Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Openvpn needs no graphical user interface. Everything you need is a terminal for it!
You should read the how to and faq´s on the official site! (http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-sourc ... howto.html)
If you dont want to use a terminal there are several graphical user interfaces for Linux available, but you have to install them too.
They are also listet on the official Wiki Site! https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/w ... edProjects

and normaly you find your installed programms under /bin ;)
