You can install the official one, I've done it several times on Arch both in my lab and with my corporate issued machine. 

Extract the tgz file from the support portal.

Locate the GlobalProtect_UI_tar-X.Y.Z.tgz within that directory and extract it.

Go to the extracted directory, execute sudo ./install.sh

It should install without issue

 

Also if using SAML auth you have to add the default browser config, or it will fail when passing the SAML prompts with the system rendering engine. 

To fix this edit /opt/paloaltonetworks/globalprotect/pangps.xml with sudo or root permissions.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<GlobalProtect>
       <Settings>
               <can-continue-if-portal-cert-invalid>yes</can-continue-if-portal-cert-invalid> 
               <default-browser>yes</default-browser>

Note: can-continue-if-portal-cert-invalid>yes</can-continue-if-portal-cert-invalid is required if you use *.gpcloudservice.com for your Prisma portal, otherwise you shouldn't set this option.
