    New Ubuntu install. Who do I get PIA to automatically connect on startup

    Hi, I would like Ubuntu to automatically connect to my PIA VPN on startup and break any internet connection if PIA is not connected or goes down. As of now I have to right click on networks, connect to PIA VPN, enter my password every time I start my commuter or take it out of sleep mode. Any help? thanks

    If you use ifupdown, then you can use the post-up, pre-down stanzas to handle this. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to get netplan or any GUI tool how to accomplish the same.

    Works for me with no problems. Check in the settings.
