FS#1830 - networkmanager-openvpn connectivity issue

Hi guys :)
I'm a new tester for Chakra since I fell in love with Qt and KDE
I experienced a small issue with the openvpn client of NM
the issue is when I import an ovpn file it imports very well and adds it to the NM applet successfully but when I try to connect it says : VPN connection has stopped / failed

so basically what I figured it out is "the user / group of nm-openvpn" is not listed in the systemd-sysusers.d
so I create nm-openvpn.conf file under /usr/lib64/sysusers.d/
and open it and added the following :

u nm-openvpn - -

g nm-openvpn - -

saved the file and then did the following :

sudo systemd-sysusers /usr/lib64/sysusers.d/nm-openvpn.conf

and after that the VPN is connected without any issue ;)

hope you can re-package the networkmanager-openvpn with this small edit

Thank you for your hard work...I'm really impressed with what you've done big +1

This task does not depend on any other tasks.
