Slack 13 and wicd
'Ello. I cannot get wicd to work with slackware 13.
The package in extra was 16.2.1 and I'd heard that upgrading to 16.2.2 would fix it, so I removed it and got the source installed. I heard that it did not put the init files in the correct place, so I manually copied them to /etc/rc.d. I even removed /home/user/.wicd between installations like it was suggested.
However, my WPA2 encrypted ssid is still "hidden", and returns the error: "Connection failed: Could not contact the wireless access point." when I try to connect.
Also, when I use iwlist wlan0 scan, it shows the correct ssid.
Anyone, please help me. I would very much like my desktop back. This stupid dell laptop is driving me insane, help me, please, please.
Actually I suppose I could go back to 12.2 but I KNOW there's a way to get this working. >:C
