installer nothing but rainbows and butterflys


I use a torgaurd vpn account on my laptop. The tech support isnt very knowledgeable
but the actual vpn account rocks. I had issues (f17) when I first tried to use this program and
sought the forums help. Yall did solved my issues and its been nothing but rainbows and butterflys since. I have now installed f18 kde and followed same instructions. It seemed to install correctly and placed a icon for program on my computer. When I click on icon nothing happens. Ive tried to run it from terminal and still nothing. Ran as root nothing. Can anyone help?
These are commands i used...

root@redhatlaptop timmytim# rpm -ivh '/home/redhatlaptop/Downloads/TorGuard_linux_3_81.rpm'
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sudo chmod a+x '/home/redhatlaptop/Downloads/TorGuard_unix_3_99FF.sh'
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sh '/home/redhatlaptop/Downloads/TorGuard_unix_3_99FF.sh'

Then you should probably first visit http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ll-4175440755/, explain in short how you got it running and then mark the thread "solved".

If the RPM package was properly built with all dependencies etc, etc than you should probably stick to using Yum: 'yum --nogpgcheck install /home/redhatlaptop/Downloads/TorGuard_linux_3_81.rpm'. Else you'll have to visit the vendors documentation again and ensure you have satisfied dependencies before using the 'rpm' command. Besides that TorGuard for unix seems to be at version 4_0_1 now. Find its changelog and see if that matters wrt F18 (software versions, dependencies, init vs Systemd, etc, etc).

Since your $PS1 suggests you're root already you don't need to prefix commands with 'sudo'. You also don't need to escape anything so you don't have to quote file names either.

Until you attach it or explain what it does we have absolutely no idea what that script is supposed to do. If you want to figure things out yourself you can run the script as
Code:
/bin/bash -vx /home/redhatlaptop/Downloads/TorGuard_unix_3_99FF.sh 2>&1 | tee /tmp/output.txt
and then read back "/tmp/output.txt".


Other than that:
- verify the package was installed (I don't know its name so I'll take the scenic route here),
- verify package contents,
- check if it has a Systemd target or an old school SysV init script,
Code:
PKGNAME=$(rpm -qa|grep -i torguard --qf="%{name}\n")
[ -z $PKGNAME ] && { echo "not installed"; exit 0; } || echo $PKGNAME
rpm -Vv $PKGNAME | grep -v "^\.\{8\}"
rpm -ql $PKGNAME | egrep "(init.d|\.target)"
- If it has a SysV init script then '/etc/init.d/NAMEOFAPPLICATION status' tells if it's started (else see 'chkconfig NAMEOFAPPLICATION'). Elif it has a Systemd target then 'systemctl NAMEOFAPPLICATION.target status' tells if it's started (else see 'man systemctl').
- If the service runs check its log file for clues.

*Note again that this is a closed-source package for a commercial service. You bought the service and that simply the means their helpdesk should be the first to help you, regardless of their quality of service. OTOH if you get sufficient help here to solve your problem then reciprocity is implied and expected. So again, please visit http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ll-4175440755/, explain in short how you got it running and then mark that thread "solved".

That isn't really a "solution": F17 was released May 2012 and will be EOL'ed in a few months, mid 2013.
