    Exclamation Issues with VPN in Kali2.0

    I have paid for a PIA VPN and I am having issues setting it up in Kali 2.0.

    I get an error that says "No candidate found for network-manager"

    I have tried these steps --> https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...ubuntu-openvpn
    Also tried the steps on BlackMore's VPN setup guide.

    Neither have worked.

    Any idea whats going on?

    Can someone help me get it setup? -Thanks

    I have also tried this & got the following errors

    root@Airborne:~# apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome

    I was able to get the original issue solved:--> The sources list needed to be updated to reflect this:

    # Regular repositories deb http://http.kali.org/kali">http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security">http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free

    # Source repositories deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-freeThat being said, I now have the following issue. After setting up the PIA VPN & trying to start from the command line it still does not connect all the way.

    - As you can see the command starts the VPN but when I one the browser it does not run...what could the problem be?

    I couldn't help but notice some weird formatting in your post (as in "http://http.kali.org/kali"). i'm both trying to get VPN to work and apparently missing a lot of packages throught apt-get. After install I had to alter sources.list since all of the lines were commented out (which is why it wouldn't update). My sources.list file now reads:

    #

    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 _Sana_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20150811-08:02]/ sana contrib main non-free

    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 _Sana_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20150811-08:02]/ sana contrib main non-free

    # Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free
    # Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free

    Is yours the same??

    My problem with VPN, btw, is that it the gnome network manager only accepts .ovpn files, and i cannot create one that satisfies the system (and there's no manual configuration option).
