Wicd linux network manager

Today, while browsing the net for a little info, I went to the page of wicd I initially rejected it as an option but then decided to test. In general, the installation through the package manager has packages for Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Fedora, Slackware, and Gentoo has a download page for other distros. I looked at the download package as it is generally installed through a python so I don't think it will be a problem for any other distro. There were generally no requirements for libraries other than to remove the default no manager 🙂 no problems to remove it it is put elementary. After installation you restart your X with ctr + alt + back space and you will see the new icon in your sys tray. I will not go into details about the settings you have internally, everything is more than simple, a window is displayed asking you which network you want to hook up to and then a lan or wlan icon appears.. Now it's time to ask what's better than the old one, but whoever used the new Ubuntu knows that the net manager is super bad 😉 and even if you don't think so, it doesn't hurt to try something new if you don't like it, no problem, beat your old one. For me certain wicd is better already tested on ubuntu and debian leni works perfectly 🙂
