    [SOLVED] Wicd upgrade to 1.5.1, now Wicd asks root's password every boot

    I upgraded from Wicd 1.4.1, using Wicd_1.5.1_all.deb. (from: https://sourceforge.net/project/show...roup_id=194573)
    I did nothing special, just double clicked it and let it install it installed without errors or warnings.

    When I boot my computer I am asked for the root password after I have logged in.
    A dialog pops up with this text:
    "Wicd needs to access your computer's network cards"
    underneath is a box where I can enter the password, after I give it the root password, the internet connection is working, but there is no tray icon even though wicd-client has automatically been added to session startup. If I then run wicd-client from the Terminal I get the tray icon.


    When I try to reinstall the package I get this:
    http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/1...installvm4.png
    I can also not reinstall network-manager I get a similar error message.

    here is /var/log/wicd/wicd.log

    Re: Wicd upgrade to 1.5.1, now Wicd asks root's password every boot

    The cause of the problem was that I still had the old /etc/int.d/wicd script, as in the one from the previous version 1.4.2

    The problem seems to be solved by opening the wicd_1.5.1_all.deb file in archive manager, then open the etc/init.d/wicd script that is in the .deb file and copy its contents over the contents of the /etc/init.d/wicd script that is on the hard drive.

    No clue why it did not install that file properly when installing wicd_1.5.1_all.deb
