View Full Version : [ubuntu] OpenVPN fails to start -Natty...

This is all over Google, 3 years ago it was reported as a bug in Ubuntu, Kubuntu and the lot. Google is full of this problem, but no solution!
I have my OpenVPN working in Windows and I imported my settings from there, didn't work, neither did making settings as instructed by my OpenVPN provider in Network Manager.

When attempting to connect I get a libnotify or whatever it is message:
The VPN connection [name] failed to start
Connection was not provided by any settings service

I added the following to the conf file located in

<policy user="at_console">
<policy user="at_console">
<allow own="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.vpnc"/>
<allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn"/>
That sorted out the OpenVPN service failing to start issue for my but it threw me straight into this issue, which doesn't appear to have a solution to it.
