Setting up Mullvad to run on Mobian
#1
I have tried setting up Mullvad to run through OpenVPN (exactly how the site tells you to set up the VPN through OpenVPN in a terminal on Debian), and while nothing obviously goes wrong and my openvpn files seem to be in the right place, when I try to run sudo service openvpn start, nothing happens. Similarly nothing happens with the other command on Mullvad's website. I can't seem to import any sort of .ovpn or .conf file to the built in networking manager (it throws an unknown error), and any info I can find online about this is irrelevant, dead or unhelpful. Any help would be appreciated.

Use wireguard instead, it's better. sudo apt-get install wireguard-tools, unpack the mullvad-generated wireguard .zip file in /etc/wireguard, sudo ls /etc/wireguard | shuf -n1 to pick a random node, wg-quick up mullvad-<...>.conf

Just adding I had to install resolvconf as it was not available on fresh Mobian install. Also wg-quick command required only the connection name without .conf
