    I just use the default networkmanager for openvpn.

    You just have to install the appropraite network-manager-openvpn package.
    Note that if you are using unity, the network-manager-openvpn-gnome package needs to be installed too

    In Ubuntu 12.10, VPN is an option in the Network Manager.You can open it by clicking on the network icon in the top bar and select "Edit connections" or by opening the dash (windows key) and start typing "network".
    I have never used VPN, hopefully someone else will tell you how.

    Isn't that for PPTP (point to point tunneling)? I want a gui to use for openvpn.

    as said you need the networkmanager-openvpn and the network-manager-openvpn-gnome package before the openvpn option shows up.
    restart nm-applet and networkmanager after installing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn network-manager-openvpn-gnome

    Did the terminal thing. I am using GNOME. OS Ubuntu 12.04 studio 64 bit.
    What am I suppose to do now?

    If you already installed networkmanager-openvpn and the network-manager-openvpn-gnome packages, as suggested by sandyd, your network applet menu will let you configure VPN connections. It will have an additional "VPN Connections" menu, with a submenu to "Configure VPN...". From there, you can import your existing .ovpn file, enter the location of your key and certificate files, enter the key password, etc.

    Depending on your vpn server configuration and your needs, you may also want to define special DNS servers and/or check "Use this connection only for resources on it's network".

    See this and this.
