I can't get wicd-client working ether. This is the output:

Did you install them both? If so, that may be your problem. They'll conflict with each other since both of them have a service that runs at startup. Try stopping one and then restarting the other. I prefer wicd myself.
Temporarily just to see if they're conflicting, you can just /etc/rc.d/<whichever> stop then /etc/rc.d/<the other> restart and launch it's corresponding frontend to see if it works then. If one/both does work with having the other service stopped, uninstall whichever one doesn't work for you or whichever one you simply prefer less. No point in having them both installed.
