Spent a lot of time to set it up to work with TAP, my steps:
  • Turn on developer mode (hold down Esc + F3, restart, hit Control+D).
  • Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T, type ‘shell’, hit enter). In my case Ctrl + Alt + F2
  • sudo vim /etc/resolv.conf; add “nameserver” (replacing “” with the right IP) at the top
  • openvpn --mktun --dev tap0
  • openvpn --config /user/vpn/openvpn.ovpn --dev tap0
  • When you’re done with the VPN, switch back to this tab and hit Ctrl+C
  • openvpn --rmtun --dev tap0

Hope this will save your time while set up.
