View Full Version : wicd or wicked?

Is *wicd* to be pronounced *wicked*?

I installed wicd from the package manager - it was not working well so decided to uninstall it for good (apt-get purge wicd).

Next reboot: wicd ask for my password to "access my network cards"!

a `find / -iname "*wicd*"` showed it was everywhere (excerpt)

/etc/rc...d/K00wicd (ok that's a K)

Something seems strange with that prog...

Wrong forum, but anyway.

You need to disable network-manager for wicd to work.

Thanks... but I don't need it anymore - this was not the point of my post.

Isn't that strange that the uninstall keep so many active elements everywhere?
