Tried installing Proton VPN Messed up my laptop in a bad way

Yesterday as a new member of protons premium package I went to install the GUI applications first but after those wouldn’t work (kept asking me for password, which I think I’d the proton pgp after decryption). Anyways I went to uninstall the GUI applications and then went to the CLI uninstall page and followed the commands. I felt like even now it was asking me for a password to continued urse, no not my admin password.

Now today I can’t connect to my bitwarden application it keeps saying failed to fetch and to connect online it won’t take the password I to my WiFi I’ve been using for 2 months now.

Somewhere along the way of the proto. Install/uninstall I fucked up here are the sites I used to do both. My goal is to get proton comrtelt off laptop, be able to use the WiFi and bitwarden app and install clamav moving forward.

Here’s the link I uses yesterday for proton install/uninstall.

Inatall flatseal app and see if bitwarden have the network access permission.

This does not clear

I have no network access it won’t let Mr connect st all it keep asking me for password yesterday before I uninstalled. I uninstalled anyway and Noe I think my system won’t connect. Here the commands I followed yesterday. After the GUI kept asking for 0asswor(i think it was the proton pgp key, the CLI did the same so I went with the unistall options now GUI for Bitwarden won’t load nor will my network connect

Proton completely* off and get system back working/connected.

I use protonVPN on my Fedora 36 KDE. Very good tool that I trust. Forget the GUI, it has huge memory leak problems that I reported several times and take enormous amount of memory anyway. I just use the CLI, which is very well done and takes very little memory : it works very well up to now. On Manjaro, I had several times a day a 30-60 sec where the network did not respond. I dont know why. On Fedora , all is OK
