PIA on PI3 Raspbian New Problem

Trying to install Private Internet Access on a PI3
Using there online instructions
https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/helpdesk/guides/desktop/linux/ubuntu-pia-app-setup

this the error message on get

./installer_linux/ruby/ruby.sh: 13: ./installer_linux/ruby/ruby.sh: ./installer_linux/ruby/32/ruby: Exec format error

the RPI3 is an arm device and the installer is trying to run a 32bit binary.

Your best bet is gonna be to just use the OVPN options

I was just looking at that myself. Use the openvpn option, the pia script has binary data in it by the looks of it, it won’t run on the pi.

Installation is complete!

Your missing uuidgen, you likely need uuid-runtime installed. (for whatever reasons apt doesn’t have a provides command, but that’s the package I found)

wlan not associated
when mouse is over up/down arrows for network
And when I click on it it just shows wifi on / off

The uuid-runtime install got rid of the message

still not getting the pull down menu for PIA

There is apt-file which does a similar job.

Yeah I saw that but I was looking for a way that didn’t require installing more apt commands

Do you really need pia client working, if I recall most of these are just wrapped OpenVPN clients you should be able to grab the config and modify it for your needs.

On manjaro I did a manual setup of the Openvpn.
With the new offerings of a, what looked like an easy install, was hoping this would be faster and easier to get done.
Doing the setup myself there is some limitations, you have to setup each new vpn location separately.
Just not that good with linux.
If anyone has some suggestion on how to make the PIA install work that would be great.
Thanks for the help

Tried to use this setup
Still can not get the pull down menu with the updown arrows

When I did the restart on the network manager I got this message

[email protected]:~ $ sudo service network-manager restart
Job for NetworkManager.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See “systemctl status NetworkManager.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

is there something here that would be the problem

You might just have to do this, it’s what I do on a normal system, I just add the exit nodes I want.

What does this say

Finding these items systemctl etc
Do not know where they are or where to find them sorry

What do you mean? What’s the output of systemctl status NetworkManager

It could be failing to start because of config changes you might want to undo the changes you made and see if its still having issues.

Do I just start a new install of raspbian
Then try to do the install of the PIA and see how that goes.
For me this is experimentation.
Plus trying to figure out what changes I made and undo them is way more then I know .
