How do you download or install software?

Yes, as far as I can tell, you have installed it correctly. But you have to load it from the terminal when you want to use it.

Later, if you want, we can figure out how to make a menu item, if you want it... or a desktop icon, or panel icon. These things can be done.

But not tonight. I'm old... I'm going to bed! :p:D

Have fun!


That is unusual....it is also a sign of a poorly crafted app
I don't know if it is poorly designed, I'm thinking since they aren't a big market name or maybe most of their customers are non Linux users they don't feel the need to do such. for what it's worth it does a good job for me and you can't beat the price. I don't download much but when I need to I like to know I'm elsewhere lol

I just installed surfshark on my own pc

The installed size is around 17kb

It does not have the ability to set a desktop or panel icon

Just out of curiosity, I looked at my own vpn (airvpn)...

It has an installed size of 8400kb

It will take someone with more knowledge than me to answer the question ...why ?

My guess is it transfers info off pc's and works with it elsewhere....that is a guess
