Configuring OpenVPN for Mullvad with Network Manager

The following doesn't work, I suspect because update-resolv-conf in the downloaded archive isn't being executed.

  1. # apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
  2. - # apt-get install resolveconf
  3. # service network-manager restart
  4. Download the configuration files for OpenVPN per the section “Linux General (follow these steps for all Linux dists)” at https://www.mullvad.net/guides/linux-openvpn-installation/ and expand the archive.
  5. Click the Network Manager notification icon and select VPN Connections > Add VPN Connection …
  6. Select OpenVPN as connection type and click Create.
  7. Give the connection a name and use the following for credentials and configuration 1)
    • Gateway should be openvpn.mullvad.net
    • User Certificate ⇒ the file mullvad.crt
    • CA Certificate ⇒ the file ca.crt
    • Private Key ⇒ the file mullvad.key
      • The Private Key Password is only required if the Private Key is encrypted, if you don't have a password probably it is not needed.
