Hi, I can't find a package of this program for Slackware / Salix, do you know how I can fix it?

Thanks

Try this:

* Download https://ocean.surfshark.com/debian/pool ... _amd64.deb
* Open the .deb file with engrampa
* Open the data.tar.gz file which is in there
* Go to usr/bin in the data.tar.gz
* Extract the surfshark-vpn binary somewhere
* Try running it

I haven't tried it, but it should probably work. If you put it in your /usr/local/bin, you should be able to run it as any other program.

I extracted the data.tar.xz file
simone [usr] $ ls
bin share
simone [usr] $ cd bin
simone [bin] $ ls
surfshark-vpn
simone [bin] $ sudo surfshark-vpn attack
Password:
sudo: surfshark-vpn: command not found
But it does not work.
Thanks

Is that /usr/bin ?

And are you perhaps on a 32 bit system?

You need to specify the path to the binary, unless you put it somewhere in your $PATH, like this:

from wherever you unpacked it, assuming the folder is named 'data' (but change that part accordingly)

Code: Select all

cd usr/bin
sudo ./surfshark-vpn attack
The ./ means "the current directory".

I'm assuming that attack thing is some kind of argument.

It works, I didn't put the file in usr /local/bin ...

Thanks
