Brien,

Thanks for checking that out. I will play around with the KeepSolid repos
after they get back to me.

I think they may not use repos anymore, as these instructions (
https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/en/info/manuals/linux) just have people
download the .deb and install it when there is an update. Very strange.

Thanks!

Mark
