Is there anyone that has had problems with wicd on Arch Linux? I have
looked around the web and there are forums filled with suggestions on how
to fix it, but nothing that helps. The problem is as follows:
I just started using xfce which uses wicd; before that I had simply stuck
to dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant in the terminal. A number of things now
happen that I don't know how to account for:
1.) when I start up xfce, it gives me an error to the affect that wicd is
unable to connect to dbus,
2.) the icon on the taskbar is a little exclamation point intended to
show that the internet connection isn't working, even though if I have
dhcpcd.service up and running, my internet connection is working,
3.) when I try to start wicd with systemctl, it fails; when I try to start
it without systemctl, ostensibly it is working, but it still won't connect
to the internet,
4.) daemon.log enters the following:
Starting WICD Network Manager...
Started WICD Network Manager.
wicd.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
Unit wicd.service entered failed state.
wicd.service holdoff time over, scheduling restart.
Cannot add dependency job for unit wicd.socket, ignoring: Unit wicd.socket failed to load: No
such file or directory.
Stopping WICD Network Manager...
5.) all of this makes me think there is something wrong with the
wicd.service file or something, but I am not totally sure.
Has anyone had these problems? Does anyone know how to fix this? Can
anyone even tell with what little info I've given? Let me know if you
need more to go on and I will gladly provide what information will help.
In the Arch Linux forums, it was suggested that wicd be uninstalled and
reinstalled to fix the problem. This does fix the problem temporarily,
but then it eventually comes back, so it really only treats a symptom,
not the ailment.
Thanks in advance.
