PPA description

gopenvpn is a simple graphical front-end for OpenVPN, the open source VPN solution. It provides a GNOME system tray icon from which OpenVPN connections can be started and stopped, and a dialog from which OpenVPN's logs can be viewed. It can manage multiple simultaneous connections, and graphically indicates when you're connected to a VPN tunnel.

When using Unity gopenvpn must be on the systray whitelist this can be done with dconf-editor(GUI) or gsettings(Terminal):
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Goto desktop -> unity -> panel
Edit systray-whitelist and add gopenvpn to the end of the list
['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'gopenvpn']

This will return the current whitelist
gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist
['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray']
Copy the current list and add gopenvpn to the end
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'gopenvpn']"

Logout for setting to apply.
