I'm trying to configure Linux Network-Manager GUI for OpenVPN. I'm following the instructions from ubuntu's server guide. I tried to install it using the following command and realized it's already present in my system.
root@apoorv:~# apt install network-manager-openvpn Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done network-manager-openvpn is already the newest version (1.8.2-1). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 51 not upgraded.
According to the instructions,
To inform network-manager about the new installed packages you will have to restart it
But when I restart it, I get the following error:
root@apoorv:~# restart network-manager Command 'restart' not found, did you mean: command 'rstart' from deb x11-session-utils command 'restartd' from deb restartd Try: apt install <deb name>
Then I tried this:
root@apoorv:~# systemctl restart network-manager
But it seems like nothing happened.
What am I supposed to do here? How can I set up open VPN on ubuntu 18.04? I've been trying to find a free VPN for ubuntu for weeks now but always tend to fail to configure it because of how complex things get. Are there any easily configurable VPNs for noobs?
