Re: Unable to connect Wicd D-BUS interface on BackTrack 5

I think there could be an various reasons why this particular issue is occurring on the computer. Can you tell me about the hardware configuration of the computer? Which router do you using to connect with internet? Which kind of connection do you using I mean whether it is wired or wireless. Also let me know if you are having any other information which can give a light shed on the problem which you are getting on the system of yours.

Re: Unable to connect Wicd D-BUS interface on BackTrack 5

Well in order to fix the problem of yours I am suggesting following solution which you should try and let me know whether it is working or not. You have to run the below mentioned command on the terminal.
Code:
root@evilbox:~# dpkg-reconfigure wicd
root@evilbox:~# update-rc.d wicd defaults
 Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/wicd ...
   /etc/rc0.d/K20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc1.d/K20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc6.d/K20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc2.d/S20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc3.d/S20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc4.d/S20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd
   /etc/rc5.d/S20wicd -> ../init.d/wicd

Re: Unable to connect Wicd D-BUS interface on BackTrack 5

I was having the same problem which you have mentioned over here. Well I have went to the gerix-wifi-cracker-ng and simply click on the Configuration and then I have simply clicked on the Reload Wireless Interface. Also I have tried to refresh the Wicd Network Manager and simply tried to reconnect with the router. So you should try the thing which I have mentioned over here. I am hoping that it would be useful to you.

Well I think I have managed to figure out to fix the matter of yours. you have to simply edit the /etc/network/interfaces so that it would like as I have mentioned below.
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
after doing the same you should reconnect with the router and see whether it is working or not.
