I've installed gtg by adding ppa to repository. When I run gtg from terminal some features go idle. How can I active these features?

GTG maintainer here. All those features are optional and provide you way how to synchronize with external services like Launchpad, Mantis or Evolution. Their dependencies are listed in README:

=== Dependencies for Synchronization Services ===

Evolution synchronization service has dependencies:
  * python-evolution
  * python-dateutil

Because of a bug in PyGTK (see,
the synchronization service freezes GTG and the synchronization service can't be used.

MantisBT synchronization service has a dependency:
  * python-suds

Launchpad synchronization service has a dependency:
  * python-launchpadlib

Gnote and Tomboy synchronization services has no external dependency.

Identica and Twitter synchronization services are shipped with the local
version of Tweety library.

Remember the Milk synchronization service is shipped with a library for RTM api.
It has an external dependency:
  * python-dateutil

Remember the Milk is not maintained for a long time and might be potentially harmful.

As you can see, some of them are not mainted for a long time. We will be glad if somebody takes the ownership. Patches or any other contribution is welcome!

Additional features will be displayed when adding a new synchronization service in

Edit -> Synchronization Services
