I have created an OpenVPN connection to GigaNews' VyperVPN but it doesn't connect. I followed all of their procedures found here:

In my /var/log/syslog I find this:

Mar  4 16:57:45 X123 NetworkManager[1511]: 
<warn> connection /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Settings/0 failed to activate: 
(1) Could not find source connection, or the source connection had no active device.

Why the title OpenVPN? That page talk about PPTP and not at all about OpenVPN. – enzotib Dec 21 '13 at 10:03

I use a different VPN service, but this may be of use to you. The process works perfectly for me on Ubuntu 13.10.

It involves installing the OpenVPN Network Manager and tweaking a few settings.
