Hi Frans,

I?m not sure. I?m facing issues after doing this. I kind of suspect that I
should have added all users. Upon logging in with any user incl. new users
I get the following message:

Unable to contact the Wicd daemon due to an access denied error from DBus.
Please check that your user is in the netdev group.

Kind regards,
