Plasma-nm5 Openvpn

I am trying to set up a vpn, when I switch to NetworkManager Service in Network Settings it tells me that an applet must be running but I cannot get it to run, it simply isn’t there. I can get the connection manager and set up the vpn but I cannot change from Wicked to NetworkManager.

Plasma-nm5 is installed, when I hit Alt -F2 KNetworkManager doesn’t show.

Sorry I’m a bit of a newbie and getting rather frustrated.

I don’t want to pay for a VPN if I can’t set one up!

Any help would be most appreciated.
