So, I like to use wicd as my network manager, as it makes some of my games much nicer to play on. Sadly, for some reason, when I moved to Kubuntu, Steam seems to fail when I use wicd, but doesn't when I use the standard NetworkManager. Since I really don't have any idea what would cause it, I wanted to see if anyone knew what was going on.
My system uses the following kernel:
