    Default wicd won't appear at all.

    Hi all.
    First of all let me appreciate the work of remote-exploit. This is a great site.

    I have a problem with wicd, after installing backtrack 4 to HDD.

    I am able to play very well with the air-crack suite (i demonstrated how it's simple to crack a WEP in a lab - 15 mins with active injection - and attendees were going mad... Noone is going to use WEP anymore :-) )

    I have such a stupid (i think) problem: wicd doesn't start at all. I mean i click on wicd from the menu and nothing appears.

    i tried to start it as root, to stop monitor mode first, to launch X as root.
    Nothing worked.

    Can please someone help?

    Thank you in advance.

    simple.
    open up konsole, and type in wicd. out put should be this
    /var/run/wicd/wicd.pid
    then try opening up wicd again from the menu.

    I like to use just terminal:
    First give command: 'wicd' which executes '/var/run/wicd/wicd.pid'
    Then just give command 'wicd-client' and wicd appears in tray-menu.
    After you have connected to your desired network just Ctrl-C and the tray-menu item will disapear.

    Just my two cents, hope this helped.
