I am getting the following message when I use that command.

4213 ?     S.     0:01 /usr/bin/python   -0/usr/share/wicd/gtk/wicd-client.py-t

4337 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep wicd

Is there any way to install gnome player without gsplat if I cant get it working? Also does the Spotify Linux install work on Vector Linux?

One thing at the time, we need to get your network up. According to your previous posts, the wicd daemon is not running, and you can not see the wicd pid file.

Let's make sure:
open a terminal
become root by command "su" and entering your root password
type "rm -f /var/run/wicd/wicd.pid" and press Enter
reboot

Be sure to learn "tab completion". In this case you'd type:
rm -f /va[Tab] and it will fill in the rest (/var/)
continue something like this:
rm -f /va[Tab]/ru[Tab]/wic[Tab]/wicd.p[Tab]
If it does not auto-complete, press Tab again to see if there are several choices to choose from.

Does the computer have an ethernet connection, or is it wireless?

By now, the final versions of VL 7.2 are available. I recommend a reinstall using one of the official isos:
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.2/iso-release/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.2/iso-release/

For quick compatibility testing, you can try the live versions to see if one does better than the other. There is a 64-bit version of Light, and a 32-bit version of STD to choose from.
