PPVPN Manager won't launch after Xubuntu 21.04 update


Freshly Joined Member
Was working fine but since 21.04 update, nothing happens when trying to launch the VPN manager.
Is this a known issue or is there some 3rd party dependency that ubuntu disables by default after updates?

Did you find a solution to this issue? I just installed Ubuntu 21.10 and see the same issue--the app won't open. What are you using as a workaround? Thanks!
