VPN tab missing on network manager

Hello fellow Xfce users.
I've recently changed my system from Manjaro to Debian Buster, both of them with Xfce.

I use a lot of vpn so when I first tried to configure to access my university network, after clicking on "add a vpn connection" I was getting no response.

Looking around on the web I've been suggested to install the network-manager-openconnect package.

Now I can get to the vpn editing screen but the VPN tab is nowhere to be found.

Can anybody help?

UPDATE

I've been messing around with the network manager and found out that other vpn options are working fine, but whenever I select to create a Cisco AnyConnect compatible VPN (openconnect) the VPN tab is missing.

Still working on it but any help would be much appreciated.

Does installing network-manager-openvpn-gnome help?

Yea that was one of the first solutions I've found out there. Didn't worked though.

Re: VPN tab missing on network manager

Here is another UPDATE:

Since everyone in multiple forums were suggesting to download gnome packages I decided to try:

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openconnect-gnome

It actually worked.

I feel kind of stupid now, sorry for the nuisance and thanks for the help.

Re: VPN tab missing on network manager

I had the same issue. This is confusing. The two packages are similarly named, and network-manager-openvpn-gnome feels like something you shouldn't install on Xfce...
