I'm on Loki and got the same problem. Apparently I solved using the RoboLinux installation method as listed on PIA support site. I'm connected to VPN right now. Hope this helps.

Finally got the VPN working after finding the answer in the following link: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1394977 The network manager somehow uses nm-applet (which does not run by default) to access the VPN secrets. You can add nm-applet in the System Settings > Applications > Startup by adding the custom command /usr/bin/nm-applet

I added network-manager-vpnc and network-manager-vpnc-gnome with apt-get install. After that I am able to add the Connection with GUI tools.

I found a solution for this Install PIA as seen on the site. Then edit pia_manager.desktop sudo nano ~/.local/share/applications/pia_manager.desktop And alter the line Exec=/home/bats/.pia_manager/pia_manager/run.sh So it becomes like this: Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity /home/bats/.pia_manager/pia_manager/run.sh The icon will then appear on the ...

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: https://bugs.launchpad.net/switchboard-plug-networking/+bug/...

This worked for me: First install the following dependencies: sudo apt install git intltool libtool network-manager-dev libnm-util-dev libnm-glib-dev libnm-glib-vpn-dev libnm-gtk-dev libnm-dev libnma-dev ppp-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libsecret-1-dev libgtk-3-dev libglib2.0-dev xl2tpd strongswan libnss3-dev Issue the following on the command-line (note: the ...

Also not an expert but long story short, it takes a couple of measures. I've been using the following tool in combination with NordVPN, which seems to performs these measures automatically. https://github.com/Chadsr/NordVPN-NetworkManager I'd advice you to look for clients specific for your vpn provider. I'm hoping we'll get to a place where this is more ...

Since Elementary uses the same package manager as Ubuntu, usually you can follow instructions written for that distribution. NOTE: Elementary does not come with software-properties-common installed (which is required for add-apt-repository), so here's the steps I followed to install it. sudo apt install software-properties-common sudo add-apt-repository ...

That's most likely because for better or worse, Elementary/Pantheon defaults to hiding indicators that haven't been whitelisted. You can correct this issue, and get indicator functionality back in general by following these instructions on GitHub. Basically install this package and then reboot.

You can have the VPN autoconnect by first setting up a vpn connection under the network settings. Then go to the ethernet or wifi tab and click on settings. Then under the general tab you can set it to autoconnect to the selected vpn for that connection.

These are the solutions that worked for me. I went into greater detail to explain myself and each solution. I did quite a bit of research so I wanted to share this information with this group if someone else may find it to be helpful or useful. GNOME 3.28 64 bit has a software flaw in which your desktop or notebook PC will go into suspend or sleep mode ...

Hi This is a bug in openVPN. If you want to fix DNS leak you need to use Nordvpn linux client. You can connect to nordvpn with terminal command nordvpn connect <server name> after installing the nordvpn client. See website of nordvpn how to install on linux.

Cosing the System Settings and opening it again does the trick for me. Definitely an annoying issue!

I had a similar issue with the PIA app, so I uninstalled it and configured the VPN through eOS's network configuration. No problems so far.

For your second question check out: https://elementary.io/get-involved#funding As for your first one, you might want to file a bug report instead.

In Loki, openvpn and networkmanager-openvpn are already installed. To import an *.ovpn, you need to make sure you have certificate files separate from the *.ovpn. Then go to System Settings -> Network -> VPN. Click the "+", then in the window that pops up, click on "Add". In the dropdown you'll see "Import a Saved VPN connection".
