Can anybody tell me how to make a PPTP in Lubuntu?

When I try to add VPN connection there isn't any filed there I have to choose PPTP

  • Do you have network-manager-pptp installed? Run dpkg -l | grep network-manager-pptp to check, and if not, try installing the package. – mikewhatever Jun 15 '13 at 19:13

there are a few things to check first.

  1. Make sure you have a vpn client installed sudo apt-get install pptp-linux should do it
  2. Make sure the 'network manager' modules are installed sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome
  3. Make sure your authorized to edit network connections. Best way to answer this is can you sudo.


  • To restart I had to execute: "sudo systemctl restart network-manager" – Daniel Mora Mar 19 '18 at 13:50
