Due to multiple, critical problems in network-manager-openvpn which after years have not been solved we recommend to NOT use it. Please understand that we will not provide support to network-manager-openvpn. In GNU/Linux we recommend that you run our free and open source software "Eddie" or OpenVPN directly
- Go to Config Generator page, choose Linux and choose your preferred options.
- Select Advanced Mode
- Tick Separate certs/keys from .ovpn files
- Click on any archive format. Save the downloaded archive file somewhere, say in ~/.airvpn. Extract it. Five files should be extracted. Try to make sure nobody but you can read the file user.key, because that one is secret.
- Install the package named network-manager-openvpn-gnome, which is a plugin to NetworkManager handling OpenVPN connections. The install will automatically include all needed packages, like openvpn etc.
- Click on NetworkManager icon in top-right bar, and choose Edit Connections...
- Click Add, choose Import a saved VPN configuration, click Create... and choose a .ovpn file extracted from files generated by our Config Generator.
- The imported information is displayed. Click Save... and close the NetworkManager Connections editor.
- From now on, the imported connections are showed under VPN Connections menu. Click it to connect.
