openvpn: Linux ifconfig failed

I get this error message when trying to connect to a vpn server:

openvpn: Linux ifconfig failed: could not execute external program

Could you please fix this bug? There is a workaround to "fix" this through symlinks but I think that is not the optimal solution.

I'm not sure how you're running openvpn but in my case I just fire up a terminal and run:

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/sbin/openvpn devNET_k0nsl_k0nsl_SE.ovpn
That works for me :)

Best wishes,
