My problem is this: I can't create a new OpenVPN (or any other type) connection using network manager in an Azure UBUNTU 16.04 LTS virtual machine. The reason is that once I click "create", all options in the editing form appear greyed out (see screenshot) and I can't enter any information in any fiel of any tab.
I am login with the default user created during installation, and use a remote desktop connection from windows to access the UBUNTU VM through an Xfce desktop. I've installed the usual OpenVPN packages and network manager plugins (otherwise the OpenVPN option wouldn't even appear).
I am clueless... can anybody help, please? None of the suggestions in this similar question worked for me...
Thanks in advance!!
Tried changing permissions for "inactive" sessions in
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.policy as hinted by @steeldriver, but still having the same problem :-(
Also, I have noticed a weird thing: when I logout from my Remote Desktop Xfce session instead of logging out it takes me to a different Xfce session... with TWO network manager icons in the top right. If I logout again, it finally logsout and closes the Remote Desktop.
