Also, the above link is indeed an affiliate link. Should you sign up at the affiliate link for PIA above, I get a small piece of that revenue.
Okay, disclosure done. Let’s do this. Start off by looking at this image here. Heck, open it in a new tab. you’ll likely want to make sure what you’re doing matches the contents of that image.
Note the following:
1) Use AppEditor to make sure you’re running the right file. https://github.com/donadigo/appeditor
2) The targeted run.sh in
at the VERY top of the file. Also verify your export options in the file match mine. Save and close scratch.
3) Reboot your computer.
4) From a terminal, run /home/$USER/.pia_manager/pia_manager/run.sh You’ll see
pia_nw: no process found
ERROR:browsermain_loop.cc(267)] Gtk: IA_gtk_widget_add_accelerator: assertion 'GTK_IS_ACCEL_GROUP (accel_group)' failed
And then you should see the icon appear next to the other icons in the panel.
This works on Elementary OS running the 4.13.0-31-generic #34~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP kernel and PIA app v74.
