I’d like to use Nord Vpn on Manjaro. Unfortunately Manjaro OS is not officially supported by Nord Vpn, because it is a community-based distro. (this is what the Nord Vpn guys told me, I know, it is a pity).
I have seen this option (and also some others):
What about this?
I have seen also this other topic:
I do not use nordvpn-bin, but I am using openvpn of NordVPN.
There is the list of OpenVPN:
OpenVPN configuration files | NordVPN It is pretty more stable than nordvpn-bin, but no need automatically select IP on connection.
Please do not read my post that is not about “How to setup NordVPN”
My old comment/post has been split from the main thread [root tip] [How To] NordVPN on Manjaro
Can you please help me out. Given the popularity of NordVPn I think a “how-to” tutorial for beginners would be very appreciated. I haven’t found it in the forum so far.
think this is a I very good article about it. And since it’s the Arch wiki, I think it’s accurate and applies to Manjaro.
@linux-aarhus also uses Nord VPN, so chances are he knows more than me about the subject.

There is a package called
nordconnect in the AUR — it depends on
openvpn. You can try that, along with the tutorial by
pamac build nordconnect
yay -S nordconnect
NordVPN on Manjaro

What this topic is not
This is not a topic on installing NordVPN
But what is it
It is a topic on setting up Manjaro to ensure the nameserver settings is restored on disconnecting NordVPN and a topic describing how I did the troubleshooting.
Assumptions and prerequisite
You have installed nordvpn using the custom package nordvpn-bin
You have added yourself to the group nordvpn

Or you use
which is more or less in the same company umbrella as Nord and you have 100% supuport as we are partners and have the graphical UI in our official repositories. Your subscription would even support the Manjaro project, as we get a cut of the sales. Surfshark VPN

it is always amazing to see quick support from you.
I tried a bit, and in the end I had success with this:
The steps are simple and it is just necessary to change the “apt-get” with the proper “pamac” for Manjaro. Not sure if using openvpn is the best setup, but it works.
My 2 cents: you could install the package from
AUR (en) - nordvpn-bin and on the command line you can enable Wireguard ( What is NordLynx? | NordVPN support) with
nordvpn set technology NORDLYNX
