    Are you using Network Manager? I've seen a couple of similar approaches using scripts to check that a network interface is active and then activate the VPN connection accordingly. If your comfortable working with bash scripts then this may suit your needs. (I manually connect, since I don't always need my PPTP VPN.)

    1. A script that starts when the DE starts. You'll need to edit it to suit:

    2. Using a script located in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/

    This ArchLinux wiki page will probably be enough to get you sorted

    and similarly

    Hope this helps.
