[HowTo] Install ufw gui on DEVUAN 5

The well-known ufw firewall GUI is not available by default on devuan 5, so we will download the package from the Devuan Package View site:

wget http://deb.devuan.org/merged/pool/DEBIAN/main/g/gui-ufw/gufw_20.04.1-4_all.deb

To install the package:

sudo gdebi gufw_20.04.1-4_all.deb

And here is the firewall with a graphical interface.

There is no "Devuan 5". I think you mean Devuan daedalus, which is the current testing branch.

A "feature" of the testing branch is that sometimes transitions from the unstable branch are blocked and this leads to the package being removed. This is entirely normal and it happens regularly.

Here is the bug that has caused gufw to be blocked from the testing branch:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … ug=1012402

Once it is fixed gufw will be allowed to transition and it will become available in testing again. If it is not fixed before Devuan 5 is actually released then it will not be part of that release.

I based myself on what I read in "/etc/os-release"
