If you are interested in testing it, please follow the instructions below.
Setup and installation
Download the tarball:
$ wget https://codeberg.org/tblock/tblock/archive/alpha2-2.0.0.tar.gz -O tblock-alpha2-2.0.0.tar.gz
Extract the archive:
$ tar -xvf tblock-alpha2-2.0.0.tar.gz
Enter the source tree:
$ cd tblock
Download the latest patch:
$ wget https://codeberg.org/tblock/tblock/releases/download/alpha2-2.0.0/latest.patch -O latest.patch
Apply the patch:
$ patch -p1 < latest.patch
Build the package:
$ sudo make install
Sync the filter list repository and subcribe to the recommended filter list:
$ sudo tblock -Syf tblock-base
You can also enable the daemon with:
$ sudo systemctl enable tblockd --now
After installing and running the post-installation command, you can start using TBlock and try all its features.
The documentation is a good start if you don't know how to use it.
Before uninstalling, you need to restore the default hosts file:
$ sudo tblock -D
Then, in the locally cloned repository, run:
$ sudo make clean

I already have hblock
https:// github. com/hectorm/hblock
I disabled it(hblock -S none -D none) and run tblock
Are the can be in coflict? I did not get any error messages yet.
Also it seems hblock do not require sudo, but tblock do.
Yes, hblock and tblock are in conflict, because they both use the hosts file (/etc/hosts). For example, if you enable the tblock daemon, it won't let the hosts file be edited by another program or user. Every time you'll try to run hblock, tblock will automatically undo these modifications.
However, hblock also requires root access, because nobody can edit the hosts file except
root (it would be really dangerous otherwise). When hblock updates the online sources, it automatically calls sudo. With TBlock, you have to run it directly as root.
Thank you, got it
