Windscribe 2.0 desktop client for Windows, Mac and Linux

Overview

Windscribe 2.0 Desktop Application

This repo contains the complete source code for the Windscribe 2.0 app. This includes installer, service/helper, backend process and GUI. Please note that this is a work-in-progress, your mileage may vary.

Windows

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10.
  • Recommended 120+ GB of storage.
  • Install git (https://git-scm.com/downloads). When installing Git, you can stick with all the default options presented to you by the installer.
  • Clone the repository.
  • Visual Studio Community 2017 (run install_vs.bat with admin rights from /common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Python 2.7x (run install_python.bat with admin rights from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Active Perl (install from https://www.activestate.com/products/perl/downloads/ or execute this code snippet).
  • CMake (run install_cmake.bat from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • CppCheck (run install_cppcheck.bat with admin rights from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Verify the following entries are in your System PATH environment variable. If they are not, add them to the System PATH environment variable. Reboot.
    • C:\Python27
    • C:\Python27\Scripts
    • C:\Perl64\site\bin (or equivalent Strawberry Perl site\bin folder)
    • C:\Perl64\bin (or equivalent Strawberry Perl bin folder)
    • C:\Program Files\Git\cmd
    • C:\Program Files\Cppcheck

Install build script dependencies

  • On Windows 10, you will have to go to 'Manage App Execution Aliases' in System Settings and disable app installer for python.exe and python3.exe
  • python tools/bin/get-pip.py
  • python -m pip install -r tools/requirements.txt

Install signing certificate

  • Copy your PFX code signing file to installer/windows/signing/code_signing.pfx.
  • Edit tools/build_all.yml and enter the password for your PFX file in the password_cert field of the windows_signing_cert section.
  • Note that the application will still build and run without these signatures, but using the VPN without signatures will require a debug build.

Build libraries

Go to subfolder tools/deps and run the following scripts in order. Libraries will be placed in build-libs.

  1. install_jom
  2. install_openssl
  3. install_qt
  4. install_cares
  5. install_zlib
  6. install_curl
  7. install_boost
  8. install_lzo
  9. install_openvpn
  10. install_wireguard
  11. install_stunnel
  12. install_protobuf

Notes

  • Some libraries depends on others. Jom is installed first and speeds up further builds. Almost all of the libraries depends on openssl. Openvpn depends on LZO. Curl depends on openssl and zlib.
  • If you notice install or build scripts fail for seemingly no reason, try running each script from a fresh shell instance (CMD or gitbash). It appears to have something to do with a character limit on PATH or ENV variables.

Build the Windscribe 2.0 app

Go to subfolder tools and run 'build_all'. Assuming all goes well with the build, the installer will be placed in build-exe. You can run 'build_all debug' for an unsigned build. Note that an unsigned build is required to connect the VPN when building without code signing.

Mac

Prerequisites

  • MacOS Catalina or MacOS Big Sur (We recommend building/developing only on a native machine. VM setups are not well tested)

  • Recommended 120 GB of storage (Need to take a closer look at this number, we may be able to get away with as little as 80GB)

  • Install brew (brew.sh)

  • Install Xcode 11.3.1 if using MacOS Catalina, or Xcode 11.7 if using Big Sur

  • git (https://git-scm.com/downloads). This step is optional, as git is bundled with Xcode.

    • brew install git
  • Clone the repository.

  • Install Auto-Tools and 7-Zip (See below "Install Auto-Tools")

  • Install Wireguard build tools (brew install go)

  • Install CppCheck (brew install cppcheck)

  • Install dropDMG from: https://c-command.com/dropdmg/

    • Create symlink for dropdmg
      • ln -s /Applications/DropDMG.app/Contents/Frameworks/DropDMGFramework.framework/Versions/A/dropdmg /usr/local/bin/dropdmg
    • Run the DropDMG app and accept the update command-line tools prompt
    • Disable auto-update
    • Enable "Quit when done" in Preferences->Advanced
    • Copy desktop-v2/common/prepare_build_environment/mac/DropDMG/Configurations and Layouts into ~HOME/Library/Application Support/DropDMG/Configurations and Layouts
  • Install cmake (3.20.1 last tested) from: https://cmake.org/download/

  • Install python deps:

    • python tools/bin/get-pip.py
    • python -m pip install -r tools/requirements.txt

Set up code signing for release builds

  • Install your Developer ID signing certificate in the Keychain.
  • TBD...

Build Dependencies

  • Open a terminal in desktop-v2/tools/deps:
  • Run install_openssl
  • Run install_qt
  • Run install_cares
  • Run install_boost
  • Run install_curl
  • Run install_lzo
  • Run install_openvpn
  • Run install_wireguard
  • Run install_stunnel
  • Run install_protobuf
  • Run install_gtest

Notes on building libraries:

- Some libraries depends on others. Almost all of the libraries depends on openssl. Openvpn depends on LZO.
- The install scripts put the dependencies in desktop-v2/build-libs.

Build the Windscribe 2.0 app

Open a terminal in desktop-v2/tools and run './build_all' for a signed build, or './build_all debug' for an unsigned build. Please note that a signed build requires you to have completed the 'Set up code signing' section above. Assuming all goes well with the build, the installer will be placed in desktop-v2/build-exe.

  • Close to tray feature request

    Close to tray feature request

    Hi there.

    The Windscribe app on Ubuntu doesn't have a "Close to tray" feature, so you have to keep the window opened and if you try to close it, the process will end and it won't continue in the background. Can you add it to the program?

    Thank you for developing this app.

    Fix minimize bug on ubuntu

    Hi dear windscribe developers thanks for new gui app for linux

    this app has a bug and that is that we can't minimize this app to system tray. it should always be open and when we want to just close the app, it ask us if we want to close windscribe and then it completely quit and stopped the app. we have a similar "start minimized" section in settings but I don't know what is it!

    It was great if when we click on close arrow in the app, it just minimized the app to tray and if we want to quit the app we do it by right click on tray icon and press "Exit"

    best regards

  • Windscribe stops and disables firewalld

    Windscribe stops and disables firewalld

    Why does Windscribe stop and disable the firewalld during installation?

    I'm running Fedora 36 KDE. According to Fedora docs considering the benefits of firewalld, I don't think Windscribe completly nuking it is a good thing.

    I have had connection problems (the exclamation mark saying "limited connectivity") after installing the Windscribe rpm and I couldn't connect to internet without enabling Windscribe first.

    Since then I've manually enabled firewalld again and everything has been okay, and Windscribe does still work (surprisingly).

    So it is really necessary to stop and disable firewalld?

    I think this issues might be related as well: https://github.com/Windscribe/Desktop-App/issues/2 https://github.com/Windscribe/Desktop-App/issues/56

  • GUI broken on wayland

    GUI broken on wayland

    On wayland the GUI has is quite unusable, some buttons do not work (eg close, minimize), parts of the gui freeze, very difficult to drag the window.

    Investigating I have noticed that on my system it uses xwayland.

    So I tried launching it with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland, it shows:

    QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland /opt/windscribe/Windscribe
    [{gmt_time}      0.000] [qt.qpa.plugin]	Could not find the Qt platform plugin "wayland" in ""
    [{gmt_time}      0.000] [default]	This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
    
    Available platform plugins are: xcb.
    
    zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped)  QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland /opt/windscribe/Windscribe
    
    

    Other QT apps like dolphin work fine for me and natively under wayland.

    [Request] Official build for Opensuse

    There is literally no official VPN app for Opensuse apart from NordVPN, yikes!

    Opensuse has been around as long as Ubuntu and us users have to go by using openvpn from every other major VPN provider.

    Its also supports .rpm builds. So, please build an official app for Opensuse, if its only for the Tumbleweed version its good enough!

  • Please add a silent switch to the uninstaller.exe executable file.

    Please add a silent switch to the uninstaller.exe executable file.

    Currently, when you launch the uninstaller from the command line, there is no way to prevent the ugly GUI from showing on the screen. The install.exe file for Windscribe already has a silent switch, which is, -silent. But the uninstall.exe file does not. Will the developers eventually add a silent switch to the uninstall.exe file?

    The reason I am asking for this is because I am currently creating an app manifest (that installs WindscribeVPN) for the Scoop package manager. I want the install, and uninstall process to be completely silent. Or else it will ruin the user experience for anyone else who tries to use my app manifest to install WindscribeVPN.

    This is the command I used:

    Start-Process "C:\Users\krist\scoop\apps\windscribevpn-np\2.4.11\Windscribe\uninstall.exe" -WindowStyle 'Hidden' -Verb 'RunAs' -ArgumentList '/SILENT' -Wait
    

    This is the result of that command: (WindowsTerminal)a3c4A1_10-13-2022

    Windscribe 2.5+ in RHEL/Alma/Rocky 8 (glibc 2.28 vs 2.29)

    Hi, seems like a new version (2.5.11) doesn't work anymore on RedHat 8 based distros.

    RHEL8 (and all clones), which is supported till 2029 uses glibc 2.28 and windscribe 2.4 was working there.

    New windscribe 2.5 as I understand needs glibc 2.29.

    Is the glibc bump because of some specific function or was it bumped just to use new version? Is there a chance for lowering requirements to glibc 2.28?

  • Change /usr/local/bin/windscribe to /usr/bin/windscribe

    Change /usr/local/bin/windscribe to /usr/bin/windscribe

    Currently, the Linux binary gets installed to /usr/local/bin. This is less than ideal for a variety of reasons:

    • It's not where it's supposed to be in the Filesystem Heirachy. /usr/local/bin is supposed to be used for binaries compiled by the user themselves, not binaries distributed by a vendor like Windscribe.
    • /usr/local/bin does not play well with immutable distributions. This directory does not work with rpm-ostree at all, and as such it would be impossible for Silverblue/Kinoite users to use Windscribe's VPN app. I haven't tested if this works on openSUSE MicroOS yet, but it is guaranteed to break transactional updates on all openSUSE variants. /usr/local/bin is in its own BTRFS subvolume and does not get rolled back along with the rest of the system by Snapper. If a user does a snapper rollback, they will end up with a system where the binary in /usr/local/bin is newer than whatever zypper thinks it is.
    • This also does not play well with Qubes OS's TemplateVMs. /usr/local/bin is not a persistent directory on Qubes TemplateVMs, and will get lost when the user creates an AppVM based on it.
