I've not personally used KPPP so I'm not sure where it puts the files 
that it generates, but from a command-line, you should be able to type:

pppd call connection_name

Where connection_name is the name of a file in the /etc/ppp/peers/ 
directory. If that fails, try adding debug to the end of the 
command-line entry (although, you may only be able to specify the debug 
option if you're root) and then check your logs for more information 
and/or error messages (and post back here).
