wicd cant find any wireless networks (slackware 14.0)


I've installed libnotify, and wicd-gtk gui starts, but it cant find any wireless networks

My network adapter is working, and I've put my user in the 'netdev' group.

I've also changed permissions on 'etc/rc.d/rc.wicd' to 755, group 'users'.

I cant get internet! Help me! Help me! Help!

check to see what your connection is called. I found mine was eth1 instead of wlan0 when I checked ifconfig. I modified wicd to look for eth1 and all was well after that.
