    Default 13.2 (GNOME) - NetworkManager - openvpn - set IPv4 method to "Automatic (DHCP) addresses only"?

    Linux noob who is normally an *ubuntu user, but decided to try out openSUSE 13.2. I'm running GNOME, and trying to get my Private Internet Access VPN set up and have run into an unexpected problem. I installed/updated openvpn, network-manager-openvpn, and network-manager-openvpn-gnome just like I did for Ubuntu. I filled out the identity tab with the gateway, my login, and .ca file no problem. Checked LZO compression in advanced settings. But when I went to set the IPv4 method, I did not see an option for "Automatic (DHCP) Addresses Only."

    I have a screenshot here: http://i.imgur.com/idwOrB3.png
    PIA's setup instructions here: https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...nvpn_installer


    Under the drop down menu for "Addresses," there is only three options, Automatic (DHCP), Manual, and Link-Local Only. The PIA website instructs me to select Automatic (DHCP) Addresses Only, but it isn't there. I don't remember the Link-Local Only option in Ubuntu. Is that the same thing? After a bit of research, I'm inclined to say "no."


    If not, I guess I'll have to learn how to configure openvpn in the command line, which is a shame, because I really like NetworkManager.

    You mentioned that there is the 'Automatic (DHCP)' option. Did you try that?
