nordvpn not installing

Post by wetchicken »

Greetings, everyone. First, thank you for the developers and contributors for such a fine piece of software. I don't think anyone can count the hours that have been spent on it. The integration between pieces has been amazingly smooth.

But... I think I have an anomaly. I am running the latest install from two days ago. I ticked nordvpn on the install screen, it appears to go through the install, I reboot, it gives the message to
- NordVPN status : DietPi-NordVPN is not configured! Please run: "dietpi-nordvpn",
but I can not bring up the dietpi-nordvpn config utility. It doesn't show in the dietpi-<tab> list, and find / -name nord* returns nothing.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Of course find / -name nord* didn't work... duh.
find / -name dietpi-nord* returned
/var/lib/dietpi/dietpi-software/installed/dietpi-nordvpn
/boot/dietpi/misc/dietpi-nordvpn
so a little tweak to the install script may be in order.

Thanks!

Hi,

there is a challenge with the alias atm. However using /boot/dietpi/misc/dietpi-nordvpn should give the config screen.

the direct command dietpi-nordvpn should get available as soon as you have configured NordVPN first time. At least that's how understood the developer. See GitHub https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issu ... -750325044

That's what I was expecting. All other programs functioned that way.

The behaviour of the alias will change on next version 6.35 and it will be available right for the beginning.
