    Anyone using it?
    https://launchpad.net/~shnatsel/ archive/dnscrypt

    It installs DNSCrypt, the required libsodium, and also an automatic start-up script for Ubuntu's upstart running on an unprivileged account with AppArmor.

    It basically takes the painful process of installing DNSCrypt on Linux and makes it extremely simple. After installing the PPA all you need to do is change your DNS IP to 127.0.0.2

    The only issue I had was I had to install it via the terminal, the Ubuntu software centre kept complaining that libsodium was from an untrusted location.

    Looks nice. All my traffic is only allowed through the VPN, so I can't/won't test, but a good option for those who use a DNS setup where this could help. Very easy set up!
