19.3 Definitive Wireguard installation

Post by NewWorldHero »

Where is there a definitive wireguard installation tutorial for Mint 19.3?
Been pulling my hair out for a month following my VPNs directions on how to run wireguard
but it it plainly states it must been done using the 'add new connection' in 19.3's
Network Manager. No such option to add and run wireguard. Im running 5.3.0-59 and have tried several 5.4 kernels.
No change.

Been to wireguard's site several times and the helps for Linux are waaaay over my comprehension.

Is it true Mint will not natively support or add wireguard until v20 is out?

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wireguard/wireguard
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wireguard

Wireguard is fully installed. Followed the sudo add as you showed exactly.
