The direct import of your ovpn file in the settings wizzard is broken. But you can set it up by hand:

  • new vpn session
  • select e. g. openvpn
  • do not import the ovpn file, skip instead!
  • define some name of your vpn
  • select the advanced button (it is Fortgeschritten at the bottom button)
  • there you find a field OpenVPN config file

I am not sure which fields must be filled, I cannot remember if I only set the name, maybe LZO and protocol??

Then you can start your tunnel.

[update: better description how to set the ovpn file name in the config dialog - not import!]
