Connecting directly to PenguinVPN in Fedora 30, 31, & 32, 33, & 34

The directions have been vetted against and work on Fedora 30, 31, 32, 33, & 34:

1. Open Firefox, download and save to your home folder

2. Open your file manager and extract the contents of the tar.gz file downloaded to the .cert directory (make this if it does not exist, if you click the three little lines icon in the top right you will see an option to Show Hidden Files, as folders with a period are hidden by default)

3. Open a terminal and run the following command (click Activities in the top left and search for terminal then click to open)

restorecon -R -v ~/.cert

4. Click on the drop down arrow or network applet in the top right corner of the screen
5. Then select the cogwheel (settings) to access the settings control center
6. Under Network click the + icon next to VPN
7. Select Import from file... and find the ovpn file in the directory previously extracted (in your home folder there should be a .cert directory that is not visible.. so to access it hold down the left ctrl key and then hit the l key on the keyboard to bring up a location box in the open dialog window, then type .cert into the location box and hit enter to enter this hidden directory and select the .ovpn file)
8. Click Open
9. Select password under the Type drop down menu and enter your user name and password for the VPN
10. Click Add
11. Use the on/off / connect button to turn on the VPN via the network applet or the drop down arrow in the top right corner of the screen

If everything worked then you should see some other city/state/country when you check out what your IP address is. To do that visit a site like
