Problems with wicd-curses in console


Trying to run "wicd-curses" to get wireless connection in console mode. I get this and it craps out:

Can't connect to the daemon, trying to start it automatically...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1051, in <module>

I ran
Code:
systemctl status dbus-org.wicd.daemon.service
and get:
Code:
dbus-org.wicd.daemon.service
	  Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
	  Active: inactive (dead)
What I want is wireless connection when I boot into run level 3.
Any help is appreciated.

EDIT:
Okay I got over that now I get this:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1071, in <module>

File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 995, in main

self.__super.__init__(use_enter=False)
File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/curses_misc.py", line 351, in __init__
self.focus = focus
AttributeError: can't set attribute

EDIT again: Apparently it's a problem with python.

In order for wicd-curses to work, the wicd service has to be started. Is this happening at boot time? Is the service enabled?

I enabled it with systemctl but it still won't connect in console, only in X. And I can't get wicd-curses to start because of the above errors. Thank you for your reply.

You're welcome. Are you using Fedora 18? Maybe an answer could be found in the Fedora Forum?

Well I don't like giving up but I'm not well enough to pursue this further. I removed the wicd packages. Thanks for the replies.

Your welcome. I don't like giving up either.

If you haven't already seen it, looks like there's a bug filed on your problem.
