Hi everyone, I am a new member and also new to linux, I encountered a problem, but last week I tried but did not solve
I downloaded iso file linux 1.1.0 on page potassium, I installed on my Dell inspiron n4010, it works very well and does not have any errors, but after I update and upgrade all packages, I rebooted the system switches to the command line, I lost a lot of time to return to the graphics, but when booting up the network manager icon not seen, I have set the package network-manager-gnome_0.9.4.1-0ubuntu2_i386.deb network manager icon show but when click on the network manager icon only contained text "network manager is not running."
I also installed Wicd but could not run "could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log for error messages."
wireless driver apparently was set before
root@kali:~# airmon-ng
PHY Interface Driver Chipset

phy0 wlan0 wl Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

not to be rude but......

did you read the section
" is kali right for you"
the FIRST paragraph
As the distributions developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if youre unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.
and the warning
In addition, misuse of security and penetration testing tools within a network, particularly without specific authorization, may cause irreparable damage and result in significant consequences, personal and/or legal. Not understanding what you were doing is not going to work as an excuse.

the target user for KALI is a person that can FROM MEMORY!!!!! write the guide and tutorials on setting up a network

Regarding Wicd you probaly need to enable and start Wicd service before you can use the gui tool. I'm not familiar with Debian so I can't give you the exact commands. I hope someone else can fill in the details.

I agree with John VV. If a Linux distro takes time to caution people that the distro is not suitable for inexperienced users, then I would by all means heed that warning.

Also on the same page that John VV linked to:
Network services disabled by default: Kali Linux contains sysvinit hooks which disable network services by default. These hooks allow us to install various services on Kali Linux, while ensuring that our distribution remains secure by default, no matter what packages are installed. Additional services such as Bluetooth are also blacklisted by default.
The distro apparently has complex security features.

the kali devs disabled networking

if you are doing your best " jams bond" impersonation you DO NOT want your machine pinging every wireless hot spot making it's self known
nor broadcasting the mac ( the random one you make on connection not the REAL one) address

Have you tried pressing the wireless button in the F-keys?
Have you tried
rfkill list
ifup wlan0
