The only change in dbus has been the removal of it/'s automatic starting.  It looks like simply an issue of starting dbus before using WICD.

EDIT: Installed it and I see there is still an issue.  Let me take a look.

I will change the WICD startup script which will fix the issue.

If I try to use wicd:

..looks like ncurses-utils is missing as a dep?

..but then:
Code: [Select]
Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface.  Check the wicd log for error messages.
dbus is running

I had observed the 'tput' related messages earlier (see response #10) and I'm pretty sure that they are benign. As far as I can "see" it would just be used to change the color of some messages when using 'wicd-curses'. It might be prudent to wrap those three lines from '/usr/local/bin/wicd-client' into something like if [ `which tput` ]

Unfortunately that still leaves you with the daemon issue. Anything useful in '/var/log/wicd/wicd.log' ? I guess you've already done a few cycles of: sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus stop ; sudo wicd-start and  done a check with sudo netstat -anp | grep -i 'dbus|python'

Testing WICD on a stock 2.11rc3 just works fine (for sure the same with 2.10):



Installing    ncurses-utils.tcz tput related error messages are gone:



However you do not need ncurses-utils.tcz when GTK GUI used. Also, missing pynotify can be safely omitted but you can add notify-python.tcz if you wish.

BTW, I'm planning to split WICD to a GTK and CLI version to optimize its size and dependencies for TC/MC.

^thehatsrule^, please keep pictures. They are so small :)

OK - had another go and got it working [I may have forgotten wicd-start  :-[ ]

The icon doesn't show (maybe for the reasons mentioned in another post) and wicd might benefit from an init.d script, but works otherwise  :)

Hi guys.
I know its an old post...
New to Linux and all...
I have an issue with wicd. When I open the GUI, it shows my wireless network, I can connect - all good.
What I cannot do is to make it connect automatically after restart =( When I connect, change some connection properties
(like static IP etc) it saves the settings to /usr/local/var/lib/wicd/configurations
But after a restart, the folder is empty =( Please help

Hi fokcuk
Try adding the following two lines to your   /opt/.filetool.lst   file
usr/local/etc/wicd
usr/local/var/lib/wicd/configurations

Add the following to   /opt/bootlocal.sh
wicd-start

The first step makes your settings persistent, the second step starts wicd upon boot up.

Thanks, Rich!
Second part is already done. wicd starts fine (I think I might have added it as sudo wicd-start), it just does not connect.
Will do the first part tonight!

Hi fokcuk
The  bootlocal.sh  script runs as root, so  sudo  is not required for commands in that script.
