Network Manger, Arch#!, Cant edit VPN-MobileBB connections

hey everybody, hope everyone's well.

I have a laptop with a newly installed ArchBang distro running.
I have a VPN account with strongVPN, but i have a problem.
I have succesfully installed network manger, so i have the applet showing in my system tray no worries. However i cannot edit any VPN connections or mobile broadband connections. The grey boxes just dont let me click on them and edit :S weird.

i had a look here first

which got me onto.....

I installed everything there except the kovpn, as thats just another front for network manger....

I'm really stuck... i dont know why i cant edit Network Manger's connections, either set up my mobile broaband, or connect to my VPN, because i cant click the greyed out buttons.

I'm obviously doing something stupid and would appreciate any help you guys could give.

Thanks alot and i hope you all have a safe and merry christmas.
BTW --> my little sister, who has never touched a linux computer in her life, asked me to make her a coffee.... i said 'no'.... she then said "sudo make me a coffee" lol .... technology.

Kind regards.
