GlobalProtect on PoP_OS!

L1 Bithead

The checking for which type of Linux distro done ./ script is too narrow.  The script checks for *Ubuntu* (proper case) but some Ubuntu-based Distros (especially PoP_OS! from System 76) uses lower case "ubuntu" in the ID_LIKE variable.  Therefore, the needed dependencies for Debian/Ubuntu aren't run (the "yum"--wrong--ones are run).


I suggest this be addressed in the next version of GP.

I would open up a feature request with your SE so that this suggestion gets added into the internal system for feature enhancements/requests. PAN at the moment has very specific OS requirements when it comes to Linux, and while you can modify the installer to function on unsupported distros it's really not recommended or supported at all.
