I am trying to install OpenVPN 2.4.6 on Ubuntu 18.04. After extracting the archive with tar xvf I am running ./configure. At this point, the process fails with the message: "configure: error: openssl check failed". I am quite new to Linux, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. After trying what has been suggested by fkraiem I received the following error message:
I managed to make it work by pulling openvpn-install.sh from git.io and installing it.
