Install NordVPN in Garuda Linux

Use NordVPN in Garuda Linux by getting your subscription ( https://nordvpn.com )and following the next steps:

First go to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nordvpn-bin/ and click to copy on the GIT link:

Open your bash-console emulator, and install GIT

sudo pacman -S git

then press “Y” when prompted.

After completing the GIT installation, proceed to download the NordVPN binaries using the Git Clone URL:

sudo git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/nordvpn-bin.git

Now use the “ls” command to find the directory:

Jump into that container

cd nordvpn-bin

List the files and directories, and use the “ls” command, you should have these files:

root is the owner, in order to compile the installation package, you need to change it.

you can use the “chown” command:

chown username:groupname FILE_NAME
#for example:
chown jhonnas:jhonnas PKGBUILD

Or, you can use the “mc” command to do it with the “Midnight Commander” (If you don’t have it installed, do it: sudo pacman -S mc

After changing the file ownership, now you can run the “makepkg -s” command:

use the “ls” command and copy the installation package file name (the file with .pkg.tar.zst):

Now, with “pacman” install NordVPN on your system, press “y” and “enter” when prompted:

The next step is to enable the NordVPN daemon using:

sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd

check the daemon status using “systemctl”:

It must be active (running)

The next step is to connect with your NordVPN account:

sudo nordvpn login

Now you are ready to connect with/through any of the available countries.

To list available countries use:

sudo nordvpn countries

To connect use “sudo nordvpn connect country_name” which is the same as “sudo nordvpn c country_name”. To disconnect use “d” instead (“sudo nordvpn d”) For example, I’ll connect from Serbia using “sudo nordvpn c Serbia”:

I hope that you can find this useful!
