Version: wicd 1.6.0.

Recipe "4.3 Connecting as a Normal User" does not working for me, because not enougth privileges to start wicd daemon. It works if I just adding my user to group "users".

Let me show content of my original /etc/dbus-1/system.d/wicd.conf is (without header and footer):

        <policy user="root">
                <allow own="org.wicd.daemon"/>
                <allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon"/>
                <allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon"/>
                <allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.wireless"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.wireless"/>
		<allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.wired"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.wired"/>
		<allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.config"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.config"/>
        </policy>

        <policy at_console="true">
                <allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon"/>
                <allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon"/>
		<allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.wireless"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.wireless"/>
		<allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.wired"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.wired"/>
		<allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon.config"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon.config"/>
		<allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable"/>
        </policy>

        <policy context="default">
                <deny own="org.wicd.daemon"/>
        </policy>

	 <!-- This Unix group will have permission to use Wicd's gui -->
        <policy group="users">
                <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable"/>
                <allow send_destination="org.wicd.daemon"/>
                <allow send_interface="org.wicd.daemon"/>
        </policy>

Pay your attention to the comment "This Unix group will have permission to use Wicd's gui".

No need for rebooting

There is no need to reboot your computer after installing and configuring wicd. Arch != Windows so there's no need to reboot after installing some (trivial) stuff like wicd, If you want your new group for a user to be active you can just logout and login.
