Windscribe Install

Hey so I tried installing Windscribe and am not sure if I succeeded.
I used the “Add/Remove Software”- Application with enabeld access to AUR to build the package.
Then I followed the Steps in the ReadMe which all succeded.
I was able to confirm in the terminal that windscribe is running, connected and could see that my IP address changed.

However, I expected to have a windscribe application installed as well, that I could run
I can’t find any ant the find application also not.
Did I do anything wrong or is windscribe for linux supposed to run in terminal only?


I only found a package called “windscribe-cli” . The description for this package is “Port of Windscribe’s command line interface”. This sounds like a CLI only application. Also the Linux part of the download section looks like CLI only.

You should be able to use

windscribe status

to see a status of the current state.

thank you for clearing this up! I did not know that cli meant command line interface only.
Looks like i set it up correctly then and there is no visual application.
Thanks for saving my time!
