If you use ExpressVPN, this info might be useful.

The ExpressVPN connection is working. In theory it's a cookbook process. In fact, the cookbook is not so easy to read. Several key facts were missing or obfuscated in ExpressVPN's manual step-by-step installation instructions.

I tried three ExpressVPN chat sessions to no avail. In the end, I used ExpressVPN's Ubuntu how-to as a guide, which worked first time. All the missing clues are here: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/vpn-s...n/#install

Just follow it and use your head AFTER you download and unpack everything you'll need via the ultimately doomed manual install process. Save the crazy uid and password they give you. I put the files in a subdirectory in my Home directory.

Got your files? OK. Fire up Connections (Manjaro/KDE) from System Settings - not from the menu bar. If you try it from the menu bar it will lock up just when you are starting to get things done and you'll have to force a restart with the power button. Did that three times. Add a new Open VPN connection. Name your connection and start following the Ubuntu instructions. The elusive gateway entry info is found inside the .ovpn file you just downloaded from ExpressVPN. Don't use the whole line in the file. Look at the Ubuntu example to see what you need.

The username and password are strings that ExpressVPN gave you at the start of the manual install process. Not your account credentials.

That's it. One more dragon tamed (don't slay dragons, only tame 'em).
