    Default Wicd Wont start

    When I double click on the WiCD icon nothing happens, I'm trying it when the icon is in the applications menu, on the desktop, and on the toolbar but nothing executes. I have started this program in the past but now it wont start at all.

    Correct me if im wrong, you ned to start it up first,

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/networking start
    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    then Internet>Wicd Network Manager

    Or just
    Code:
    start-network
    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.

    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    /usr/bin/wicd-client &

    I noticed that when editing the link in the KDE Menu Editor it had the --no-tray argument after the wicd-client command. I removed this argument and it worked fine.

    BTW: You can edit the link by right clicking on it.
