"VPN" tab is missing.

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-11-03 11:59

Hello,
According to https://protonvpn.com/support/linux-vpn-setup/ tutorial, I want to import OpenVPN configuration, but I can't see any "VPN" tab: https://ibb.co/25zKcfV
What is wrong? I'm using MATE Desktop.

Thank you.

You need to ask at ProtonVPN.

Is it because of their service?

The problem is, as far as I can see, that your network manager does not support the VPN option.
Maybe whatever NM version your desktop is using is too old or something.

Because they wrote the software.

It's network manager (or whatever lookalike MATE Desktop may be using), which is certainly not written by the Proton people.

The OP probably needs to apt install network-manager-openvpn-gnome, but how would he know, if he never reads the documentation of anything.

I installed "network-manager-openvpn". I'm using MATE Desktop.
I installed "network-manager-openvpn-gnome" and problem solved, but why not "network-manager-openvpn" ?

Believe or not, network-manager is (in debian) a command line program/daemon.

If you want GUI, you need network-management-gnome, and if you want the openvpn GUI then you need network-management-openvpn-gnome.

I imagine there's also some kind of network-manager-kde or whatever.
