tinc-applet

A minimalist gtk taskbar applet for tinc-vpn.

tinc-applet will:

  • list all nodes connected to your network
  • notify when nodes connect or disconnect
  • allow retry of all connections

Only works with the tinc 1.1 branch.

For Unity Ubuntu Users

Unfortunately, because of Unity's permissions "bug", you cannot start the applet with the root permissions it needs to access the tinc executables. The fix for this is setting the pidfile in the tincd process with --pidfile=/path/to/dir/tinc.pid and recursively set the owner of that directory to be you (e.g. sudo chown youruser:youruser /path/to/dir/). Hopefully, we can fix this in the future.
