I've been trying to install Forticlient VPN on LMDE 5 (Debian Bullseye), and it failed on dependencies for libappindicator1.
Reading another post apparently from what I understood Mint removed that library, so I proceeded to install it.

Now I try to install Foticlient VPN (7.0.0.0018):

Not sure where to go from here. This is a fresh install, following another post I first tried to install libindicator7 downloading the package, same for libappindicator1, which suggested to use already existing package on repositories, so I uninstalled everything and used the command line to install with apt-get. Same error.
Even though there's this error, Forticlient VPN installs and works, but leaves your libraries messed up, and:
sudo apt-get install -f
forces you to uninstall Forticlient. Any clues?
