ZachBacon added a comment to D2278: Fixed lightscreen building, runs, added desktop launcher..

So this does work, however tray icon under budgie panel does not show for some reason, but in other environments like plasma, mate and gnome shell it does without a doubt. Gonna try and investigate it, but there is an in program switch to not use tray icon that users can toggle. But ideally I would like to try and figure this out.
So 3/4 desktop environments it works with the tray icon enabled and shows a visible icon.

Closing as resolved. I'd like to see more consideration be put in from the VBA-M devs in ensuring existing configurations more gracefully upgrade / are supported for newer releases. Having our users experience these issues is not ideal.

At the moment especially if you have an nvidia card, there needs to be cuda support in place. For the time being that's currently a blocker till cuda support is landed. Or I would think. @ikey would probably be best to answer that I think or someone else on the team.

since the source code is in a tarball format, it should be built properly and not extracted from a debian package. Also for future reference, do not assign Josh to the report, it isn't good practice, he has enough on his plate as is to have another thing shoved on.

Versioned tarballs are inside the zip file.

No those a pre-compiled binaries inside those zip files, debs and rpm's and standalone zip files. That isn't a proper versioned tarball. It isn't even a source tarball.

ZachBacon added a comment to T2428: Safejumper.

So I'm gonna weigh in. Ikey of course has the final say.
But no versioned tarballs of any sort of than when clicking the linux link it just downloads a zip file with no versioning what so ever. If anything the patches they use should be upstreamed into openvpn where the rest of the world can benefit and on top of that you, technically one can import the openvpn configs into openvpn itself or the network-manager openvpn plugin.
I honestly don't see much value in a openvpn wrapper like this.
