I just installed Slackware 13. Wicd was working fine under 12.2, but now it gives the following error:
Unable to contact the Wicd daemon due to an access denied error from DBus. Please check that your user is in the netdev group.
except my user certainly is in the netdev group (as well as the root user, and I put them all in messagebus, haldaemon, and plugdev as well, just in case.) Running the client manually from the command line gives the following not-helpful-to-me error:
ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on :1.39:/org/wicd/daemon: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.64" (uid=100 pid=5514 comm="python -O /usr/lib/wicd/wicd-client.py ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable" member="Introspect" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination=":1.39" (uid=0 pid=3538 comm="python -O /usr/lib/wicd/wicd-daemon.py "))
(I'm also having HAL problems with X: I can't get above 800x600. I lost a couple of hours mucking with xorg.conf-vesa before I remembered to check the changes and hints file. That's not important right now, except as further evidence that I've got a systemwide HAL problem, not just a wicd quirk.)
Any suggestions are appreciated.
