
I would like to be always connected to the same PureVpn server.5 votes
I have to mess around trying to connect to p2p servers, it would be much easier to use; purevpn -c p2p5 votes
When I select Australia in the Linux Client on Ubuntu, I get connected to
Services: Network Sharing Device
Country: United Kingdom
Which is obviously not in Australia. It would be very helpful to have the option to select a specific city as you can on Windows. It seems like the "fastest" server is chosen automatically. for some reason you think this server is in Australia, so it will always be the fastest when connecting from Europe. This doesnt seem to be an issue for other countries like New Zealand or Vietnam, but…4 votes
in the cli, showing the syntax needed to connect to specific servers from your server list as well as a specific country (fastest server) currently the syntax to connect to a server is missing in the ubuntu cli app3 votes
When you buy an dedicated IP package you cannot connect to it via the linux app, and my current router doesnt allow PPTP passthrough so I cant manually connect either.2 votes
Why do i have to login to submit feedback and not just a string in the cli of linux, Also i see the killswitch is there but it doesn t work2 votes
It's probably an ubuntu problem, but the connection status is not displaying correctly in the status box in the upper right of ubuntu. When I check status is says vpn off and would not start, however on the command line it displays that I am connected. Thanks for your help logging in, I forgot to provide purevpn at the beginning of my username and couldn't log in, chat line was awesome and pretty quick to provide what I needed2 votes
Actual: pressing tab with this prompt:
lists the files in the current directory
Expected/wanted: pressing tab with this prompt:
lists the available options to the command-line app, e.g. --login, --connect, ...
