I can't seem to get my openvpn connection to automatically connect when I wake up from system suspend or reboot. The openvpn connection works fine through the GUI, except there is no option to auto-connect. I've tried using nm-connection-editor, but after I check the box to auto-connect and save, the connection inexplicably fails. Adding secondaries to my wifi network through nmcli results in the same failure to connect. How can I auto-connect to my VPN through the GUI in Ubuntu 17.10? It seems like this is broken or something.
Update: So after selecting the auto-connect option from nm-connection-editor, then rebooting, I can manually reconnect to both interfaces successfully (the vpn service starts along with the network manager), but the system fails to connect automatically for some cryptic reason.
