I'm attempting to setup a VPN in Linux Mint 17.1 using the network manager. When I click the + button to add a new connection type, and select VPN, it only lists the option to import files?

I'm lost, because I've done this before on Ubuntu all I needed to do was select OpenVPN as the Connection Type. Am I missing a step?

    @roaima, thanks for the assistance but with some more fierce googling I managed to finally figure it out! :) – timbram May 23 '15 at 19:37
  • @timbram can you post what you have done to solve your problem? – Diego Macario May 25 '15 at 18:41
  • Yeah, I will do so ASAP as I am mobile now. I had posted an answer with a link but it looks like someone deleted it or something because they felt it wasn't a good enough answer... – timbram May 25 '15 at 18:49
