Well, you don't give much info to go on, such as what happens when you try to start wicd. Is there an error message?

Perhaps try this:

Code:
dpkg-reconfigure wicd
update-rc.d wicd defaults
And then reboot.

Perhaps consider removing wicd and using NetworkManager instead:

First, please remember that this is not a chat site and the participants are volunteers. It may take a while for persons to see your question, decide they can help, and frame a response.

To be blunt, nagging does not win friends, but it does influence people.

You don't tell us much, such as how you are trying to start wicd.

The command to start the GUI interface is wicd-client. What happens when you run that command from a terminal?

Backtrack huh.

I run wicd ok

Code:
$ gksu wicd-gtk
Has notifications support True
Loading...
Connecting to daemon...
Connected.
displaytray True
Done loading.
refreshing...
ESSID : xxx_xxxx
make sure what shows in ifconfig -a as a wireless interface is filled in in wicd preferences>wireless interface box. Then hit the refresh button. My command above
only works if the wicd gui is installed. wicd-client works also. I just used root
in case wicd does not start for you in Back Track because of permission issues.
