I am ever soo close to getting my wireless card configured for Linux (slack 12.2). I'm trying to run this wicd program, which came preinstalled with the cd's I purchased at the slackware website. The instructions for setting up wicd is very short and I'm going to break it down into four different parts. The first part is as follows:
After installing this package, make sure the /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd
script is executable; if necessary, do:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd
OK, those instructions were easy as pie, and actually the wicd program is running on my laptop, but the only thing is, I don't see a wicd icon in my system tray. The direction I'm having trouble in is this:
I need/want to remove
any references to interfaces from /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf - in
other words, make that file look as if netconfig has never been
That is the first thing I need help on.
Q#1. How do I go about doing that?
Q#2: Also, is there a particular way to start wicd even after its running because this quote is also part of my instruction?
When you start X, you should see a wicd icon in the system tray;
click on it to open the gui interface and configure as desired.
Cool!!! I can't wait to see it. Bring it On!!!
Ok, now the fourth and final part of the instruction is
Anytime this package is updated, you will need to restart the
deamon, stop the system tray icon, and then run "wicd-client &"
to restart the system tray icon.
I haven't been fortunate, and privileged, enough to get this far. But it doesn't look complicated.
Q#3: Do I restart deamon or wicd? It say's deamon so I must find the command to do that because I don't see that part in the instruction manual of this wicd configuration.
Q#4 Is it pretty explanatory on how to stop, and restart the system tray icon?
It all looks really easy, but then again, its Slackware!!!
lol I will settle for nothing less.
