Wicd won't install correctly/run correctly (64-bit Slackware 13)


When I installed Wicd, and ran it for the first time, I got an error something like: "Could not connect to Wicd's dbus session- check the Wicd log file for more info". However, later when I restarted my computer, Wicd started, but I can't connect to my network, it shows up as <hidden>, like in this picture: http://www.filefactory.com/file/b0f19dh/n/wicd.jpg.

I can connect to linksys, so I know that wireless is working on that computer. I know that there's nothing wrong with my wireless router, because I can connect to my network in this computer.

I tried to install version 1.7, didn't work. 1.5 works fine though, or at least my network shows up. The other one is still <hidden>.
