Got this error when I plug a usb stick on my newly installed Slackware 12.2 machine (Axioo TVS laptop)

This is how I fix it :

I add my username (‘rumy’ in this case) on plugdev group (/etc/group), restarting messagebus and hald (/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus and /etc/rc.d/rc.hald) and Voila! everything works fine.


I’ve always forget the menu location, I put it here so I know where to look ;)


Here’s the workaround:


root@cbug-nest:~# /usr/bin/start-network

After that clicking Internet -> Wicd Network Manager (or type /usr/bin/wicd-client on terminal) should bring you the Wicd Manager
