Trying to setup my vpn on my laptop, I get the error invalid vpn secrets and a prompt asking for me to make a keyring password. Researched and hard to find answers any help would help. Im using btguard for my vpn.

Thank you

I take it you're attempting to connect through networkmanager after installing
network-manager-openvpn
?

As in this tutorial:

I don't know if this still applies, but have you tried removing the "Available to all users" option in the networkmanager connection ?

Try this

Install lxsession-edit
Code:
sudo apt-get install lxsession-edit

then go to

menu > Preferences > Desktop Session Settings

put a tick in - SSH Key Agent
put a tick in - Certificate and Key Storage
put a tick in - GPG Password Agent
put a tick in - Secret Storage Service

REBOOT.

Thanks for the help but I got it fixed, had to delete the vpn I made and made a new. Also stopped and restarted network manager followed by a system reboot.

Great :) .. thanks for letting us know how you resolved the issue (looks like it probably WAS the "Available to all users" thing then) .. it may help someone else in the future.

Hope you don't mind but I'm going to mark this (SOLVED) for you .. if you'd prefer to leave it open, let me know.
