If you find difficulties installing the OpenVPN Server manually under Ubuntu or Linux Mint, you can instead use a bash script created by Nyr that will install OpenVPN automatically on your computer with just a few terminal commands.
The bash script supports the following distributions:
- Ubuntu 15.04/14.04 or older
- Linux Mint 17.2 or older

Open the terminal and run these commands to install OpenVPN:
wget git.io/vpn –no-check-certificate -O openvpn-setup.sh
