VPN Connecting Slow

  • Hello,
    I have a problem with the Opera VPN in Linux.
    It connects very very slow (takes about 2min). But it connects after the 2min immediately, even if I disable the VPN after starting up Opera and re-enable it after the 2min. So it always after ~2min after I started the Opera Browser.

    I have this problem with all my Linux PCs (T420 Thinkpad an my Gaming Pc). I have this problem with all Distros (Kubuntu 17.04, 17.10 & 18.04), Deepin and openSUSE Tumbleweed.
    But with macOS it works fine. Opera VPN is connecting immediately after startup.

    Of course I'm using the newest Version of Opera. I also tried the Beta & Developer version. Same problem.

    What I tried to solve the problem:
    -clear Browser Data (Cache, ...)
    -disable all Extensions
    -reboot my computer
    -reinstalling opera
    -switch Opera VPN on off
    -disabling hardware acceleration

    But nothing worked. Has anyone a solution?
    Thanks
    Liemaeu
