Networking? More like Notworking (Wicd and Network Manager Broken?)

Wicd won't run for me and NetworkManager never seems to be able to connect because of some errror. 

$ sudo systemctl start wicd
Failed to issue method call: Unit wicd.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status wicd.service' for details.

I see that systemctl doesn't see wicd yet, so I'll reboot in a second and try to start wicd again. 

Here's what nm-applet prints out when I try to connect to my local network. 

** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

** (nm-applet:31344): WARNING **: Failed to register as an agent: (32) Session not found

and a little error window pops up with the following message

(1) Creating object for path '/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/1' failed in libnm-glib

Any ideas?  So far I can only connect using netcfg, and even then I lose my connection every so often, and I can't connect to anything if the NetworkManager.service is running.

Disabling or remowing netcfg worked for me with disconnecting problem.Once it was disabled network manager or wicd worked fine.

Netcfg isn't enabled, though.  Nor have I been able to ever start netcfg successfully. 

Here's what happens when I try to start it. 

$ sudo systemctl start netcfg
Job for netcfg.service failed. See 'systemctl status netcfg.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

Here's what systemctl status returns on netcfg. 

$ sudo systemctl status netcfg

Re: Networking? More like Notworking (Wicd and Network Manager Broken?)

The easiest way for me was installing wpa_supplicant,wpa_actiond and dialog(I use wpa2),run "wifi-menu",choose my network and type password for network and "sudo systemctl enable net-auto-wireless".No wicd or network manager.Works like a charm.First time I installed Arch I made mistake and installed more than one network manager and I had disconnections becouse they were in conflict,so I had to leave only one and disable/remove the others.Also I think if you want netcfg enabled you should do "systemctl enable netcfg" not "systemctl start netcfg".Maybe I'm wrong but you should try.

Re: Networking? More like Notworking (Wicd and Network Manager Broken?)

Aren't those /org/freedesktop/whatever dbus actions.  So those errors/messages (I think) seem to indicate your dbus might not be working right.  I can honestly say that I am nowhere near sure on this, but maybe something is awry as a result of the recent dbus updates?  I know that the 30-dbus file went away for a second, but was reinstated with an update an hour or so later.  This was responsible for ensureing dbus was being launched, though in most cases programs are able to launch dbus as needed.

Do you have either dbus-launch or something else that handes that in your .xinitrc?

I dunno, I run Arch on my latop, and I like having a firm grasp, that is an iron fist on my system at all times... I'll try the systemctl enable netcfg, but I think that it should also work with start.

Re: Networking? More like Notworking (Wicd and Network Manager Broken?)

netcfg appears to think it has no saved state to load. I've never used netcfg but maybe there is no configuration file for it so it can't find the information it needs to set the network up?

Note that I am just going by the error message - I don't know anything about how this works.
