OS VERSION: 184.108.40.206
HARDWARE: Xperia XA2
UI LANGUAGE: English
REGRESSION: Yes (Though it was already there in 4.3 but I could add those VPN at some point so it’s technically a regression but I don’t know from which version)
It’s kind of similar to [220.127.116.11] Bug: VPN "forgets" config and creds after reboot but goes a bit further (I don’t know if it’s related or the exact same bug or something else entirely):
I have a bunch of ProtonVPN as OpenVPN files and some server are about to be removed and they have new better files so I tried to clean everything and add the new one. unfortunately once I forget everything if I try to enable/disable the new server the entire list revert to it’s previous status.
Also similarly to the one I linked before if I try to “forget” everything and reboot the list is also reverted. I’m left with no options to add or remove any VPN.
OpenVPN files and a pre-existing vpn list
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Forget all vpn in the vpn list in settings
- Try to add a new one
- Enable/disable the new one (or try reboot)
- see the list reset to its previous state
The VPN list doesn’t revert to its previous state
The list revert to its previous state
No patch at all.

I could provide a strace or a similar tool to give you information about read and write access but it seems strace isn’t a part of the default binaries. Please tell me if I can provide something that could help you.
Note: I’m used to Gentoo (on my desktop) which doesn’t have systemd (by default) if I missed any logs that could have been provided by it please tell me.
I also couldn’t find where this VPN list is stored, I tried to search in .local and dconf and check if there is any path in the QML files but couldn’t find one. If you could point me where is the setting file so I can edit it myself to workaround the issue that would be awesome.
