Installing NetworkManager-gnome-vpnc helps (even under xfce).  Perhaps this is a missing dependency issue.
Comment 2 Jirka Klimes 2013-11-25 04:16:30 EST
Yeah, the plugin packages were split into two parts (main VPN service and GUI stuff),

So, NetworkManager-vpnc source package now contains NetworkManager-vpnc and NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome packages. NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome is needed for nm-applet/nm-connection-editor.

I can confirm that installing NetworkManager-openvpn-gnome & NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome in Fedora20 allows for vpnc/openvpnc configuration under NetworkManager under XFCE (have not tested in Gnome, but I suspect it works there now too).

Does this mean the dependency has now been added?
