So if you are login to your Plasma desktop on gentoo and seeing an error screen saying “wicd cannot connect to dbus check your user is in user group” and must be scratching your head why this is happening .. then I have a solution for it here:
All you need to do is install ‘sudo’ package and also add wicd to your boot level
Installing sudo (you need to be root to install the package)
# emerge sudo
Once done fire up below command
# rc-update add wicd default
Reboot the system and login into your plasma desktop … hell yeah it’s working !
