Network Manager GUI or OpenVPN front end?

Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:09 am

I would like to run OpenVPN on my Raspbian "Wheezy" build.

I cannot seem to find a GUI interface I can use to easily install my certificate and import my .ovpn files.
There is no network-manager link available in LXDE as far as I could see.

I installed:

I tried to run
/etc/init.d/network-manager start

But it is already running.

Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

you can install network-manager-gnome. Afterward the GUI can be started using the command "nm-applet".

Kind regards,

I suggest to use Wicd

aptitude install wicd wicd-gtk wicd-curses

Here's an article in German we published just now: ... verwalten/

It has some screenshots, so you'll get the idea probably.

(Note: the gnome network manager suggested in this post did not work for me, so I searched and found wicd) - tools to make your life with the Pi a little bit easier

Even though I never tried it on my Pi, QuantumGuard probably does the job.

Open-Source, cross-platform, quantum resistant cryptography.

Let me know if it worked on your pi.
