Wow, how unusual. Thanks for letting us know. That's really shocking. Goodness me, I wonder what may have caused that. If only I knew why and explained the reasoning behind it and posted links to information about it several times over the past six months on this package alone...

Hi, I had to add gpg --recv-key AFF2A1415F6A3A38

For this package to install - just FYI

Yes, thanks for this. I have been told the same on my distro (that there is no abnormal conflict).

Not shutting down properly the service before shutting down the computer was probably the reason of my computer crash because this was not "fair use". When I use the service more carefully, nothing happens.

Sorry for this.

If there is a packaging bug, we will fix it, but this isn't the right place for technical support. Please open a topic on your distribution's support forum.

I will say that conflicting with shutdown.target is a normal thing. It just means that running services should exit before system shutdown is completed.

After two days working non stop (service resuming after sleep) I experienced a computer crash. I had to fsck the distro from outside. On new start the clock was wrong and I had to manually correct it.

Please find this image which seems to confirm there is a "conflict" with this package.


Now the service is working again but I will stop it every time the computer goes to sleep. Let me know if you need some more information.

Just to report success using first
gpg --recv-keys AFF2A1415F6A3A38
before proceeding to compilation

The following "green tip" seemed to work but finally failed for unknown reason.
"Adding keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve to gpg.conf will automatically fetch keys from the key server as needed."

Thanks again for making this nice software available.

Thanks for the link and your quick answer.

The key is used by the developers to sign the download, and we use it to verify the download hasn't been tampered with.

See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Signature_checking
and for automating key retrieval, see the green tip at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GnuPG#Use_a_keyserver

Thank you for making this package available. I already use it with Linux Mint (64bits) but it's not my usual distro. Sorry for the French language. My compilation fails about a licence because of an "unknown public key AFF..."

The original proprietary software has no key problem because we enter a personalized key later on to make it work.

I really don't know what I am supposed to write and where...

Here is the end of the compilation:

==> Validation des fichiers source avec sha512sums...
expressvpnd.service ... Réussite
license-20161005.html ... Ignoré
==> Validation des fichiers source_x86_64 avec sha512sums...

expressvpn_1.1.0_amd64.deb.asc ... Ignoré
==> Vérification des signatures des fichiers sources grâce à gpg...
expressvpn_1.1.0_amd64.deb ... ÉCHEC (Clef publique inconnue AFF2A1415F6A3A38)
==> ERREUR : Une ou plusieurs signatures PGP n’ont pas pu être vérifiées.
==> ERREUR : Makepkg n'a pas pu construire expressvpn.
==> Relancer la compilation de expressvpn ? [o/N]

Ahh, I see the problem. I've put the commands in post_upgrade, which isn't run after the initial install. Will be fixed shortly.

Thanks for clarifying, scootz.
