Global Protect new Linux UI

L4 Transporter

I have the GP Linux CLI client working without any issues, however I wanted to test the UI client that just came out (5.1.0) Does anyone know how to actually use this? The PAN documentation has not been updated to mention this new version or the Linux UI yet. Installing it goes fine but I do not see anything installed to my desktop and when attempting to launch it from a command shell all I see is:


"Unable to run GlobalProtect CLI while GlobalProtect UI is running. Please consider installing the CLI only install package."


Which is great... but how do I find and launch the UI from my desktop? *confused*

I *can* get the UI to work, but I have to uninstall and reinstall the entire package.    Once I connect from the UI, it disappears.    There's a file called PanGPUI in /opt/paloaltonetworks/globalprotect which I *think* is supposed to open the UI, but for me it just hangs.      Would love to hear if anybody can get this to work.

So a quick question for you and @LeoSimon, were either of you running the betas? I can confirm that it's broken on the final production release, but it has been working fine within the beta releases so it broke between the last beta release and the final production release. 

I was not on the beta. 


My main issue with this UI version is there seems to be no way of actually running it (no icon, no menu entry, the binary just complains about CLI mode). 


Maybe its just a fresh bug. 


It's a fresh bug. The betas displayed as you would have expected without much of an issue; it appears that the production release managed to break something. I would expect that this is fixed relatively quickly.
