Background services error mozilla vpn on arch linux
Hi, I installed mozillavpn on arch linux but when I try to connect it reports a "background services error". The package in AUR seems to cover all the required dependencies so I don't think I am missing anything. This is the log file after the error occurred.

After checking your logs, it looks like the mozillavpn linuxdaemon app is not running. This is the service that controls the VPN and is executed via the dbus with root permissions. It seems like the package was compiled but not executed correctly.
The VPN team noted that Arch linux does not have an official package, thus you would have been compiling the package yourself correct?
You should check if the mozillavpn daemon is running as root privileges. This is by default in the Mozilla VPN packages, but for other distros, it can be different.
The team suggested you try running this command: sudo killall mozillavpn; sudo mozillavpn linuxdaemon
