Greetings fellow Manjaro-Enthusiasts,
after searching for solutions since a couple of days, I don't have an idea how to setup OpenVPN so it can connect to the servers. Sounds pretty silly, please hear me out however.
1) The problem
2) What I did to solve the problem
1) The problem
I don't know to use OpenVPN to connect to VPN servers.
2) What I tried to solve the problem
Installed everything needed for OpenVPN including networkmanager-openvpn.
The first try was done with the network manager in Manjaro Budgie by importing the .ovpn file given by the VPN service.
The "Save" Button is grey'd out, given the User private key is inside the .ovpn file already!
So, it does not working obviously and I started googeling around as well as searching in his forums for solutions.. and nothing helpful found except the sentence that nearly every VPN requires manual interaction to configure.
Yeah, but how?
The next logical step is going to the Arch Wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/OpenVPN
Next thing is: Who is even remotely able to understand all this gibberish? Me not.
To summarize it, as far as I understand: As OpenVPN profile is needed, so I've created it with:
sudo ln -sfv /home/USER/ovpn/DE1.ovpn.to.ovpn /etc/openvpn/ovpn.conf
.. and then?
Is it even possible to use OpenVPN on Manjaro flawlessly or am I too dumb to understand the whole process?
You can feel my frustration..
