add VPN connection ... is not active

Post by michalq » Fri Aug 30, 2019 10:15 am

I am using Mint 19.2 XFCE, when I tried to add VPN connection via right-click on panel Network manager icon i realised, that this option is totally inactive. Why?

How about left-click >> VPN connections >> Configure VPN? Would that work?
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.

No, this does not work at all ... One again, I can not make any action regarding VPN via panel default network icon.

I was trying to create a new VPN connection under Network Manager -> VPN Connections. Now I realised that I need to create a new VPN connection under network Manager -> Edit Connections. Why is that? Is this XFCE related problem?

Moreover, there are some discussions about the same topic, see search.php?keywords=%22add+vpn+connection%22
but I am still a bit confused why this functionality is not active out of the box?
