Is it still possible to connect through the network applet somehow? I installed network-manager-openvpn-gnome, but I can't find anything in the network settings. There is only the "Proxy" option under virtual. Has support for managing VPN connections through GUI been dropped?

Thanks for any help!

  • is that working now?

Currently elementaryOS's Switchboard Network Plug doesn't support VPN connections.

This question have been previously asked before (No GUI Access to VPN Connections | OpenVPN | 16.04 Loki Beta Daily PPA)

Since then the Devs have been notified and currently there are 2 bug reports about this:

Keep in mind that Loki is still in beta and under development.

I can only advise you to check the above bug reports and mark them as "Yes, it affects me" under "This bug affects # persons. Does this bug affect you?"
