I use ProtonVPN too. All I do is download whatever country I want to use config file and load it via Network Connections.
Your login credentials are on the main page of ProtonVPN...



We have all the software you need so in the guide below, start at 2. Get the ProtonVPN config files:

also FAILS for me on xubuntu so probably not a linuxliteos issue


# protonvpn c -r
Connecting to JP-FREE#1 via TCP...
[!] Authentication failed.
[!] Please make sure that your Username and Password is correct.


options i used were
Please choose your ProtonVPN Plan
1) Free
2) Basic
3) Plus
4) Visionary

Your plan: 1

Choose the default OpenVPN protocol.
OpenVPN can act on two different protocols: UDP and TCP.
UDP is preferred for speed but might be blocked in some networks.
TCP is not as fast but a lot harder to block.
Input your preferred protocol. (Default: UDP)

1) UDP
2) TCP

Your choice: 2

I use protonvpn too and had this problem as well when started using it till I realized that was using the wrong credentials, which are not your protonvpn's but the ones in the page jerry linked in a previous post. First, login to your protonvpn account and in the dashboard click on Account >> Openvpn/ikv2 and finally copy the openvpn/ikv2 username and openvpn/ikv2 password by clicking in copy, then use those credentials in the protonvpn cli-client, which is the one youre using right?



Hope this helps! :)
