[Abandoned] Unable to import vpn config

Post by Snafu » Wed Jul 18, 2018 3:10 am

I have installed Nordvpn as per instructions but cannot add a vpn connection to network manager. If I try to do so via network settings, after navigating to the config I want in ovpn_udp folder and clicking on the config I want to add the window closes. If I try to add a connection via network settings I get one step further, the config opens as it should but the "add" button stays greyed out.
