iwconfig

In order for you to get wpa_supplicant status, you'll need root privileges. To do this, you either use a su gui interface (such as kdesu), like this

Code:
$ kdesu wpa_gui
or you can change wpa_gui to use suid

Code:
# chmod 4755 /usr/bin/wpa_gui
$ wpa_gui
both way will let you get wpa_supplicant status, but in the first one, being a more secure, will require you to enter the root password everytime, while the second is a more direct approach, but insecure. I guess.
