Hi, I tried to install the Debian client http://trial.pulsesecure.net/clients/ps-pulse-linux-5.3r1.0-b587-ubuntu-debian-installer.deb on Linux Mint 18.2 by the command line, but I get this error:


Configurazione di pulse (5.3)...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/pulse.postinst: riga 240: [: =: atteso operatore unario


How could I solve it?

Thank you very much!
Antonio

It is failing while trying to find the Linux operating system type. Looks like Mint is not yet supported

That said, the script /var/lib/dpkg/info/pulse.postinst at line 240 is expecting to find the debian major version. If the content of /etc/debian_release has something like for example 8.8 (for debian 8 as the major version), the script would pass through that line

    On Linux Mint that file does not exist. Could you kindly provide me a valid one to try again the installation?

    Thank you very much!

The following works for me:

pulse-MyMachine ~ # cat /etc/debian_version
9.1
pulse-MyMachine ~ # dpkg -i ps-pulse-linux-5.3r1.0-b587-ubuntu-debian-installer.deb
Selecting previously unselected package pulse.

    It works! :)

    Unfortunately now I get this error "/usr/local/pulse/pulsesvc: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-keyring.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    Could you help me again?

    Thank you!

    Could you try installing libgnome-keyring as follows:

    sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring0 libgnome-keyring-dev

    That would bring the shared object in the right folder
