When I install dnscrypt-proxy, I found no dnscrypt-proxy.service here.

I write a bash to launch it, and write a desktop file here, ~/.config/autostart/dnscrypt.desktop


zenity --password --title="sudo"|tr -d '\n'|sudo -S dnscrypt-proxy -R cisco -a -u `whoami`

But it no work after input password. I can not found gksudo and gnome-keyring-query in the repo, so I use zenity.


The distribution tarballs include a sample dnscrypt-proxy.service.

Alternatively you can just use the one suggested in the official binary packages -- adjust the paths as required

Description=DNSCrypt client proxy

ExecStart=/usr/local/sbin/dnscrypt-proxy /etc/dnscrypt-proxy.conf

  • paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/… Considering that the dnscrypt-proxy is missing some files and not a complete package, I would like to install dnscrypt-proxy-gui. but this package is depend on so many packages, I hesitate.

    Ouch, this package is very incomplete indeed. A lot of features are not available and the server won't even start with the default configuration file. May 24 '17 at 12:46
