A Proper ProtonVPN Linux Client With GUI
I would love to see a proper ProtonVPN Linux Client with GUI that looks similar to the Windows version and with the same features. The current Linux client does not look good and it's too much and not plain and simple like with the Windows version. Is there anyone else that are not happy with the current client and want a better one?

Absolutely. It lacks many features the Mullvad APP or ProtonVPN for Linux app have.
Also, I can't understand why they would go with Python for the Linux app. It is less reliable and less efficient.

After using the current Windows/Mac version of ProtonVPN app, the Linux version looks like a very early pre-alpha build that was lost in time... I hope ProtonVPN team dedicate more time to re-write the app, to make it like the other OS's versions.
I prefer the Linux client GUI; however, it doesn't play nice with Ubuntu 23.04 LTS desktop on the Raspberry Pi 4. Proton VPN does work flawlessly with the OS's native OpenVPN and Proton's configuration files, but you lose the GUI's bells and whistles. In fact, some of those bells and whistles (which are command lines in disguise) cause the OS instability and connectivity issues I repeatedly experienced in spite of supposed fixes and workarounds. So I'd welcome a properly functioning Debian-based Linux client on Pi 4 hardware.
It would be nice to re-write ProtonVPN Linux app with Qt Framework. Qt software is more stable and looks much better on all distributions. It's best crossplatform framework.
We have the GUI -- but it would be nice if it was more feature rich

There is am package RPM too, but you need to search a bit more on the internet ;)
Hope this helps!
