I recently did a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 using the mini.iso and installing a headless CLI environment.

I then added the elementary os daily PPA and ran:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elementary-desktop

Reboot... and I now have a fully functioning elementary OS Loki Beta [yay] Full functioning... but network manager applet doesn't list VPN options after installing Open VPN.

for VPN I ran the sh script found here:

which worked fine in 14.04 despite it being intended for 12.04. The script did error at the very end with:

Restarting network manager..
Error: Object 'nm' is unknown, try 'nmcli help'.
Error: Object 'nm' is unknown, try 'nmcli help'.
Install successful!

I looked at the script... and those two lines just reference restarting the network manager [which I did manually... and it didn't fix the issue].

There's literally nothing after that in the script other than "echo install complete"

So, why, after a reboot... can I still not access my list of VPN connections?

Any workarounds would be much appreciated. THX


You are installing beta software so expect these problems. You should report them on LaunchPad instead of asking them here and they might fix it
