Go to the IPv4 settings tab and select "Automatic (DHCP) addresses only." This will ungray the settings for DNS servers and search domains. Enter your desired DNS server IPs in the DNS server field, separated by commas. Save and exit. If the network connection doesn't automatically reconnect to apply the new settings, you can reboot, or disable and re-enable your connection from the panel icon.

I can prevent dns leaks in windows, basically the same way. My whole purpose was to run openvpn in a linux environment so I could use the "automatic vpn" in the IPv4 settings. Does it have something to do in my firefox settings. I currently have "auto detect proxy setting for this network" ? Please someone help me.
EDIT: I have discovered, through much trial and error that only some of the serveres I connect to leak dns soooooo for those servers I should add dns to IPv4 settings???
If so, specifying those servers in the connection information field will ensure that the system's DNS requests will go to those servers.
