Here's a script for 1.8.2 that installs OpenVPN (if not yet installed) and modifies ferm.conf, torrc and ip route to enable OpenVPN over Tor.
Requirement: Working OpenVPN config in /home/amnesia/Persistent/vpn.ovpn.

looking back at the "constructive" feedback in #tails I should add that the *.ovpn needs to be configured using TCP (obvious but I mentioned it hereby).
- you might want to consider not to run openvpn as root user but user "openvpn" - maybe according to https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/UnprivilegedUser
- it was way better to have fixed markers in ferm.conf that awk could look for
- a user "vpnuser" used to 'sudo -u vpnuser desired_software' was desirable too instead to (ab)use the user "clearnet"
