Summary0004971: Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log to see the error messages.
DescriptionError message :

1.- Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log for error messages.

2.- The wicd service has stopped. The user interface will not work correctly until it is restarted.

My PC :

- Virtual machine
- - Product: VMware® Workstation 12 Pro
- - Version: 12.5.7 build-5813279

- OS
- - Linux: Kali 2018.3
- - Version: Lxde 64 Bit


- When the operating system starts, an error message appears:
"Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log for error messages.".

- When I accept the error message, it immediately shows another error:
"The wicd service has stopped, the user interface will not work properly until it is restarted."

The error does not allow me to perform COPY / PASTE from the graphical user interface.

In Kali 2018.1 and Kali 2018.2 it does not show that error, but when updating the version to Kali 2018.3 it also continues to show the same failure.

I just added wicd to the list of services that can be auto-started by default. Should be active with base-files 2018.4.0.
