Wicd error


I use Slackware 13, Xfce and i installed from extra directory package wicd for managing wireless networks. But when i run wicd it gives me error:

Code:
Could not connect to wicd's D-bus interface.
Check the wicd log for error messages.

Have you started the wicd service? That needs to be running (start it as root) first before you can use it.

To make the daemon start every time you boot up, do this as root:

Code:
# chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd
//EDIT: This next step is unnecessary:
=======


Then add these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Code:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then
  . /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd start
fi
=======

You then can add wicd-client to your desktop environment's startup, if you don't want to have to start it yourself every time.

Ahmed, I believe that wicd service "call" is already added to /etc/rc.d/rc.M, so there is no need for adding those lines to rc.local. He only needs to give executable permission to rc.wicd script.

Of all the scripts I looked through, I forgot to check rc.M Thanks, post edited.
