wicd-manager-settings.conf - contains settings that control Wicd's behavior DESCRIPTION
This file contains general configuration information for Wicd. This file is located at /etc/wicd/manager-settings.conf SETTINGS
link_detect_tool = <0|1|2> 0 = autodetect 1 = ethtool 2 = mii-tool flush_tool = <0|1|2> 0 = autodetect 1 = ip 2 = route backend = <ioctl|external> Default is ioctl backend. signal_display_type = <0|1> 0 = Show signal strength as a percentage 1 = Show signal strength in dBm dhcp_client = <0|1|2|3> 0 = autodetect 1 = dhclient 2 = dhcpcd 3 = pump sudo_app = <0|1|2|3> 0 = autodetect 1 = gksu 2 = kdesu 3 = ktsuss wired_interface = <interface_name> always_show_wired_interface = <True|False> wired_connect_mode = <0|1> 0 = connect to wired interface automatically 1 = do not connect to wired interface automatically prefer_wired = <True|False> True = Switch to wired interface if a link is detected, even if already connected to wireless False = Do not switch to wired interface automatically wireless_interface = <name_of_wireless_interface> wpa_driver = <wext|madwifi|ndiswrapper|hostap|hermes|atmel|broadcom|ipw|ralinklegacy|none> The default (and best supported) is wext. It should work properly in most cases. The none special value makes WICD pass no -D parameter to wpa_supplicant, which might be useful in some cases. auto_reconnect = <True|False> This settings determines whether Wicd will attempt to reconnect on connection loss. use_global_dns = <True|False> If set to "True" and values are specified in the global DNS settings below, this will cause Wicd to use these DNS settings. global_dns_dom = <plaintext_domain_name> This specifies the default search domain to be used by the resolver. global_dns_1 = <ip_address> global_dns_2 = <ip_address> global_dns_3 = <ip_address> debug_mode = <integer_value> 0 = disabled 1 = enabled SEE ALSO

wicd-curses - curses-based wicd(8) controller DESCRIPTION
wicd-curses is a curses-based network controller that uses the Wired/Wireless Internet Connection Daemon (wicd) to control your network connections. It is suitable to run in terminal multiplexers like screen(1). It is designed to imitate the GTK-based wicd-client(1) as much as possible, and uses the Urwid ( console widget library to vastly simplify development. This man page only documents the current status of wicd-curses. This may/may not be the most up-to-date document. CONTROLS
All of these are case sensitive. C or enter Connect to selected network F8 or Q or q Quit the client. D Disconnect all devices from network connections ESC If connecting to a network, stop doing so F5 or R Refresh the network list P Bring up the preferences controller I Bring up hidden network scanning dialog H or h or ? Bring up a rather simplistic help dialog. Of course, it mentions this man page first. :-) A Raise the "About wicd-curses" dialog right-arrow Bring up network configuration controller for the selected network delete Delete the selected wired network profile (from the wired network combo box at the top) F2 Rename the selected wired network profile (from the wired network combo box at the top) S Bring up instructions on how to edit the scripts. I have implemented a way to do this in the interface itself, but making it func- tion with all Linux distros would be difficult. Since you are reading this, you should know how to do what I suggest. ;-) O Raise the Ad-Hoc network creation dialog FILES
