protonvpn-cli not working

I am trying to connect to protonvpn-cli. After running the connect command the app freeze and I get the following error in the log file:

2023-04-30 11:09:26,630 — — ERROR — __dynamic_callback:124 — Exception: nm-manager-error-quark: Could not find source connection. (2) Traceback (most recent call last): File “/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/protonvpn_nm_lib/core/connection_backend/nm_client/”, line 117, in __dynamic_callback (callback_type_dict[callback_type][“finish_function”])(client, result) gi.repository.GLib.GError: nm-manager-error-quark: Could not find source connection. (2)

Any idea how to solve this?

Heya @dovevgo,

Looking at the error message provide, the issue seems to be related to the NetworkManager integration. The error message Could not find source connection suggests that there might be a problem with your NetworkManager configuration or the way the ProtonVPN CLI client is interacting with NetworkManager.

Do you have the logs of your NetworkManager as well? They should give us a more detailed picture
