Here is one way to connect to the Universities open VPN.
1. First get the script to use in the setup.
2. Next open terminal and run:
sudo apt-get install openvpn
sudo dnf install openvpn
3. Then when you want to connect to VPN run (if the client.ovpn file is not in the Downloads folder you might need to change the path):
sudo openvpn --config $HOME/Downloads/client.ovpn
You'll probably be asked for computer password.
Then put your username (without @ending).
And finally your ugla password.
