I am unable to install VPN unlimited on Ubuntu 18.04 despite following the instructions on the official website (the instructions are quite outdated as they pertain to Ubuntu 14.04). I am currently stuck as I am getting messages such as:

  user $  sudo dpkg -i vpn-unlimited_4.22-amd64_001_release_STANDALONE.deb
    Selecting previously unselected package vpn-unlimited.

    dpkg does NOT handle dependencies. Simply read the error messages. Identify the list of missing packages, and tell apt to install those packages for you (sudo apt-get install libcurl3 iproute). Then try installing the vpn-unlimited package again.

  • VPN Unlimited app is currently broken in 18.04. I've notified the developers and they're working on a fix (an updated app).

    @user535733 libcurl3 won't install on 18.04 due to libcurl4 being there, and hence, the VPN Unlimited app won't install.

    @Al-geBra go to my.keepsolid.com/products/vpn and configure and download individual VPN config files and that'll work for you until the app is ready.
