I recently Updated Linux Mint (13) - I didn't upgrade the distro, but it seems that I updated network-manager.
After a restart (that was required), the VPN (openvpn) connection stopped working.
I tried an alternative one (that I also use) - didn't work either, it's just stuck at "connecting".

I'm getting (from syslog):

[nm-vpn-connection.c:934] get_secrets_cb(): Failed to request VPN secrets #2: (6) No agents were available for this request.

<info> VPN service 'openvpn' disappeared

Any ideas ?

  • Delete the file ~/.gconf/apps/nm-applet/%gconf.xml:

rm ~/.gconf/apps/nm-applet/%gconf.xml

  • Logout of Linux Mint
  • Login in Linux Mint

And it works again :-)
