Ubuntu – Unable to load VPN connection editor in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Some time ago I created a VPN connection using Ubuntus own Network Manager, which worked fine! Now, a few months later, I want to go in and edit the connections details, but instead I get this error: unable to load VPN connection editor.

enter image description here

Any idea how this could be solved?

Starting the connection manager manually with nm-connection-editor lets you edit the settings, but that still leaves the original error.
