I'm trying to set up an OpenVPN connection and I've imported the correct .opvn file and provided the username and password. I don't have a CA certificate so I left this field with the default option . Unfortunately I cannot save the configuration. Any idea why or how I can avoid this problem. I tried creating the openvpn connection from the command line and it worked but I would be great if I could use the network manager.

Best regards,

The same problem shows up when no password for the private key is given, but as a workaround, any dummy password will work. Nevertheless, the gui is not thought-out very well. –  Chris Feb 25 '14 at 14:04
