Hello I am a noob to linux and to manjaro, I was converted from windows so im struggling…
I have already read the other relevant topics but cannot understand how to fix the problem…
I am trying to install Mullvad VPN via the “add/remove software” program.
I have AUR arch repository enabled and see there are several versions of the VPN…
Due to the higher number of votes, I chose this package:
AUR (en) - mullvad-vpn
…BUT when i attempt to install it i see a error message in regards to the “PGP signatures”
==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg…
mullvadvpn-app git repo … FAILED (unknown public key 78CEAA8CB72E4467)
mullvadvpn-app-binaries git repo … FAILED (unknown public key 78CEAA8CB72E4467)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
Failed to build mullvad-vpn
I did try to follow the instructions on the arch package + mullvad website to verify the signatures,
Verifying signatures - Guides | Mullvad VPN
However I have never done this before & I am not sure what I am doing…
I already “trusted” as #5 ultimate via command:
gpg2 --edit-key A1198702FC3E0A09A9AE5B75D5A1D4F266DE8DDF
BUT i do not understand how to “verify”?
I downloaded the “code signing key” from mullvad…
BUT i am not downloading from the mullvad website but rather the AUR repository
So i dont understand how/when/where to use this code?
Also I am confused because I am in between the terminal & the add/remove software windows
Do these two programs communicate? Do i have to do the install in one or the other?
If i start in terminal would I have to manually install everything there?
On the mullvad website on verifying signatures they say to put in terminal:
gpg2 --verify MullvadVPN-*.asc
BUT what code goes here?
I got this from the pkgbuild file of the program
THANKS in advance!
