WICD DBus problem


Today when I turn on my laptop I get this error initialize wicd:

bash-3.1# wicd-client
libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

The last program I installed was xfce4-power-manager 0.8.3.1 form a slackbuild that I made.
I uninstall xfce4-power-manager and the error continuous, what can I do?

Try running it as a normal user, not as root.

Thank for the reply, but I tried that and I have the same problem.
I remember something, I accidentally remove /tmp/ folder, I make sudo mkdir /tmp/, is this relevant?

When I try to run wicd-curses I get this error:

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Instead of editing to qualify a post for information you should either note the change or append the information. Sometimes history information can be used to aid with the new error information.

If you re-create the '/tmp' as root and you re-boot. Do you still see the error? What about checking processes with 'ps -aux'?

You could try the new wicd package.

When you re-create a missing /tmp, you should also give it proper attributes. Every user has to be able to write in /tmp or a lot of processes will simply not work correctly. As root:
Code:
chmod 1777 /tmp

I solved the problem, when I run wicd -foe, I get a parser error, for the file /etc/wicd/wired-settings.conf, because the extra '\n' just remove the final change of line in that file and restart the deamon.
