Settings dialog crashes when selecting openvpn file (.ovpn) from vpn configuration.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download openvpn files e.g. from PureVPN ( https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/heartbleed/linux/linux-files.zip )
  2. Extract zip in Home folder
  3. Create new vpn connection and select one of the ovpn files

Expected behaviour:

Enter Username and Password as next step.

What happens?

Settings dialog crashes.

edit: when i have some spare time i will run this via terminal and look if there are any debug hints on the crash...

edit2: tried manual setup with ovpn files from purevpn. no sucess. keeps 'connecting...' forever. no error. no timeout. (yes i adjusted file paths for keyfiles in ovpn file to absolute paths)

edit3: Did not work in and still not working in

edit4: Fixed in

I experience the same behaviour using my own .ovpn file. Seems fine with "SecureFishNet" app.

Same here with .ovpn file from Autistici/Inventati VPN

Same here. Accepted solution from cy8aer works partially, here: https://together.jolla.com/question/157386/how-can-i-set-up-openvpn-with-new-210-ui/

Unfortunately, even after configuring in advanced mode, it does not cope with key files which are protected by a passphrase. Instead, it asks for a username and a password, which is not needed at all. So the feature is not ready for my setup at this moment -- that is OK, for a functionality marked as beta.

i have tried manual setup with above linked purevpn ovpn files (adjusted key file path) but could not get it working. it just keeps 'connecting...' forever. no error no timeout
