It looks like you have the applets, but do you have the underlying programs that provide those features?

For instance, for the nm-pptp applet to work, you need pptp to be installed.  In Debian and Ubuntu that packages is called pptp-linux. You didn't mention your distro, but I'm assuming it is not one of those two since they would have automatically installed the prerequisites.

Similarly, there is a package called vpnc that is needed to make the nm-vpnc work and openvpn has to be installed for Network Manager to be able to control openvpn connections.

I was searching the archive and googled this thing but I cannot find a solution, so I decided to ask you :)
