Linux-loving Ghosties, we have some excellent news for your: our updated CyberGhost VPN for Linux app is here!
And it now comes with WireGuard® capabilities. 😉
This is a fairly new VPN protocol, still labeled as a work in progress. It aims to marry the security of the OpenVPN protocol with the speed of (the now easier to block) IPsec.
When it comes to encryption, WireGuard® is all about the strictest security standards. It also comes with some extra benefits like faster speeds, more user-friendliness, and less power usage.
The beginning of a beautiful friendship
Here at CyberGhost VPN, we’ve been paying close attention to the development of WireGuard®. And we must confess, we’ve been impressed with the protocol’s performance.
So, we’ve decided to integrate it and get involved.
Our team will be performing code reviews and adding to the functionalities in the near future.
All because we want to give you the best possible VPN protection, no matter your device or OS of choice.
What else is new in the app
You can now find five additional distros and distro versions in our CyberGhost VPN for Linux app:
- Fedora 31
- Mint 19
- CentOS 7
Using something else?
Leave a comment below and let us know. We’ll plan our development accordingly. 😉
Update your app
To get the latest version of our Linux app, head to My account.
From there, configure a new device and select the app version that corresponds to your Linux distribution.
Then run the ‘install.sh’ installer and that’s it. 🙂
Until next time, stay safe and secure!

As a new customer I tried to setup my Linux Mint 21 PC as a first machine.
Trying to download the app (even though it’s for v 20) ends up in displaying
a xml structure starting with ‘AccessDenied’
When is a working version expected ?

The linux application is a bash command… Is it so difficult to make it works on the latest Ubuntu 22.04??? in one year, LTS 24.04 ???
I pay Cyberghost since 7 years. I can’t use it on my main Ubuntu laptop!!! Don’t know why ?
Posted on 28/02/2023 at 16:22
We’re sorry to hear you’re not satisfied with our service, Seb. Rest assured we’re working on improving CyberGhost VPN compatibility across multiple platforms.
Posted on 08/02/2023 at 12:14
Another one in the waiting list… CyberGhost in Ubuntu 22.04 ?
Any workaround or possible beta available ahead of the official app?
Posted on 09/02/2023 at 10:25
Hi A. Thank you for your feedback. At the moment, we can not guarantee a custom configuration that will reliably protect your Ubuntu device. However, you can try setting up CyberGhost VPN on your router which will protect all devices in your household.
Posted on 23/01/2023 at 00:55
I’m using Linux Mint 20.3. Like many of you, I wasn’t able to get the binary installer to work. However, I followed Adina Ailoaiei’s advice and followed the instructions on this page: https://support.cyberghostvpn.com/hc/en-us/articles/213651505-How-to-Set-Up-OpenVPN-on-Linux-Mint-via-Network-Manager
The directions worked perfectly for me. I’m connected (and I can’t believe it!).
Posted on 23/01/2023 at 12:02
Glad to hear you found a workaround for you, Todd.
Posted on 14/01/2023 at 22:24
It’s 2023 and still no update for Ubuntu 2204. What’s up? I guess I will have to buy another VPN. Bye.
Posted on 16/01/2023 at 10:33
We’re sorry to hear you feel that way, Michael. We’re working to extend CyberGhost VPN support for Linux distributions. Thank you for your patience.
Posted on 14/01/2023 at 21:53
To add to the numerous requests, any updates regarding CyberGhost in Ubuntu 22.04 ? Any workaround available ahead of the official app? Thanks!
Posted on 16/01/2023 at 10:33
Hi Dan. Unfortunately, we don’t have any other updates at the moment. Thank you for your patience.
Posted on 09/01/2023 at 04:01
When will CENTOS be upgraded? It is still on 7…. 9 came out in 2021.
If CG cant provide services for what they say, why can we not request a refund, and get our money back?
Posted on 09/01/2023 at 10:25
Thank you for your feedback, Dusty. We’re working on making CyberGhost VPN accessible to more Linux distributions.
If you are not satisfied with our service, you can request a refund as per our Money-Back Guarantee Policy.

I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 lately and I was suprised and very disappointed that CyberGhost was not compatible. I paid my subscription but can’t use it. Any update on a release date ? It’s very frustrating.
Posted on 04/01/2023 at 15:59
We’re sorry to hear that, Julien. Unfortunately, at this time, we can’t provide an exact time frame as to when CyberGhost VPN will be available for Ubuntu 22.04.
Posted on 30/12/2022 at 16:51
I use CyberGhost on Windows 11, but I also use Zorin OS Pro 6.2 (which is based on Ubuntu) and would like to have an official app.
Posted on 04/01/2023 at 15:59
Thank you for your feedback and suggestion, Karl.
Posted on 29/12/2022 at 11:56
How about Mint 21.1 Vera? When can we expect that?
Posted on 04/01/2023 at 16:00
Thank you for your feedback, Trelvin. I’ll be sure to pass it on to our dev team.
Posted on 22/11/2022 at 01:32
I am another person who upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04 to Ubuntu 22.04. I like CyberGhost and now I would like my paid CyberGhost VPN software to work once again on Ubuntu 22.04.
Posted on 23/11/2022 at 12:22
Thank you for your feedback, Megan. We’re working on making CyberGhost VPN available across more Linux distros. Thank you for your patience.
Posted on 28/10/2022 at 17:26
I too have been using Cyberghost since 2019 but LMDE 5 and Debian buster no longer work, I will be forced to switch to another VPN service despite having paid until 2025.
Every time I read that the “team” is working on it, or terms like in the future, wonderful promises but that doesn’t buy us anything….
I hope I can stay with you guys but fear not.
Posted on 31/10/2022 at 09:33
We’re sorry to hear you’re not satisfied with our service, Ed. Rest assured our team is working on extending Linux support. Thank you for your patience.
Posted on 24/10/2022 at 22:50
Debian and LMDE would be nice. The last i looked, none of the other installers worked for LMDE 5
Posted on 27/10/2022 at 10:24
Thank you for your suggestion, Ghostie!
Posted on 16/10/2022 at 20:37
Guyz, it’s october.
We NEED to have cyberghost VPN compatible for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS as it’s a sofware I paid for.
Since Ubuntu is most probably the most used OS in the world, as a customer I’m asking how many more months you need to release it.
Are you planning on doing that?
Posted on 18/10/2022 at 11:12
Hi Ghostie. We plan to update our Linux CLI app to include more distribution in the future but we currently don’t have an exact time frame as to when it will be available. Thank you for your understanding.
Posted on 14/10/2022 at 18:40
I have a PC with Windows OS and a laptop with Linux.
Can I install Cyberghost VPN on both machine with only one subscription?
Posted on 18/10/2022 at 11:13
Hi Rick. You can use a single CyberGhost VPN subscription on up to 7 devices at the same time.
Posted on 12/10/2022 at 07:43
I’ve been using your services since 2018 between android and windows. I just switched over to Fedora Linux and would like to request a software update regarding fedora 36/37. CyberGhost has been very good to me over the years and I would hate to jump ship.
Posted on 12/10/2022 at 10:04
Hi Ghostie. We’re happy to hear you’ve enjoyed CyberGhost VPN. Our team is currently working to extend support for more Linux distros. Stay tuned for future updates!
Posted on 26/09/2022 at 16:46
Still no news about ubuntu 22.04 version? This is very frustrating. The least you could you do is to provide subscribes with some kind of timeframe. How long should we wait? I think this is a fair question.
Posted on 27/09/2022 at 11:01
Hi Sema. Sorry to hear you’re not satisfied with our service. Unfortunately, at the moment we don’t have an available time frame. Thank you for your understanding.
Posted on 22/09/2022 at 12:53
I just updated my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 and can’t find a way to install Cyberghost VPN again.
How long it will take to get a version??
Posted on 27/09/2022 at 10:07
Hi Antonio. We currently don’t have an exact time frame for this. Thank you for your understanding.
Posted on 13/09/2022 at 08:50
i switched my windows to linux mint 21, cyberghost doesn’t support it, what should i do?
Posted on 15/09/2022 at 12:03
Hi Gog. Have you tried establishing a manual configuration to our servers? You can check our step by step guide or contact our Customer Support team for more information.
Posted on 09/09/2022 at 15:21
One more vote for Ubuntu 22.04. Very disappointed that it is not supported YET.
Posted on 12/09/2022 at 10:30
Thank you for your feedback, Dennis. We’ll make sure to forward it to our dev team.
Posted on 06/09/2022 at 13:00
I use Cyberghost for almost 2 years with Windows and Android devices. Also waiting for Linux Mint 21 support now… Hopefully soon. Regards
Posted on 07/09/2022 at 11:22
Thank you for your feedback, Georg. We’ll pass it on to our dev team.
Posted on 02/09/2022 at 17:50
Can you tell us when will Cyberghost work on Ubuntu 22.04 ?
It’s sad to pay for something we can’t use…
Posted on 22/09/2022 at 12:19
Hi Jean-Baptiste. Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact time frame at the moment. Thank you for your understanding.
Posted on 20/08/2022 at 19:43
Wouldn’t it make more sense if they kept the Linux version up to date? Most of the distributions are built with security in mind, compared to Windows.
Posted on 22/08/2022 at 11:57
Thank you for your feedback, Jacob. We’re working on expanding our Linux support in the future. Stay tuned for further updates!
Posted on 18/08/2022 at 23:14
Still no ubuntu 22.04?
been customer for years, but it seems i need a new vpn provider if i cannot use the service on updated laptop since months now

Hi Frong. Sorry to hear you’re not happy with our service. Rest assured that we’re working on it. Thank you for your patience.

Hi Stephen. Sorry to hear you’re frustrated with the situation. Rest assured that we’re working on it. Thank you for your patience.
Posted on 28/07/2022 at 20:02
When will it be available for Ubuntu 22.04? Is there any date? The last post asking this was around 4 months ago.
Also when will there be a GUI version?
Posted on 30/09/2022 at 11:33
Thank you for your patience. We can assure you that our devs are hard at work. Unfortunately, we cannot provide you with an estimate at the moment.
Posted on 22/07/2022 at 07:45
Going to have to move to another VPN
I have had Cyberghostvpn for 2 years now,
i primarily use Linux and the linux cyberghostvpn app lags so behind distro releases that by the time
the app is updated, 2 or 3 distro versions have already come out.
I along with many of the other linux users dont want to either be forced to use a distro 3 iterations old
or forced to just not have access to cybervpn while using our current distro
its quite ridiculous really.
Posted on 25/07/2022 at 15:35
Sorry to hear you’re not satisfied with out service. Rest assured, we’ve forwarded your feedback to our dev team, and they’re currently looking into a better distro support.
Posted on 22/06/2022 at 12:25
I don’t understand cyberghost’s roadmap, they don’t anticipate the release of ubuntu versions. Since April, it seems to me that you could have supported version 22.04!
Posted on 24/06/2022 at 10:12
Hi Jarno. Rest assured that our dev team is working on many projects to improve our service, and bring you the best anonymity and security tools for all operating systems. We’ll update our posts to reflect our newest releases. Stay tuned for updates!
Posted on 08/06/2022 at 00:14
Ubuntu 22.04 isn’t supported ?
I can’t connect to a serveur with a manuel configuration (same configured used with ubuntu 21.04) and the app isn’t fit to 22.04 version…
if someone has a solution…

Fedora not supported any more. The last supported version (Fedora 32) is unmaintained end-of-life since May 2021. (The current version is Fedora 36.)
Posted on 06/06/2022 at 15:22
Hi Johannes. Our team is aware, and is looking to expand support soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
Posted on 28/05/2022 at 08:55
I use Cyberghost on the ubuntu server because the Linux app is terminal based
But I wish there was a GUI app also available.
Posted on 06/06/2022 at 15:23
Thanks for your feedback, Amir. I’ll let our dev team know.

When will the CLI app support Linux Mint 21? Torrenting is terribly slow/frustrating through OpenVPN.
Posted on 22/08/2022 at 11:42
Hi Frank. We currently don’t have a timeframe for when the CLI app will be available for Linux Mint 21. We’ll forward your feedback to our dev team. Thank you for your understanding.

When will it be available for Ubuntu 22.04? Is there any date, roughly?

Hi George. We don’t have a date or a rough estimate at the moment. Thank you for your understanding.

I just buy a 3 years account.
I work mainly under Linux. Can you tell me when there it will be a GUI for this OS instead of the CLI ?
Posted on 27/04/2022 at 08:44
Hi Bruno! 👋
We don’t have an exact time frame for when a GUI will be available. Stay tuned for future updates!
Posted on 10/03/2022 at 11:26
any chance of getting a GUI for CyberGhost on Ubuntu? CLI is fine for me, but my SO just balks at it, so we have to keep on using WinDoze …. 🙁
Posted on 11/03/2022 at 09:53
Thanks for letting us know. I’ll make sure to forward your feedback to our dev team. 🙂
Posted on 27/01/2022 at 22:27
Do you have any plans on introducing Cyberghost for Vilfo VPN router? Most of your greatest competitors are preconfigured in their router software already.
Posted on 31/01/2022 at 10:08
Hi Juha, thanks for your feedback. We’re still looking into configuring CyberGhost VPN on different router firmware. Stay tuned for future updates!
Posted on 17/10/2021 at 22:47
Works on Fedora 34 ?
Posted on 18/10/2021 at 09:52
Hi Fernando! The app is only available for Fedora 29, 30, 31, 32, but you can try manually configuring a connection to the VPN server on your Fedora 34. For more details, head on over to our 24/7 support team.

I’ll be a plus one on Manjaro. I have to use vbecause of work policies, but i kinda want to use my vpn most of the time, not just when i’m free and I barely use a computer… son.. MANJARO PLEASE

Thanks for the feedback, Ignacio. I’ll pass it on to our dev team. 🙂

Whwn will you have an app for Debian 10?
Posted on 26/02/2021 at 14:39
Hi, Joe! Our dev team is still working on a CLI app for Debian.
However, we’ve heard from other Ghosties that they’ve been successfully using other config files on Debian, so maybe that’s also something you can try.

Hi, Zach! 👋 Our team is currently working on adding WireGuard® support for other distros as well. Stay tuned for future updates!
Posted on 30/12/2020 at 09:58
We definitely need an update to support other distros such as Manjaro. Any updated plans?

Thanks for your feedback, Alexis. I’ll make sure to pass it on to our dev team. 🙂
Posted on 08/01/2021 at 15:53
In Manjaro it works with the CentOs Version. I use it now and it work fine. But for sure, there should be something like a Flatpak or Snap Version, but dont know if its possible, also a Graphical Interface would be great…
Posted on 11/01/2021 at 15:41
We appreciate your feedback, Matthias. 🙂
Posted on 16/11/2020 at 21:00
I would like to know how you implemented Wireguard protocol ?
Because I’ve learned that it give a static IP adress, so it keep our real IP adress somewhere. In other words, the no-log policy could not work anymore.
Thank you for your reply.
John Do not so John Do.
Posted on 18/11/2020 at 12:57
Hi, John! 👋
We use a customized version of WireGuard®, with our own daemon on top of the protocol generating random IPs.
In bringing WireGuard® in line with other protocols, we were inspired by the behavior of OpenVPN and IPsec on Linux.
To learn more about how we protect the privacy of our Ghosties, here are some resources:

Does the WireGaurd have an Option forSmartphones of the Apple iPhones? In the near future… I am hearing Great things about this new improved VPN,..!
Also what about Nokia Android smartphones or smartphones that are less popular., but are of the same usefulness with less functionalities than the Other “Smartphones” I am most Interested in the quality and real ness also what are the qualities that make CYBER GHOST Better than the others we’ve ALL learned of.
Tone honest I Only was able to try the 7 Day FREE TRIAL ! I
Posted on 28/05/2020 at 15:01
Hi, Ghostie! You can find the WireGuard® beta version in our app settings on iOS devices. 😉 We’ll keep you updated as other operating systems will be supported as well.
Posted on 23/05/2020 at 08:12
Any estimate on when WireGuard will be available for Windows 10?
Posted on 26/05/2020 at 12:11
Hi, Mike! We don’t have an exact estimate, but our dev team should have a solution soon.
Posted on 21/05/2020 at 17:40
Will the Wireguard App run on ARM boxes as well ?
Posted on 27/05/2020 at 10:07
We’re planning on expanding WireGuard® support across different devices. Stay tuned for future updates!
Posted on 07/05/2020 at 21:11
your current linux app does not support Ubuntu 20.04
Will your wireguard app support Ubuntu 20.04 , and will it work on OpenWrt routers?
When shall we expect to try it out?!
Posted on 11/05/2020 at 10:55
Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. Our team is looking into implementing WireGuard® on different operating systems and implementing certificates for manual configurations. Stay tuned for updates!
Posted on 28/04/2020 at 22:30
Add faster support for windows,Android and fire tv also.

I am tired of OpenVPN and look forward to something fresh. I am using the newest Version of Mint and look forward to actively helping in the development of this venture. I am in volved with Canadian Indigenous communities and it is imperative that we take back our internet.

Will we be able to use the native wireguartd clientor only your provided one?
Posted on 10/02/2020 at 11:09
will we also be able to connect via the native wireguard client,
or only your provided one?
Posted on 13/02/2020 at 21:01
I am also interested in this. It would be very useful for setting Wireguard up in router as well, where the gain in performance will be the most significant
Posted on 03/03/2020 at 13:34
Yes, it’s possible. The procedure for connecting to a selected server is rather simple. I’ve been able to recover the inner operations of this CLI tool while troubleshooting it.
Posted on 13/04/2020 at 13:11
that sounds great.
Would you care to share your findings?
