Basically said there are two different methods to setup up nVpn on Linux Ubuntu, simply pick your favorite:
1. If you use Ubuntu with a GUI (what the most users do) then using the "Network Manager" easily would be the most comfortable solution, check this video here
Important: But unlike shown in the video at 02:03 time you should NOT add the profile and edit it manually afterwards, instead only click on IMPORT and choose your "Username.ovpn" file, it will import all required settings properly without having to fiddle with the profile settings (which can only make things worse, if you dont know what you are doing anyways).
[+] Give the script executable permissions: chmod u+x openvpn_linux_setup.sh
[+] Start the script now: ./openvpn_linux_setup.sh
[+] Now the script will ask you to enter your Username and your already in the members area added port.
When the script finished successfully, you will be suddenly dropped and lose the connection to your server. From this point on the next connect works with the VPN IP and your forwarded port. Once connected to your server, you can double check the IP change was successful by doing: curl ipecho.net/plain;echo
