Details

Description:
The new version of wicd (1.6.0-2) require also the package "notification-daemon".
This problem will affect most of the KDE users, because "notification-daemon" is in the "gnome" group and it isn't actually listed as a wicd dependancy. Without it, "wicd-client" will not start giving a traceback like this:

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Fixed in version 1.6.2. Added notification-daemon as a dependency.

In my case notification-daemon is provided by xfce4-notifyd as I'm using xfce4 and it is working fine here.
I haven't noticed any change in behaviour when compared with the previous versions.

Some other users seem to have problems while using xfce4 though.
