Where are the openvpn packages?

Postby cb474 » Thu Feb 28, 2013 3:27 am

I'm confused. Is openvpn not available in LMDE?

I'm searching in Synaptic and I do not see any openvpn packages. In particular these ones:

openvpn
network-manager-openvpn
network-manager-openvpn-gnome

This seems very odd. Are they really not in the repos?

Check if you accidentally clicked on some filter button in Synaptic... (on the left side)
Also check the availability of these packages by using apt-cache, for example:

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy openvpn
openvpn:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2.2.1-8
  Version table:
     2.2.1-8 0
        500 http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/latest/ testing/main amd64 Packages

Thanks for the apt-cache tip. Strangely, I have two systems with LMDE running (both up to date) and on the other system I do see the openvpn packages I mentioned. I'll have to check the first system again tonight. Perhaps I did accidentally click some filter.
