Lxqt Kvantum VPN woes
« on: 09. May 2016, 09:16:39 »
I have tried to find a way to install PrivateInternetAccess VPN but no luck. There doesn't seem to be anything in the NetworkManager that leads to a VPN. I've googled, read the wiki to the best of my ability, looked at posts on Youtube and no luck. The network manager says there is a VPN plugin missing? Out of my depth maybe.

You only need 'networkmanager-openvpn'.

That is all.

Edit connections..., Add, select OpenVPN, Create...

Thank you jonathon and others for the help. I now have mention of VPN  in the network manager.


 (simple fix really.)
