I was able to install Cisco VPN AnyConnect client with no issue in Linux Mint 17. However, in Xubuntu 14.04, I get the following issue when I run, sudo sh ./vpn_install.sh:
Do you accept the terms in the license agreement? [y/n] y You have accepted the license agreement. Please wait while Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is being installed... Removing previous installation... /opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpn_uninstall.sh: 76: /opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpn_uninstall.sh: /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/manifesttool: not found mv: cannot stat ‘/opt/cisco/vpn/*.log’: No such file or directory Starting Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Agent... /etc/init.d/vpnagentd: 41: /etc/init.d/vpnagentd: /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnagentd: not found brock@brock-xubuntu:~/Downloads/anyconnect-3.1.06073/vpn$

The files that it says are 'not found' are actually there.

Then when I try to start the program via GUI I get:

In terminal I get:
brock@brock-xubuntu:/$ /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnui bash: /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnui: No such file or directory

And, I would be fine with using network-manager-vpnc to handle it if that would be the only solution. I only wouldn't know where to place the xml profile file from my institution.

Much thanks in advance!


I am able to connect by using OpenConnect. I recommend setting an alias for the following given it is a long command.

sudo openconnect --usergroup UserGroupName -u UserName VPNAddressOfMyInstitution.edu --no-cert-check

(You may not need to add the --no-cert-check argument.)
