Installing NordVPN


The various wikis and “how to” dealing with how to install NordVPN seem to me very complicated. :face_with_thermometer:
I was able to install NordVPN very easily as a Firefox extension: two clicks and it’s done! :wink:
Everything seems to be working perfectly.
Did I miss something?
note: Mac-Mini 7.1 + EOS Gnome

With the Firefox addon, only the traffic from your browser will go through the VPN server.

If you want to set up the VPN system-wide, then you would either need to use the CLI tool as described here:

or to set it up using your NetworkManager:

Please note that the command lines given in the link above are for Debian/Ubuntu (-based) systems. You need to use the equivalent of them for Archlinux.

Thank you for your reply,
I admit I don’t know how to install NordVPN with “Network Manager” on Gnome!

Apart from the NetworkManager which is already installed in your system, you would need the package networkmanager-openvpn which would enable you to import the .ovpn config files provided by your VPN provider and set up the VPN connection.

It is described in the link I posted in my previous post.

Thank you again,
I will try that this evening or tomorrow and let you know.


Bon courage!
