WiFi Manager For IceWM
 
Hello,
I'm having some problems with IceWM. I was a Gnome user, and their wireless-network-applet was very simple and useful. When I changed to IceWM, I can't connect to any wireless, because I don't have any manager or applet to make it for me. Then I want to know which is the best one and how to use it on IceWM :)

Best Regards,
Nathan Paulino Campos

Hi nathanpc,

actually the gnome-applet should also work with IceWM, provided you've still gnome installed.
Anyway there are many tools to configure the connections.
But since you have used the gnome-applet so far, the question should be, how to integrate the gnome-applet in IceWM.
If this does not meet your requirements, please post which encryption you are using and if you're running wpa_supplicant and/or wicd or any other such programms yet.

Hello Markus,
I don't want to use gnome-applet on my IceWM, because I want to get it more original, I'm trying to get out of the problems that I had with Gnome and it's heavy process. :)

Anyway, I'm using WEP encryption on my network

Well, for WEP you may look at wicd.
You may install wicd from the Ubuntu repositories. I'm using wicd with KDE and it was integrated automatically.
You'll find the documentation here: http://wicd.sourceforge.net/

In case Wicd wants to uninstall Network Manager (which is usually the case) Ceni handles wep and wpa and will not uninstall Network Manager in the process (in case you want to keep it). Look for it in Synaptic Package manager or Ubuntu Software Center.
