I know it's kind of a legacy software now, but is there anyway to get wicd-gtk working again? I am using wpa_gui instead and it's not as nice at all.

dman777 ... what exactly isn't working? The useflag still exists and is +use.

Code:
% awk '/gtk/&& gsub(/ +/," ")1' <(equery -NC u net-misc/wicd)
 + - gtk : Installs a gtk UI. This is enabled by default because it is intended behavior. Requires dev-python/pygtk

Is it perhaps a case of your not having CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT=y ... required as wicd uses the now depreicated WEXT.

Have you considered dhcpcd-ui with either the GTK+ or Qt interfaces?

I enabled CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT, but still no success. The first time it runs it complains about dbus. Then, on the second run it won't complain about dbus and it will run ok. But it won't find any wireless interfaces.

Code:
ocalhost one # !wi
